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.
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, we worked closely with long-time clients to develop the Intelligent Riser network. We 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.
Today’s newsletter is a collaboration between Nexus Labs and our newest creator, Drew DePriest, Senior Director of Digital Facilities Management at CBRE. Drew and I are among the select few invited to speak at most smart buildings conferences.
"You can't just sell the data. It's got enormous value, but it needs to be manifested and taught in such a way that people can react to it." Episode 140 is a conversation with Bayron Lopez Pineda, Director of OT Operational Technology at Kilroy Realty and Mike Moran, Chief Markets Officer and Chief Risk & Sustainability Officer at MicroShare. We talked about Killroy Realty's Smart Buildings Program and got into the weeds on how they're thinking about occupancy data and leak detection, which are two topics we've discussed on the podcast, but not in detail.
Episode 139 is a conversation with Joe Aamidor of Aamidor Consulting and Jeanne Casey of Nuveen. If you add me in, you get J³. This is the fourth installment of our M&A Roundup series, recorded in February 2023 all about what's happening in the marketplace right now. We unpacked the most interesting recent mergers and acquisitions in the smart buildings industry and dove into why, our reaction to them, and other trends they’re related to.
