Watch the video to learn how your building infrastructure will evolve.
Utility Grade INFRASTRUCTURE (UTG) is a new technology platform, assurance program and design approach that redefines the infrastructure layer to support building subsystems, technologies and applications.
Building technology is rapidly evolving to meet productivity and efficiency demands of building owners, managers and tenants alike. Essential to keeping up with this rate of technology change is an advanced infrastructure layer that supports seamless connectivity, building automation and control, as well as the convergence of IT and OT applications across a common platform.
A reliable and resilient network allows an organization to meet their smart building goals, whether that is attracting premium tenants, simplifying the management of multiple building systems, or enhancing collaboration and workforce productivity.
Who needs UTG?
UTG can help address different challenges and opportunities that drive decision-making for many stakeholders in commercial buildings.
Every network-enabled device requires connectivity, power and security. UTG provides a specable, interoperable and future-ready solution, ensuring these elements are addressed across all building systems. Foundational elements of UTG include:
Utility-Ready Structured Cabling
Core to the UTG program is offering new UTG-rated cabling solutions from world-class manufacturers. This will be available for project specification on July 15, 2019.
Advanced Power Delivery
UTG will address advanced power delivery through definite testing of UTG-rated cabling solutions. These UL verified solutions will include design recommendations and higher potential for bundling size to support more PoE applications.
As more devices come onto the network, the potential for cyber threats needs to be accounted for. Future phases of the UTG program will offer best practices and solutions that provide enhanced cyber protection for converged building applications.
