This whitepaper authored by Panduit Corp. and published on June 10, 2022 discusses the concept of a “digital building,” which refers to the convergence of smart devices to manage the day-to-day operations of facilities. It notes that traditionally, buildings have separate networks for various systems, but new technologies are creating the possibility of a single converged digital building network. Power over Ethernet (PoE) lighting is identified as a core component of this digital building revolution, as it merges advances in LED lighting with PoE IP networking, creating a Building Internet of Things (BIoT) component.
