I wouldn’t combine anything on the same VLAN as audio control or audio routing. It’s a recipe for disaster. I’d also make sure the QoS is configured correctly on your network to ensure things don’t get messed up. Audio needs to be very high in the list of network priorities. Latency is your enemy. That can be a risk, depending what else you’re running on your network and the capacity of your switches. I’d also have audio isolated from the rest of your DHCP infrastructure too. The last thing you need is a misconfigured PC on your network killing your iLive. If you’re using real Cisco gear (not the domestic Linksys rebranded stuff), your network person should be able to determine the best setup for you.

What advantage are you looking for from integrating your audio control network into your existing infrastructure?
