Oleg Logvinov: “IoT – the key to unlocking the full potential of the EV charging infrastructure”

Recently published IEEE 2413-2019 – “IEEE Standard for an Architectural Framework for the Internet of Things” defines EV charging as one of the clear examples of IoT use cases. EV charging belongs to several vertical domains, among which include: Power Grid, Smart Cities, Smart Home, and Transportation. EV charging also brings together two enormous ecosystems that have never worked together before: Transportation and Power Grid. The multidomain nature of EV charging creates new data streams and relationships among various stakeholders. This is a fantastic opportunity to create new business models and opportunities powered by IoT. And of course, the security and reliability of communication based on ISO/IEC 15118 among stakeholders of the ecosystem is one of the greatest enablers of this opportunity.

Greg Fitzpatrick: "Fundamentals of designing an OT network to address cybersecurity to integration requirements"

The emergence of IoT, along with the need to move more data and run applications at the controller level, has forced controls manufacturers to introduce more IP devices to the marketplace. More and more end-users are taking advantage of analytics and edge applications to save energy and enhance the occupant experience. This trend has placed the responsibility of designing and specifying secure IP networks on the consulting engineer and the installation of these networks on the systems integrator. This presentation will walk you through the fundamentals of designing an OT network and address everything from cybersecurity to actual integration.

Kurt Twiford and Rusty Hennessey: "An overview of tag database standardization in building automation"

As the applications are becoming more complex, there is a need for developing guidelines to harmonize the tag naming conventions. Specify the communication protocol and ensure that the control system and communication protocols can integrate seamlessly with existing installations and be scalable for future expansions. We also need to verify that the system will allow communication (read only or read/write) with the inputs and outputs required in a project. The manufacturers may also make a set of tags available for the BAS with their solutions, which is compatible with other systems. This will streamline data transfer in a multi-vendor system.
