The SDVoE Alliance has announced that CommScope has joined its organisation, accelerating the replacement of point-to-point connectivity and the matrix switch with off-the-shelf Ethernet switches
SDVoE technology is a standardised interface between endpoints and software that enables new players to create AV applications for broad adoption. It addresses the full seven-layer OSI stack and offers solutions at every layer, essentially not requiring proprietary protocols and is much easier to support.
“Our adoption of SDVoE is driven by our commitment to the AV market,” CommScope vice president, wired product management Siva Valliappan says.
“It allows us to bring our award-winning 10G and 100G platforms together with our high-performance Cat6E cabling products to deliver a complete solution for partners looking for a single networking vendor.”
SDVoE Alliance president Justin Kennington welcomes CommScope to the alliance and looks forward to the value-added networking solutions their 10Gbps ICX switch lineup provides to users of SDVoE technology.
“CommScope’s networking and switching expertise will provide AV professionals with much-needed guidance as they transition from traditional matrix switches to more flexible, scalable and cost-effective Ethernet-based AV deployments,” he says.
