Critical Facilities Monitoring System for Bank of America



In 2002, Affinity Energy was hired to implement a new Critical Facilities Monitoring System (CFMS) for Bank of America that would provide real-time monitoring and issue response in eight of the bank’s critical spaces. The 8-month project has since expanded to include 17 buildings, 1,160 device units and 113 different device types, resulting in a 600 percent increase in efficiency and saving significant manpower, overtime, and labor costs. Attend this session to learn how Affinity Energy created an architecture that translates differing protocols back to a common one that addresses the system’s device diversity challenge and avoids alarm page ‘storms’ while still providing a fast response time.


Learning Objectives:
1. Understand how and why alarming is applicable to all critical monitoring systems, from data centers to medical campus central utility plants 
2. Review ways in which non-customized communications architecture and alarm configuration can contribute to exess alarming
3. Learn how to collect and integrate data from devices with different manufacturers for a homogeneous comprehensive monitoring solution
4. Determine how alarming can reduce labor and disaster recovery costs, increase efficiency, and grow facility visibility
