Solutions to connect assets and keep people safe
Building Management Systems are evolving with the adoption of newer technologies that support businesses to help keep employees and customers safe from COVID-19.
Some of the many applications we're connecting...
The rapid growth of Smart Building technology
Until the start of 2020, the primary function of smart building IoT technology has been environmental management, preventive maintenance, building security and safety. These applications enable organisations to remotely monitor, remotely control and automate processes, delivering cost efficiency and safer, secure buildings.
With the global outbreak of Covid-19, we are now seeing the rapid growth of newer smart building applications. Technologies such as thermal imaging cameras and occupancy monitoring systems are being deployed to help minimise the risk of spreading coronavirus – helping those responsible to actively manage social distancing policies.
Why are smart building solution providers turning to cellular connectivity?
Although IoT smart building applications are growing, the fundamental connectivity needs of solution providers have not changed. They continue to need simple, highly secure and resilient connectivity and the expertise to deploy across a range of buildings and environments.
Many smart building solution providers are now choosing to deploy cellular connectivity over (or in addition to) other technologies such as WiFi. The reasons for this are clear. Firstly, with cellular connectivity, we typically see end-to-end ownership by the solution provider, who isn’t reliant on other, fixed line networks whose policies can make integration difficult. Further to this, it can often be the case that fixed lines are not in place or will take several months to be installed.
Cellular connectivity removes these potential challenges and allows systems to be implemented within days without the costs of deploying and managing a network. Providers with high security standards such as ISO27001, provide the reassurance that data will be processed securely.
Bandwidth requirements and signal strength are key considerations for any IoT system, and with the availability of 4G and the creation of new IoT specific cellular technologies such as LTE-M, there are cellular choices that meets the need of every use case.
IoT Connectivity Solutions for Smart Buildings
If you’re involved in the development of a connected smart building solution, you’ll know that building managers, owners and public sector bodies are actively looking for ways to operate buildings more safely, cost effectively and with less impact on the environment by reducing emissions. Our free on demand webinar will explain the key connectivity challenges for solution providers, and how it can quickly deliver resilient, secure and easy to manage connectivity across multiple locations.

Avoid major investment in owned IT architecture, leased lines and support infrastructure
Any network, any number of deployments, all under a single monthly bill through SIMPro
Low and High-Bandwidth IoT connectivity
For each connected building and Smart City application, levels of data throughput vary. Our solutions will be built around expected data usage, with tariffs tailored to each deployment, whether as single units or spread across multiple devices with data aggregation.
Best value tariffs are determined around a number of criteria including the longevity of the project, use of single or multiple networks, levels of security required and location. At each stage of the deployment, ‘stress-tests’ can ensure that the application is pushing out the expected data loads – all viewed, monitored and managed through the SIMPro platform.
Secure – every step of the journey
For every application, keeping the data safe and secure is often mission-critical. Corrupt or hacked information can have massive implications whether for an infrastructure organisation, facilities management business or a HVAC application.
Local locking down, encrypting and delivering the most resilient private network overlays are all vital components within the Wireless Logic infrastructure. To learn more, click here.
