In the rapidly evolving landscape of technological advancement, the integration of next-generation networks into new constructions has become more than a luxury – it’s a necessity. As specialists in network infrastructure, we at Dominion Networks have repeatedly witnessed the pitfalls of overlooking technology consulting in the early stages of building and campus development.
retrofitting is difficult
Retrofitting a network after construction is not just a logistical challenge; it often comes with significant financial and operational setbacks. Imagine laying the foundation of a building only to realize later that the electrical wiring needs a complete overhaul to support modern appliances – that’s the scenario many face with network infrastructure in newly constructed buildings.
By engaging technology consultants from the outset, architects and developers can ensure that the infrastructure is not only adequate for today’s needs but is also scalable for future advancements. This foresight is particularly crucial in an era where technologies like IoT and 5G are becoming ubiquitous. Early engagement leads to smarter buildings, more efficient layouts, and a network that grows with your technological needs.
When you get technology planners to the table with architects early you not only stave off some problems down the road, but you also engage your IT staff early to help envision your technology roadmap for the future.
