Your IP Infrastructure Company

Network System Integrator

Digital Building / Intelligent Building

Discover the power of bringing everything under one roof onto one network—converging previously standalone systems like physical security, audio/visual, lighting, and building automation systems (BAS) as part of a single, centralized IP platform. Integrating these technologies and pieces of equipment enables you to predict faults early, monitor system performance in real time, and get insights into how you are using your space now and how you can use it better in future.

Despite all of the opportunities the Digital Building brings, convergence has traditionally been the biggest barrier due largely to the sheer complexity. This is why you need a network systems integrator like Activo in your side. We possess in-depth expertise across a range of service offerings—from networking and wireless to infrastructure cabling to voice and collaboration and more—and provide full lifecycle support including consulting, designing, building, and ongoing maintenance.

We partner with industry titans like Cisco and have worked with organizations from coast to coast, public and private, to help them accelerate their digital building transformations.

Digital Building / Intelligent Building Key Considerations

Do I need digital building solutions?

The reality is that as the buildings we live and work in become increasingly filled with sub-systems and networks like IP cameras, access control, communication and collaboration tools, audio/visual solutions, and more, the advantages of connecting them as part of one integrated network will simply enable you to get more out of the individual elements and the system as a whole.

What benefits does the digital building bring?

Although infrastructure investments are required to get you there, the returns from transitioning to the digital building are significant:

  • Reduce energy consumption by using resources more intelligently, adjusting lighting and temperature based on outside conditions and to suit individual preferences.
  • Encourage seamless collaboration by empowering people to use space in dynamic and fluid ways.
  • Enable analytics to understand real-time traffic patterns, occupancy rates, and more.

What is Power over Ethernet (PoE), and what role does it play in the Digital Building?

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that enables Ethernet cables to carry both data and power. In the context of the digital building, taking advantage of PoE technologies will allow for smarter uses of resources and increased efficiencies.

What is LiFi?

LiFi is an emerging technology with a wealth of promise for the future of digital buildings. It stands for ‘light fidelity’ and has the potential to use LEDs to transmit wireless signals and data.
