Network infrastructure provider Panduit has joined the SDVoE Alliance as a contributing member in a move that sees it become the first cabling and connectivity manufacturer in the group.

Panduit has pinpointed the SDVoE Alliance as a route into the AV market. The company’s vice president of enterprise, Dennis Renaud, said: “The Alliance and Panduit have similar goals of promoting the expansion and standardisation of an AV-over-IP solution. This gives Panduit an opportunity to introduce our high-quality, industry-leading network products and solutions to the pro AV market.”

“Panduit provides vital infrastructure that supports the Ethernet physical layer, the basis upon which all the other layers are built. We welcome their valuable contribution and participation in the alliance and look forward to working with them as we provide the solid, stable, reliable and cost-effective AV-over-IP platform the pro AV market seeks.”
