The future of enterprise networks is IP convergence where signal transmission for networking, A/V, and building management and security systems are merged over one common infrastructure using common protocols rather than deploying separate closed, proprietary solutions. Enterprises face many challenges as they embark on deploying IP convergence, and most are just starting down the path. Throughout the next decade, enterprise networks will therefore continue to contain various cabling media, requiring performance, service and support across all building operating systems while ensuring the scalability, low risk, and seamless integration needed to eventually deploy full IP convergence.
