infrastructure is the strongest future-proof option for any
Cook points out that the commercial rental market applications are endless, including digital electricity, enabling
remote power capability, and Small Cell - which is "really
starting to take off in commercial space and in mixed use
Bateman adds, "the way we design and integrate multiple complex systems like Wi-Fi, small cell, access control,
security, digital signage, and other IP-based technologies
over a converged Passive Optical Network differentiates us
from our competitors."
While short-term occupancy goals are important, landlords, brokers, building managers and commercial real estate
investors with long term vision should be up to speed with
Bateman's top three in-building technology outcomes: interoperability, integration and convergence. Why? Because
your commercial, healthcare, legal, and other corporate and
professional services tenants care about this.
PROOF OF BUSINESS IoT -
CLIENT SUCCESS STORIES
One recent IoT installation for Sinclair Holdings, a Fort
Worth, TX commercial real estate investment and property
management company, involved simplifying network connectivity, powering and management of sophisticated digital
ceiling, voice, video, data, Wi-Fi, lighting and control and
automation (with a single Passive Optical LAN system).
As with every client, VT Group assessed Sinclair Holdings' current and future needs, "designing and delivering a
solution that reduced the construction impact, and saved
power. And the building's staff, tenants and hotel guests
now enjoy the best connectivity experience available."
For hotels, conference centers, public spaces and small
commercial clients alike, the 20 kilometer reach (without
the need for active electronics) makes this Passive Optical
LAN design have "300x better reach than traditional copper-based LANs."
The positive ripple effect of this design - which eliminated the need for multiple telecommunications rooms -
resulted in less building power energy use and an increase
in revenue-generating square footage. In terms of Sinclair
Holdings, it also resulted in the ability to connect multiple
multi-use buildings via one centralized location. So one
main data center had an exciting benefit, serving the iconic
16 story Sinclair Building, as well as the 8-story STS Tower and the 13-story Hotel Texas.
