|Designing and Building with AoIP||5|
In this chapter, we progress boldly from the lab to the real world. That means starting with the nitty-gritty nuts-and-bolts of cabling, connectors, and the like. Just as with analog audio, that might be all you need to know to get on with doing a simple AoIP setup. Grab a bag of ready-made RJ cables, get the plugs in the right sockets, do a bit of configuration—and go to lunch.
But building a large system involves making big-picture architecture design choices. Since AoIP is built on general data networking, you have the full range of possibilities from that world open to you in the design of your AoIP facilities. You already know much from the previous chapters, but here we'll show you some ...
