Ubiquitous Green Community Control Network Protocol
|Publication Date:||27 March 2014|
The standard identifies gateways for field-bus networks, data storage for archiving and developing data sharing platforms, and application units such as those providing user interfaces of analysis and for knowing that environmental information is an important system component for developing digital communities, i.e., building-scale and city-wide ubiquitous facility networking infrastructure. The standard defines a data exchange protocol that generalizes and interconnects these components (gateways, storage, application units) over the IPv4/v6-based networks. This opens the application interface to handle the statuses of multivendor facilities on a generalized digital infrastructure. The standard assumes distributed operation of the infrastructure by multiple service providers and integrators, and defines a component management protocol that autonomously interoperates such distributed infrastructure. Security requirements are taken into consideration in this standard to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of data.
The standard aims to develop green communities whose energy usage is well managed and highly efficient, by allowing the interconnection of facilities of multiple buildings including small and medium-sized on different converged networks, data sharing platforms, and application units. The products based on the standard implement the functions of sensing, archiving, sharing and presenting of ubiquitous information such as power usage and generation, environmental status and signals, human behavior, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) working status, lighting systems, weather, warnings, analyzed data, forecasted data, and so on. With the capability of interoperable integration of these system components, the standard aims to provide and share rich data platforms, including cooperation with control-oriented systems.
