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.
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
