IoT: The New Convergence and the Challenges It Brings

IoT: The New Convergence and the Challenges It Brings Webinar

In this webinar:

The next wave of convergence – the Internet of Things (IoT) – is set to capitalize on the Internet. Billions of previously disparate, unconnected devices are moving to our networks and communicating directly without any human interaction or intervention. By 2020, Gartner estimates that at least 20.8 billion IP-enabled devices will be connected to networks. To support and manage the signal transmission required to make IoT a reality, a common communications infrastructure is necessary.

In this webcast, learn how organizations of all types are using IoT to take a new approach to sharing information, communicating, delivering high-quality AV, ensuring life safety and improving building management. We’ll discuss the impacts of IoT on networks and data centers, as well as the infrastructure required to support an increasing number of IP devices. We’ll also uncover common deployment challenges – and how to avoid them.
