Extreme Networks and AVnu Alliance are announcing a new series of AVnu-certified AVB switches. The Extreme Networks Summit X460 Series of stackable switches has passed all testing for certification and will now bear the AVnu-certified Logo.
AVnu Alliance says they have built comprehensive testing requirements for products based on the market requirements and they claim that the tests ensure that the product conforms to the relevant IEEE standards, as well as additional requirements that AVnu Alliance has selected as necessary for proper system interoperability. You may or may not know that AVB-based audio networking is different and competitive to Audinate’s Dante-based systems.
Extreme Networks’ AVB Summit X460 Series has six ports of 10GbE and can also be used as a top-of-rack switch for many data center environments with features such as high-density Gigabit Ethernet for concentrated data center environments. And, the 1RU form factor can support up to 52 ports in one system
