BOSTON, MA — The BACnet Manufacturers Association (BMA) recently held the first BACnet interoperability workshop at the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST’s) building and fire research laboratory in Gaithersburg, MD. The workshop was designed to provide an opportunity for member companies to test products for interoperability. In addition, the BMA collected valuable data that will be incorporated into its product development and testing procedures, as well as listing requirements.

“The interoperability tests were very successful,” said Jim Lee, president of BMA. “This success further deomonstrates the viability of BACnet for daily operation in a multi-vendor environment.”
