Building automation OEMs are constrained by a lack of comprehensive, certified tools to establish BACnet communication within their product offerings.
BACnet application development requires a physical interface with BACnet devices to test applications in real-time. Field-testing is expensive and time consuming. Hence, interoperability and testing often occur only in the BACnet test lab at the time of certification. As a result OEMs spend a significant amount of time and incur greater expense to correct defects identified at the testing stage.
Softdel’s BACnet Simulator (BOSS) simulates a network of virtual BACnet devices, properties and service configurations, without the need for physical devices. It provides a comprehensive ability to effectively troubleshoot BACnet functionality and interoperability, without conducting field tests. Its easy-to-use interface allows developers and systems integrators to configure, monitor and issue service commands to accessible physical or virtual devices on the BACnet network.
Using the BACnet Simulator OEMs can test applications virtually and fix any issues noticed, before sending the device for testing.
