High-rise buildings are incredibly complicated structures. Many contain mixed-use programs and/or are located in multi-building complexes. They include large spaces; intricate fire detection, alarm and control functions; and difficult firefighting response and communication logistics. This can result in large amounts and types of data being transmitted and processed during an emergency event. Use of the building network is also an integral part of the technology-driven data exchange to efficiently provide ongoing management and operations of the building systems. In this presentation, thoughts on how smart "Big Data" can be used via the Internet-of-Things (IoT) to facilitate the application of intelligent building information for fire safety operations and management were discussed.
