GigaCore Ethernet switches support Milan/AVB says Luminex

Luminex

Luminex Network Intelligence’s GigaCore-series Ethernet switches can be used for AVB traffic after securing Avnu certification to support the Milan/AVB network protocol.

With the addition of Milan/AVB compatibility, which requires GigaCore firmware version 2.8.0 or later, Luminex GigaCore switches offer the same ease of use, with no command-line interface and no complicated parameters to set. No specific license need be purchased to enable Milan/AVB traffic. With one click in the web interface, the switch takes part of the clock domain of the AVB devices and allocates the necessary bandwidth. Audio streams are handled with perfect synchronisation.

Audio Video Bridging (AVB) is a set of IEEE standards for transporting audio and other real-time content over Ethernet. Milan is a user-driven protocol built on top of AVB open standards, with added specification requirements for professional media to ensure that all Milan devices will work together on a fully interoperable pro AV network.

GigaCore firmware version 2.8.0 is now available for download and new GigaCore switches ship with the updated firmware.
