The Internet of Things (IoT) is the new buzz phrase coming at us from every direction. It speaks to device connectivity and control as if it were new but the ability to connect devices has a long history in pro AV. The proliferation of IoT devices expands upon that. The “secret” in IoT is not the devices but the underlying networking and data technologies involved. In this course we will explore IPv6, wireless networking, Power over Ethernet (POE), and industry standards that are the key to seamless connectivity and communication. We will also discuss the all-important topic of security and the growing partnership between pro AV and IT professionals working hand in hand on a project.
