Everything On The Network

Like it or not, AV and IT increasingly share the same network. For AV pros, that's both a problem and an opportunity.

One potential drawback to subnets — and the convergence trend in general — is that it places all of the eggs in one basket. If the network goes down, so do the AV sessions running over it. That concern is one reason why some IT departments are reluctant to put everything on a single network. “It's a basic fear of the AV overlay,” says Polycom's Smith. “They don't know what's in it. They're afraid of the technology. They don't want it on their network. It's more about fear than about reality.”
