Cisco Digital Building

Cisco's new digital building product allows purchasers to save on energy costs and enhance flexibility, safety, and productivity in their business.


A digital building combines innovations in smart Internet of Things (IoT) devices and sensors with Cisco power of ethernet (PoE) products, then the customer will add lighting which creates an initial layer of IP-connected (light) endpoints in the ceiling through zone cabling procedures. At the infrastructure level many partners with Cisco provide building automation technology, controls and equipment to integrate HVAC, communication, and security systems. Then the customer will need enablers like us at BPG Technologies to provide the essential cabling to converge the separate networks and support the power over ethernet system. Many software vendors can offer the customer additional software to further enhance and increase functionality of the digital building system.
