Project Overview

QuadReal Property Group sought to improve their foundational digital connectivity infrastructure which would allow them to enable various smart building use cases. Successfully implemented, these use cases would improve operational efficiency, and enhance services provided to the tenants and customers, differentiating their properties in the market. 

The Digital Innovation team at QuadReal engaged Andorix to deploy a converged network built upon Passive Optical Network (PON) technology in buildings across North America.

Project Scope

Utilizing primarily “passive” networking equipment that uses light instead of electrical signals, the PON infrastructure satisfied the requirement for a long life-span solution, that would consume less energy and be more economically viable than traditional networking solutions.

By connecting all building systems at the property (HVAC, lighting, access control, video surveillance, energy metering, elevators, and Wi-Fi), Andorix created a converged and secure digital infrastructure that enables data & system integration to serve all of QuadReal’s smart building needs.

Highlights of the Andorix Managed PON Solution at QuadReal
• Energy savings of 70% versus the traditional networking solutions

• Led to approximately 65% space savings within the building Risers

• Service costs were between 50-70% lower (building dependent)

• Cost savings of 65% compared to traditional networking solutions

• Reduces energy usage and is sustainable

• Lifespan that can exceed 20 years

Why It's Important

Converged networks are the foundation of smart and sustainable buildings. They bring together diverse systems, facilitate real-time data collection and analysis, enhance scalability and flexibility, and ensure security. By embracing converged networks, building owners and operators can unlock the full potential of smart building technologies, creating environments that are more energy-efficient, cost-effective, and comfortable for occupants. The adoption of a Converged Networking System has become imperative for modern buildings looking to stay ahead in the ever-changing world of smart technology.

The Future

Andorix continues to deploy PON networks in QuadReal buildings across North America and have begun to expand into multi-asset classes.
