Having a large and diverse portfolio and working with a range of systems and vendors, each with its own set of processes, means that it can be difficult for large property managers to consistently record and catalog every device connected to their buildings.
Oxford Properties wanted visibility of every system and device connected to its networks across its office and retail sites in Canada. Oxford is leading the way in Canada with its robust digital facilities management plans, and it understands that having each building fully connected is the
first, a crucial step in that journey.
Oxford Properties Group
Oxford Properties Group is the owner, developer, and manager of some of the world’s top real estate assets. Oxford’s portfolio encompasses 100 million square feet of office, retail, industrial, hotel, and multifamily residential space across four continents. Oxford uses the Switch Automation Platform to help enhance its existing building operations by connecting to systems and data to provide real-time visibility into building performance and implement data-driven optimization strategies. Oxford deployed Switch Dx³ across 17 buildings connected to the Switch Platform to gain a continuous audit of the devices and systems connected to its building networks.
In addition to using Switch’s building analytics, Oxford Properties deployed Switch Dx³ to scan building systems, sensors, and devices to continuously assess connectivity, control network integrity, and readiness for real-time data collection and performance optimization. Switch Dx³ provides an immediate digital audit of connected building systems and devices via the Switch Dx³ Dashboard, which displays connected devices and data points on the building controls network, MAC addresses, firmware versions, and device models, and manufacturers. It also highlights potential vulnerabilities. Switch IoT appliances are securely hosted on Azure.
