2018 BACnet Golden week
——The Path to Big Data and Building IoT Forum Invitation

2018 November 12end to 16th, Beijing China

Since the SSPC-135 Committee was set up by American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) in 1987, BACnet technology has become the national standard of more than thirty countries, and has been adopted by many International Standardization Organizations, such as ANSI, ISO and CEN. As an open intelligent building automation control system protocol standard, BACnet technology standard is at end-users and manufacturers’ disposal for free. BACnet standard doesn’t depend on special hardware, and has gained a tremendous success worldwide——there have been more than 1083 manufacturers using BACnet by 2018 July 18th and 52 of them are in China.

With the high development of 4C technology(computer, communication, control and Cathode Ray Tube) and the great effort to build the information superhighway globally, smart building,which is the product of Digitization, networking and informatization, starts coming into view. However, today various control functions in smart buildings become more powerful and complex, devices manufactured by different manufacturers are used in the same building. Each manufacturer develops their own proprietary communication protocols, various communication protocols and devices bring much inconvenience to the system integration and management of smart buildings, users are controlled by manufacturers for the price, increasing usage and maintenance costs. As a result, it's important and urgent to establish an open and unified communication protocol standard, and provide a plug and play environment. BACnet ,a kind of bus and communication protocol for smart buildings, with the hot topics like big data and Internet of things (IOT) technologies, has provided many efficient solutions for the building automation industry

“BACnet Golden week” was held successfully in Shenzhen and Shenzhen, and has had a wide range of effects. In order to promote BACnet better this year, and meet the development of the Chinese customers to understand the BACnet technology in the China domestic and foreign markets, to grasp the basic knowledge of BACnet protocol and BACnet equipment interoperability testing needs, BI - BACnet International, BIG-EU - BACnet Interest Group Europe and BACnet Interest Group China and Asia are united with Zhejiang Shaoxing Municipal Government, Wuxi Research Institute of Fudan University and Zhijiang College of Zhejiang University having the below full week of BACnet learning and testing event in Zhejiang Shaoxing of China during Nov.12end-16th :

BACnet Plug-Fest

BACnet Plug-Fest, Nov. 14th to 16th. Training & Plug-Fest fee: RMB 8,000.00 per company (2 engineers max)

Notice: There will be a Plug-Fest introduction at the BACnet technology training, so all the engineers are expected to attend.
The Plug-Fest provides an opportunity for all participants to improve the interoperability of their products with those from other attending companies. Manufacturers are also able to test functionality of their BACnet implementation within a large BACnet network. You are free to choose with which BACnet controllers you test your own devices, this includes Honeywell, Siemens、Delta, Schneider Electric, PcVue, Johnson Controls.
The test is geared toward BACnet manufacturers. This test is not a conformance test and may only be used to improve your BACnet implementation.
