Industry Description

In the future, a virtual system architect may be a specialist capable of planning for all dynamic aspects of every home network installation.  This might be similar to the work that traditional architects are entrusted with, that is to plan not only the physical aspects of construction but also for every other aspect of the construction environment.  This includes zoning codes, soil and groundwater analyses, environmental hazards, and operational analyses.

So, a virtual system architect may also be involved with the “macro” environment.  All of the basic concepts like design, configuration, consulting, assembly, installation, and testing will have been considered.  Virtual system architects will be asked to go beyond these basics and to anticipate how the home network will be used and what the full range of expected capabilities will be.

Here is an example.  A traditional architect must understand sources of interference that would affect wireless features in the home.  A virtual system architect must understand how to cope with the dynamic nature of such interference, minimize such problems, provide for a cable backup alternative, and plan for recognizing the interference when present, measuring required field strength to overcome the interference, and how and when to switch to the backup without adversely affecting systems performance.
