The BACnet standard is constantly evolving. Most available tools have not kept up with this progression, leaving building automation solution providers and smart building OEMs constrained. There is a lack of reliable tools to establish BACnet communication within their product offerings.
What’s more, most interoperability testing occurs in the BACnet test lab at the time of certification or directly during field deployment. Because of this environment, BACnet building automation and smart building OEMs spend a significant amount of time and expense in troubleshooting BACnet integration into their devices and applications for market readiness.
SoftDEL’s BOSS (BACnet/IP Simulation System) has the ability to simulate large networks with various devices and objects.
BOSS effectively simulates BACnet functionalities and checks interoperability by simultaneous simulation of multiple virtual device, property and service configurations.
BOSS’s easy-to-use interface allows developers and systems integrators to configure, monitor and issue service commands to accessible physical and virtual devices on the BACnet network.
BOSS also provides BBMD, FD and transaction-log functionalities
CREATE virtual devices
DISCOVER and BROWSE
GENERATE service commands
MONITOR object property values
