Siemon’s Dynamic Infrastructure Forum examines the future of the connected world

The half-day event took place at the prestigious Urban Innovation Centre in London – a purpose built venue designed for businesses, academics and industry leaders to develop the cities of the future.Many top level delegates attended the Dynamic Infrastructure Forum to hear about the ideas and technologies that are making next generation buildings a reality. With an ever increasing range of Internet protocol (IP) enabled applications now available including security, VoIP, lighting, audio visual, digital signage and HVAC, the immediate challenge is to understand how best to design and implement the right solutions for organisations of all kinds.Network infrastructures play a vital role in making this happen and in his presentation Lee Funnell, EMEA technical manager at Siemon, examined how the increase in connected devices is fuelling the growth of intelligent buildings that integrate technology and processes to create facilities that are safer, more comfortable and productive for occupants, and more operationally efficient for owners. Drawing on Siemon’s ConvergeIT expertise, he went on to discuss how cutting edge structured cabling solutions are facilitating an ever-increasing portfolio of IP PoE-enabled applications.‘We are delighted with the response to the Dynamic Infrastructure Forum, which highlighted the clear interest there is in intelligent buildings and converged infrastructures,’ concluded Daniel Vout, Siemon’s sales and marketing manager EMEA. ‘As a company, we have been at the forefront in providing cabling systems that provide a scalable foundation to enable convergence of a building’s systems onto a common IP platform. We are currently planning another Dynamic Infrastructure Forum for 2016, which will provide another opportunity to find out more about this exciting and fast moving trend.’
