MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Based on its recent analysis of the building automation system (BAS) controls industry, Frost & Sullivan has recognized Johnson Controls Inc. with the 2009 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Leadership of the Year. According to Frost & Sullivan, the company's flagship Metasys® building management system provides customers with a set of comprehensive tools to improve building efficiency, maximize cost savings, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“Johnson Controls also offers a complete line of integrated controllers and equipment for lighting, fire and life safety, physical security, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC),” noted Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Jorge Moreno. “A unified approach to encompass HVAC and lighting and access controllers enables facilities to integrate and easily adapt to ever changing operational scenarios, as well as add third-party vendor systems.”

Frost & Sullivan said Metasys’ comprehensive line of system integration solutions provides interoperability between supervisory controllers, workstations, and islands of automation from diverse manufacturers communicating over proprietary protocols. The system is also fully compatible with the Internet Protocol (IP), facilitating the sharing of the enterprise IT infrastructure.

“Johnson Controls continues to be at the forefront of propagating a universal BACnet platform, providing customers with a unified infrastructure,” continued Moreno. “In addition, the integration between its BAS and a wireless communications backbone helps Johnson Controls deliver and drive a more cost-effective, complete building information management system to a facilities department.”

Moreno concluded, “Outstanding expertise in customer care coupled with the ability to combine technology and successful marketing has benefited Johnson Controls in its quest for market leadership within the BAS industry. The company is strongly committed to customer satisfaction and technological innovation with a strong focus on service offerings along different facility verticals, such as health care, pharmaceuticals, commercial, education, office, and the government.”
