Today’s Demand for Innovations Require All Buildouts to be Wired Properly


The way we live, work, learn and play is always evolving — and the buildings where this happens should too.


As rapid adoption of smart technologies change our world, the importance of facilitating data transmission and connectivity will only accelerate. What most people don’t understand, however, is the importance of cabling.


For example, many companies waste thousands of extra dollars for faster internet speeds that simply cannot be used because their existing cabling can’t handle the data transfer. But today, the challenges go far beyond internet. Everything needs a cable — from the smoke detectors, digital signage to cable TV, security and temperature settings — and if wired improperly, data wont stream properly. A data cable placed improperly next to an electrical cable may cause interference.


Are you building to specs that can deliver against tenants’ increasingly complex internet and connectivity demands? Are you confident that your buildout will be able to evolve with technology not just today, but years from now?

As our friends at The Siemon Company explain, Intelligent buildings are the future of sustainability and operational efficiency, made possible by the integration of low-voltage applications.

To support this integration, Wi-Fi, AV, security, PoE lighting, and next-gen building automation systems are converging over IP-based platforms with endpoint devices powered over Structured Cabling.

The result is a robust, scalable standards-compliant infrastructure that will support your digital needs as technology evolves.

·        Lower CapEx Spending

·        Lower Power Deployment Costs

·        Simplified Decision Making and Control

·        Lower OpEx Spending

·        Enhanced Occupant Experience

·        Sustainability Digital Life

Voice and video that work are just table stakes. Your 21st Century AV provider will also help deliver you an IT backbone that can run multiple building systems while being completely flexible. PoE, security and more can be predictably run from this backbone, giving you a more cost-effective way to consolidate technology in structures you finance, build or operate.


Encompass AV provides building owners and operators a value-added alternative to the traditional approach of deploying disparate low-voltage systems that are designed and managed in separate silos — and it all adds up to a big win for developers, owners GCs and architects: Reduced project risk and capital expenditures on the front end, reduced TCO and delighted tenants on the back end.​


For people who finance, build and run commercial structures, Encompass AV is like an insurance policy for your IT and AV with reliable Structured Cabling that supports all converged low-voltage applications – both today and tomorrow – delivering optimum sustainability and savings over the life of the building.
