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.
A pilot project to access Smart Building technology ran for one fiscal year to gather data and recommendations.
The Cisco DNA Spaces project will implement one of the recommendations from the Cisco Smart Occupancy Pilot project. Cisco wireless network (approx. 4000 APs) combined with the Cisco DNA Spaces platform provide visibility into how, when and where people move throughout the campus. This service can provide occupancy and user density analytics based on location data collected from the WiFi network. The project will provide foundation for delivering contextual engagements that are valuable and relevant. This also helps drive operational efficiencies by monitoring the location, movement, and utilization of assets.
