In June, Cimetrics had a productive three days at Realcom/IBcon events in Las Vegas. These events provide a platform for industry professionals to network, learn from industry leaders, discover cutting-edge technologies, and stay updated with the latest trends shaping the future of the real estate and smart building industries. The conference attract a diverse audience, including real estate owners, developers, investors, facility managers, IT professionals, architects, engineers, and technology solution providers.
Cimetrics attended the event to learn new trends in the industry, to network with fellow professionals, and to showcase our Secured By Cimetrics products and BACnet routers. Secured By Cimetrics (SbC) is an architecture developed to bring manageability of BACnet/SC systems. The SbC Appliance at the heart of SbC acts as a traffic cop and hub for BACnet/SC devices, and provides critical security telemetry to IT departments in standardized format they are used to receiving.
The SbC3100/3200 BACnet/SC Firewall/Routers connect unsecured BACnet MS/TP and BACnet/IP to secure BACnet/SC networks with configurable firewall policies. And the BACnet/SC SbC4000 Management Appliance provides advanced onboarding and diagnostics of BACnet/SC devices through passive and active network monitoring while acting as a Certificate Authority, BACnet/SC Hub, and integrating with IT SIEM tools.
The Cimetrics B3071/3075 B/IP to B/IP Router is a cost-effective way to bridge IP segments and avoid the need for large numbers of corporate IP addresses.
We also attended and presented at some of the show talks and events. Most interesting at the show was a cybersecurity forum where there were several presentations and sessions on cybersecurity. Jim Lee presented at this pre-conference session CRE Cybersecurity Forum. Anto Budiardjo and Jim Lee presented IBB – Buidling Interoperability Building Box as well as Secured by Cimetrics.
We saw a great deal of interest in Cybersecurity, BACnet Secure Connect and Secured by Cimetrics – we talked to several people, especially consulting engineers who were trying to learn how to specify BACnet-based cybersecurity. The other issues discussed were - OT/IT boundaries and overlap, Zero Trust, BACnet/SC as a way to meet security needs, and Threat levels externally from nationsstates,to internally from domestic actors.
In addition, we noticed, there was a lot of interest in analytics, specifically ESG as an application area – people were looking at sustainability metrics.
Overall, it was a very interesting event and experience – we would like to thank Realcom organizers for a great event!
