Avnu Certification of Cisco Catalyst Series Switches Expands Options for AVB/TSN Solutions

Biamp says that its Tesira customers will have more AVB-capable switches to choose from when designing and installing AVB/TSN systems. The Cisco Catalyst family of switches includes the AVB-enabled 9300 and 9500 Series and the recently Avnu-certified 3650 and 3850 Series of switches. Avnu certification confirms interoperability for AVB systems using Catalyst switches.

Cisco Catalyst switches are built to enable digitization of audio-video across multiple layers in the network for what Cisco says are immersive, reliable and cost-effective AV solutions. The Catalyst switches introduced capabilities unique to Cisco switches — multi-gigabit ports (1/2.5/5/10 Gbps) in combination with 1/10/25/40 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks. In addition, both series support Cisco Universal Power Over Ethernet (UPOE) and PoE+.
