Extreme Networks, Inc. EXTR and AVnu Alliance have announced another series of AVnu-certified AVB switches.

The Extreme Networks Summit X460 Series of stackable switches passed all testing for certification and will now bear the AVnu-certified logo.

“AVnu Alliance and our members are ensuring interoperability across a broad ecosystem of devices through certification, which will bring economies of scale and drive down total costs,” comments AVnu Alliance president, Rick Kreifeldt.

“There are many more AVB end points and switches in the pipeline for AVnu certification, with certification and interoperability testing for automotive, video and consumer electronics expected to open in 2015.” 

“AVnu-certification has allowed us to go the extra step for our customers toward scalability, flexibility and reliability throughout the network,” adds Todd Acree, director of product management at Extreme Networks.

“We are very proud to now have two families of AVnu-certified switches on the market and we will continue to pursue certification for more switches. AVB standards provide a dynamic infrastructure that has huge benefits for our customers. AVnu-certification of our X460 series minimises maintenance and reduces total cost while simplifying system design and optimisation of the network.”

AVnu certification is open for switches and professional audio products at its appointed testing house, University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL).

Any member may enter it into certification testing.
