ZUG, Switzerland, Oct 3, 2022 – Siemens Smart Infrastructure has unveiled the latest version of Desigo CC, its integrated building management platform for the digitalization of buildings of any size. With the software update, Desigo CC V6 offers native cloud connectivity, an improved user experience and is among the first building management platforms worldwide to fulfill the BACnet B-XAWS profile for cross-domain advanced workstation and BACnet Secure Connect.
Native cloud connectivity to Building X
Desigo CC now connects to the recently launched Building X, Siemens’ cloud-based open platform and AI-enabled suite of applications. Building operators can now monitor and manage multiple Desigo CC sites with the Building X Operations Manager cloud application. With 24/7 access to cloud-connected buildings from anywhere, unnecessary physical site visits are reduced and response times are improved. Using the Operations Manager, operators now have the ability to securely connect to Flex Client, the HTML5 client application, without a complex VPN setup. This functionality can be enabled in countries in which Building X is currently available.
Developed, operated and maintained with cybersecurity in mind, Desigo CC meets the highest protection requirements, adding support for additional IEC 62443-3-3 SL2 scenarios. It also allows for adaptation to customers’ advanced IT infrastructure, offering improved user management and increased password security.
Advanced user experience
Along with a state-of-the-art user interface, the Desigo CC Flex Client receives additional software features to enhance the user experience with a focus on building automation operators. Highlights include Log Viewer for easy and efficient log data analysis; Flex Client Report Viewer to generate, view and download reports, and the ability to manage recipients and groups with the new application for notifications.
These enhancements make end-users’ daily operations more intuitive and efficient, and enables seamless site operation whether on-premise or in hybrid deployments.
For the integration of different subsystems, Desigo CC supports the manufacturer-independent BACnet standard, to monitor and control all subsystems with one common BMS. Desigo CC is among the first building management platforms certified with a cross-domain profile B‑XAWS 1.16. Desigo CC supports the profiles B‑AWS, B‑ALWS, B‑ACCWS, and profile B‑XAWS, as well as the BACnet/SC protocol. It enables the encryption of data traffic based on certificates, ensuring a secure connection between all BACnet devices.
With a modular design, Desigo CC has the flexibility across different disciplines to adapt to buildings and projects of any size. Engineer-friendly functions, workflows and migration tools also allow for the optimization of engineering costs, and simplification of migration projects.
Desigo CC V6 will be shown for the first time at Light + Building 2022, in Frankfurt, Germany, October 2-6. Visit us in Hall 11.0, B56, and read more about the Siemens presence at the show, here.
