Routing and switching expert Sudhanshu Gupta:
The most important routing and switching trend IT networking pros should ask about in 2010 is "How can I find the ways and means to provide unified physical infrastructure to my enterprise network?" Routing a unified network infrastructure will require you to provide transport for data, voice, and video over wired and wireless networks. IT professionals should also plan to have enough space for newer applications like RFID, physical security and intelligent building management systems, in their unified business network.

Another question that will pose a challenge to network designers and architects will be "How will I green networks and datacenters while keeping service levels the same?"
