2 Agenda Integration Issues Introduction A Typical Building vs. An Intelligent Building Principles of Integrated Solutions Four Case Studies Service & Support Q&A
3 A Typical Building Setup Systems operate in isolation Information not shared across platforms Asset data is often duplicated Natural Gas Meters Water Meters Compressed Air Meters Occupancy Sensors Light Sensors Temperature Sensors Humidity Sensors Pressure Sensors Electric Meters Security HVAC Equipment SCADA Lotus Notes Weather Data Renewable Power Maintenance System BMS Lighting Steam Meters Metering System
4 The Intelligent Building Systems share information through a central, unifying system An interconnected smart building enables advanced control and a higher level of automation to save energy and improve productivity Natural Gas Meters Water Meters Compressed Air Meters Occupancy Sensors Light Sensors Temperature Sensors Humidity Sensors Pressure Sensors Electric Meters Security HVAC Equipment SCADA Lotus Notes Weather Data Renewable Power Maintenance System BMS Lighting Steam Meters Metering System

6 6 Campus: Integration Issues Compound Legacy Equipment, Policies, Administration, and Competing approaches Legacy equipment is easy to integrate compared to multiple buildings & telecommunications infrastructures. Some are open, others are proprietary and/or obscure. Differing telecommunications infrastructures Transaction-based middleware cant provide consistent performance or reliability Differing densities of Measurement Instrumentation Some buildings have a sufficient number of sensors & meters to provide sufficient data for an energy efficiency play. Others have little to nothing at all.

12 Integration Requirements: 1.Real-time Middleware Integration Platform 2.Support Multiple Protocols with Open Interfaces
13 ORNL WAGES Metering & Integration Hundreds of Buildings A Pilot Project made more sense fiscally and logistically Only a few buildings to start Networking Technologies dating back to 1950s Questionable Conduits & Quality Politics Consistent with any Institute of Higher Learning or Government Laboratory, or Department Competing objectives and agendas inextricably tied to the overarching Energy Efficiency play Variable Measurement Capabilities Everything from Manual Entry to Completely Automated Report Generation
14 Integration Requirements: 1.Real-time Middleware Integration Platform 2.Support Multiple Protocols 3.Allow competing Departments to get their Pet Feature without impacting other Departments, Project Costs, or Schedule.
15 Mori Towers Solution Overview User Support Features Visualizations Reporting Metrics Reliability / Scalability Integration Remote Access Flexible and strong web server architecture
16 Solution Overview Multi-Function Operations HVAC Lighting Energy management and reporting Fire and Security Equipment / Activity scheduling Requires strong communication capabilities to the Building Automation sub-systems, and an integrated scheduler
17 Solution Synopsis Facility-wide Monitoring Role based security Multi-protocol support Open communications Flexible clients Zero administration clients Secure remote access Cloud Computing SQL, MES, Reports Control Layer
18 Reliability Communication Redundancy Automatic Failover Automatic Recovery Automatic Client Switchover Multiple Servers Multiple Communication Paths Client Services Communications Alarm and Event notification Data logging and Storage reporting
19 Reliability Scalable Virtually unlimited expansion Clustered distribution Installations with over 2 million devices Installations with over 200 locations Installations with over 100 CALs You know a system is reliable when it is used to control runway lights on airports, and shuttle facilities for NASA! Multi-threaded Multi-CPU Multi-Cluster
29 Integration Requirements: 1.Real-time Middleware Integration Platform 2.Support Multiple Protocols 3.Allow competing Departments to get their Pet Feature without impacting other Departments, Project Costs, or Schedule. 4.Critical Systems Level Reliability, Scalability, And Client Flexibility/Consistency
30 Second Line of Defense (SLD) Mission Strengthen the capabilities of partner countries to deter, detect, and interdict illicit trafficking of special nuclear and other radioactive materials at international border crossings including airports, seaports, and other points of entry/exit. Strategy Develop cooperative efforts to mitigate the risk of illicit trafficking through: Search, detection, and identification of nuclear and other radioactive materials Development of response procedures and capabilities Deterrence of future trafficking in illicit nuclear and nuclear-related materials Goal Deliver an effective and sustainable global capability to deter, detect, and interdict illicit trafficking in special nuclear and other radioactive materials
31 SLD: Two Primary Programs SLD Program CORE Initiative Megaports Initiative Equip more than 450 points of entry: airports, border crossings, and small feeder seaports Bolster detection capabilities of foreign border officials or affiliated agencies Partner with International or multilateral organizations (IAEA, EU) Equip 100 international seaports Bolster detection capabilities of foreign customs officials and port authorities Partner with other U.S. federal agencies CBP/ICE: Container Security Initiative (CSI) CBP: Secure Freight Initiative (SFI) DHS: ASP deployment

Service & Support The Long-Term Differentiator for Successful Projects
39 Support as a Success Factor (See Frost & Sullivan, March 2011) Maximizing Return on Automation Solution Investments through Effective Technical Support People, Process, Product The order is important Average Cost of 24 hours of Downtime: $6.3M In some industries, $6.4M is the average cost for 1 hour of Downtime Key Customer Criteria for Solutions Providers in Order: 1.Quality 2.Support 3.Price 4.Delivery Time 5.Vendor Flexibility 6.Reputation & Expertise 7.Product Innovation 8.Warranty
40 Innovative Support Models Comprehensive Solutions Level Support Models & Agreements Without regard to the mix of vendor components Global Consistency with Local Availability One model for all locations with local resources familiar with site specific needs

43 Integrating Disparate Systems Requires… Hardware Agnosticism from Sale to Service & Support Even Greenfield projects are best served by multiple providers Realtime Middleware as the Glue for Integration Transaction-based middleware cant provide consistent performance or reliability A Service & Support Offering for the Real World Not just a support offering for a single vendors offerings. A Solutions Oriented Approach Making The Most of Your Energy Requires more than a mere Collection of Components. It Requires A Big-Picture Solutions Mind-set.
44 Conclusions Facility Managers need solutions that can assist them to keep operational costs low, Energy Efficiency high, and their facility in top working order, such as Building Systems that can work together to extend beyond their individual capabilities and enable a truly intelligent building Top tier solutions for Facilities Monitoring that can scale from small buildings to large scale commercial enterprises and close the gap between Building Automation and Facilities Management. Solutions are currently deployed in Hospitals, Universities, Airports, High-rise offices, and Exhibition Centers. All of the power used in these systems is available and can be applied to your facility today.
