Continuum and SmartStruxure Bacnet and NAT (Network Address Translation)

Issue

Many sites use NAT for security purposes so question are asked if it is supported

Product Line

Andover Continuum, SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

Continuum

SmartStruxure

Bacnet

BBMD

NAT

Cause

There is a need to know if Continuum and/or SmartStruxure Bacnet support NAT

Resolution

We currently do not support NAT traversal in our BBMD implementations (Continuum or SmartStruxure). It is an optional feature we have not implemented. Request to add this feature should be directed to Product Marketing to include on the backlog for prioritization.
