Skytower Brisbane

Brisbane Skytower is a landmark building under construction in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Located in Brisbane’s central business district, this iconic residential tower will become Brisbane’s tallest building when completed in 2018/2019.

As a role model for smart building, the Skytower takes advantage of the latest IoT technologies with the goal to be a more sustainable, secure and energy efficient than usual highrises.

Human-Centric & Intelligent 

Smart buildings are rapidly evolving to become more networked, human-centric and intelligent. The growing use of The Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and Big Data, enables seamless interoperability between building intelligence and information systems, changing the building industry and accelerating the development of smart buildings.

The network for smart buildings needs to keep pace with this new paradigm and be smart enough to connect people together, which needs to shift from simply providing telephone services to delivering all-round services such as Wi-Fi, and environmental awareness. It needs to tackle the following challenges:

The network for smart buildings needs to keep pace with this new paradigm and be smart enough to connect people together, which needs to shift from simply providing telephone services to delivering all-round services such as Wi-Fi, and environmental awareness. It needs to tackle the following challenges:

Higher bandwidth is needed: A growing number of smart devices such as smartphones, 4K Internet TV are being used in buildings. Buildings are adopting more building control, energy management, and sensing equipment. All these bandwidth-intensive applications place increased pressure on overburdened networks. 

Ubiquitous network access is required: Occupants now expect anytime, anywhere access to applications and services in rooms, elevators, underground parking garages, etc. Property management owners also need a simpler, faster-to-deploy, and easier-to-manage network to reduce costs while improving efficiency.

These challenges were primary considerations for Billbergia Group, Skytower’s property management company. The Group wanted a technology provider that could provide a comprehensive smart building solution.

 

Solution

 

Build Deploying a Smart Network

 

Billbergia Group approved Honeywell’s proposed technology solution integrated with Huawei’s POL solution, delivering a complete smart building solution.

Honeywell will provide Skytower with its Enterprise Buildings Integrator, a building automation system that takes charge of system integration, covering the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning, security protection facilities, etc. Additionally, Honeywell will centrally manage various building sub-systems, provide a visualized management portal and alarm management and work-order management services, designed to deliver efficient facility management, fast response, and predictive maintenance.

Huawei is the ideal ICT vendor to deliver the gigabit network and provides a POL solution to achieve smart network inside the Skytower. In contrast to a traditional complex LAN which limits the performance of bandwidth-intensive applications, using POL technology, an enterprise can combine data, voice, video, and other weak-current systems into one optical network.

Prominent features include high bandwidth, high reliability, comprehensive security authentication, easy deployment, and Wi-Fi coverage.

As part of the POL solution, Huawei’s network management system U2000, OLT (MA5608T), ONU (MA5626, M5671, and MA5620), and ONT (HG8242H) are included to unlock the passive network’s full potential.

 

benefits 

Our POL solution makes the following possible in the Skytower

 

The building automation system shares the same network with triple-play services, eliminating the need to build standalone networks.

One single fiber bears all services, simplifying cabling and dramatically reducing Capital Expenditure.

Passive splitters take place of switches in the middle layer without the need of powering and cooling, which greatly saves riser space.

Smooth evolution to 10G PON while reusing existing cables for maximal investment protection.

The U2000 centrally monitors the faults and alarms of all network equipment and provide added visibility to end-to-end service rollout.
