Cisco DNA Spaces

A “Smart Building” integrates major building systems on a common network and shares information and functionality between systems to improve energy efficiency, operational effectiveness, and occupant satisfaction.

An initial pilot project ran for one year, so that a full year of seasonal (weather) and people occupancy data can be analyzed and used to understand the opportunities, feasibility and usefulness of this technology at McMaster University. Recommendations from this pilot identified the need for the Cisco DNA Spaces project initiative.
