EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
2.1 RESEARCH SCOPE
2.2 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
2.3 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY EXPLAINED
2.4 KEY FINDINGS
OVERVIEW OF BUILDING AUTOMATION OPEN COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS
3.1 OPEN COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS IMPROVE THE INTEROPERABILITY BETWEEN DEVICES CONNECTED IN BASs
3.2 SCALABILITY, INTEROPERABILITY, FLEXIBILITY, AND BETTER INTEGRATION OPTIONS ARE FEW ADVANTAGES OF OPEN COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS
3.3 EACH PROTOCOLS HAS ITS OWN ADVANTAGES AND COMMUNICATION REQUIREMENTS, AND CAN BE SEEN IN DIFFERENT LEVELS OF BAS HIERARCHIES
3.4 COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS CAN BE CHOSEN BASED ON THE REGIONAL OR GOVERNMENT REGULATION STANDARDS AND IT IS DIFFERENT FOR EACH
KEY DRIVERS AND CHALLENGES
4.1 INCREASING DEMAND FOR STANDARDIZED COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY DRIVER FOR OPEN COMMUNICATION STANDARDS HOWEVER SECURITY IS A CONCERN
ROLE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES IN THE BAS SPACE
5.1 DIGITALIZATION PAVES WAY TO NEW COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS AND EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES IN BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEMS
5.2 5G AND WI-FI-6 ARE LIKELY TO HAVE GREATER IMPACT ON CONNECTIVITY OF BUILDING TECHNOLOGIES AND LIKELY TO ACCELERATE THE GROWTH OF IoT
5.3 CONVERGENCE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES WILL CONTINUE TO DISRUPT THE DYNAMICS OF BASS, CHANGING TO SMARTER AND OPTIMIZED INFRASTRUCTURE
EMERGENCE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN BAS – IMPACT ASSESSMENT
6.1 AI CAN COMPOSE ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS AND CAN PROVIDE SMARTER AUTOMATION FROM UNSTRUCTURED DATA GENERATED BY IoT DEVICES
6.2 AI IMPROVES OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY, LOWER COST IN BAS; PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE AND ENERGY OPTIMIZATION ARE FEW KEY APPLICATIONS
6.3 CURRENTLY AVAILABLE SOLUTIONS SHOW THAT AI CAN BE INTEGRATED TO THE EXISTING BASS WITHOUT ANY INFRASTRUCTURE CHANGES
RECENT KEY INNOVATIONS AND TRENDS AROUND BUILDING AUTOMATION
7.1 INDUSTRY LEADERS ARE FORGING PARTNERSHIPS TO BOOST AI ADOPTION, MOST OF THESE EFFORTS ARE ON FACILITY AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT APPLICATIONS
7.2 INCREASING FOCUS ON IP-BASED COMMUNICATION STANDARDS TO ENHANCE DEVICE COMPATIBILITY ACROSS BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEMS
COMPANIES TO ACTION
8.1 BIDGELY
8.2 ZAN COMPUTE
8.3 CITYZENITH
8.4 SIGFOX
8.5 TEMPERED NETWORKS
GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES AND STRATEGIC RECOMMENDATIONS
9.1 GROWTH OPPORTUNITY 1: MOVEMENT TOWARD IP-BASED AND LOW POWER COMMUNICATION STANDARDS TO IMPROVE INTEROPERABILITY NEEDS

9.2 GROWTH OPPORTUNITY 2: CONVERGENCE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES TO THE PORTFOLIO THROUGH STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS FOR INCREASING COMPETENCY
