As predicted by Tim Albright’s Forecasting Network Control Solutions and Microsoft’s Impact at InfoComm 2016 article, the race to the cloud as a control platform has begun.

The InfoComm show floor was filled with cloud-based systems, such as Pakedge‘s BakPak which uses a “fog+cloud” approach that features artificial intelligence to remotely scan, respond and react in real time to evolving network conditions.
