the internet ubiquitous digital communication
The Internet:Ubiquitous Digital Communication
  • Ethernet – 10, 100, 1000MB, 802.11 Wireless
  • TCP/IP – Universal addressing
  • Public network Free transport, universal access
  • Virtual Networks Security
  • Local Area Networks – leverage technology

digital advantages
Digital Advantages

Point to Everywhere (not point to point).

  • Access to all devices is available everywhere in the system.
  • Video can be viewed anywhere,
  • Announcements can be made anywhere,
  • Remote users can access the system,
  • Backup facilities only need a single data connection.

APTA, Kevin Hassett, September 24, 2002 10

Digital Advantages

Point to Everywhere (not point to point).

Routing

The Internet technology is all about efficient and redundant and reliable routing of data.

APTA, Kevin Hassett, September 24, 2002 11

digital advantages12
Digital Advantages

Point to Everywhere (not point to point).

Routing

Capacity

No need to dedicate ‘types’ of channels for specific devices.

All data paths are combined and shared dynamically.

Digital Advantages

Point to Everywhere (not point to point).

Routing

Capacity

Integration, Use of Software

Digital data can be archived on the same medium.

They can be coordinated (the video with the sound)

System Integrators can add value.

the rules
The RULES

1. Make everything digital as soon as possible and as often as possible:

At the outermost ends of the network. LED signs should have an Ethernet jack and IP address, Cameras should be Ethernet…

APTA, Kevin Hassett, September 24, 2002 17

the rules18
The RULES

2. Use ETHERNET, USE IP (TCP/IP)

APTA, Kevin Hassett, September 24, 2002 18

The RULES

3. USE Point-to-everywhere versus Point to point communications

APTA, Kevin Hassett, September 24, 2002 19

the rules20
The RULES

4. Use a System Integrator:

Use Software for Integration

You need MORE than an Electrical Contractor !
