month, CommScope participated in the Build Eco Xpo (BEX)
Asia event held at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
BEX Asia is a global business sourcing,
networking and knowledge-sharing platform for the sustainable built environment in Southeast Asia that saw more
than 350 companies from around the world showcasing their latest green products
and technologies to more than 10,000 building professionals from the region.
the event, I delivered a presentation about how connected devices and new
sources of Internet-connected data collection proliferate across consumer and industrial
technologies of today. I also discussed how lighting networks are becoming part
of the fabric of the Internet
of Things and how real-time occupancy and environmental data are being
mashed up to drive energy usage down, maximize space utilization, improve
security and deliver truly occupant-responsive buildings.
Singapore is aiming to improve up to 80 percent of its built-up area with more
eco-friendly technology by 2030; it is currently at the 25 percent mark. To
meet this target, the government has increased its efforts with recent
initiatives to provide S$50 million in incentives for green building
technologies and another S$50 million to target clustering of energy efficiency
in the country. It is an exciting time for
developing efficient technologies such as CommScope’s
intelligent lighting network solution.
intelligent lighting network solution is a technology that demonstrates
an integrated approach towards building management and sustainability. Besides bringing in cost-effective low voltage
LED lighting throughout a facility, it can provide powerful data to the
customer. The very small and very smart Redwood sensors capture data everywhere
in the building relating to occupancy, temperature and light levels. The data
can be used to make better operational decisions that enable savings on energy,
lighting, cooling and IT equipment. More importantly, customers will be able to
better understand when, where and how their space is being used so they can
optimize their real estate portfolio. Lighting is a great way to provide data
and intelligence about a building because it is nearly everywhere in a
The future looks bright for Asia as it
exhibits a strong commitment to becoming a leader in making smart and
sustainable technology a core part of its built environment.
you attended BEX Asia, let me know your thoughts about the event and feel free
to ask questions about CommScope’s Redwood intelligent lighting network solution
and other benefits to intelligent lighting in the comment section below and I
will be sure to respond.
