A Smart Building Starts with an Intelligent Riser

Vital Roles: Network Manager

The path to a Smart Building starts with a robust building network and a company to manage it. Intelligent Riser, a division of Montgomery Technologies, designs and installs enterprise-class, cybersecure networks dedicated to building systems - the critical first step required to successfully enable Smart Building technology. Intelligent Riser provides quantifiable capex and opex savings, and our Network Operations Center (NOC) monitors and manages the network 24x7x365, ensuring building systems remain cybersecure with 99.999% uptime. Intelligent Riser is installed in hundreds of office buildings nationwide and is the most installed building systems network in the world.

Company bio

Intelligent Riser is a division of Montgomery Technologies, a leading professional services firm specializing in the integration of technology and commercial real estate. Increasing numbers of fiber runs and connection requests in the same building made us realize the need for a single, secure, asset-specific, cost-effective, managed network. While many clients developed best practices and security standards for their corporate networks, they were less familiar with building networks, a core strength of Montgomery Technologies.

Intelligent Riser was created in 2010 to serve the base building network needs of high-rise commercial office owners and managers. Driven by smart technologies, regulatory requirements and changing tenant expectations, they worked closely with long-time clients to develop the Intelligent Riser network. They have been responding to high demand ever since. Today, Intelligent Riser is the most secure, most installed base building systems network in the U.S.

"Intelligent Riser provides excellent, end-to-end service. They worked with us to address concerns and created a solution with capex and opex savings that helped align our organization behind it. I have peace of mind that the building systems are now monitored and maintained by professionals 24x7x365. Perhaps most importantly, they proactively communicate issues before we know they exist!"

James Dice

Building owners have many opportunities to decarbonize their own buildings to meet their carbon targets, but sometimes their money can be better spent decarbonizing other people’s buildings. That’s WattCarbon’s thesis, and one we believe in too. So much so that we (along with dozens of you) invested in their seed round last year.

Invite: The Buyer’s Guide to Controls Software [Marketplace #10]

James Dice

The software operating commercial buildings hasn't changed much since before I was born. The first Building Automation Systems came about in the 1980s, with the ability to schedule equipment operation, create setpoints, and program sequences of operations. They could also store data (“trends”), display that data on a graphic, and alert operators to alarming readings (“alarms”).
