Hello, I am IT integrator for a Hotel. I am looking to add 16 Wired IP speakers to our network and
have the Sonos system hopefully control them.

Does anyone know how I would integrate IP speakers that use our existing Ethernet Wiring in
the Hotel and the Sonos system?

Regards,

Richard

if your existing ethernet wiring consists of a bunch of cat5 running to one switch on one network, then your setup is very easy.. buy 16 speakers and plug them all in

I'm not sure what you are asking. The SONOS controllers can only control SONOS products on the same subnet as the machine hosting the controller.

Yes my setup is easy like that, I was just wondering if Sonos can work with any IP speakers?

NO, the sonos controller will only control sonos equipment.
