Niagara LondonApril 2015 - System integrators and others interested in solutions that simplify the integration to BACnet/IP had an opportunity to see and learn first-hand, during the Niagara Forum in London, our BASautomation® products that do just that - simplify the integration to BACnet/IP. These products include:
