A Switch in Time: Future-proofing AV Networks

This paper - supplied by the AVnu Alliance and written by Bruce Borgerson, principal, Strategic and Technical Communication - aims to explain how AVB-enabled switches operate on a network.

As AV signal transmission steadily migrates into a networked environment, the infrastructure required to support future demands becomes an increasingly vital consideration.  At this point, there’s no going back. Everybody involved – AV consultants, systems integrators and often the IT departments of corporate customers – must be on the same page when specifying infrastructure that can remain viable for at least five years and preferably a decade or more.
