AVnu Alliance Opens Bridge Certification; Adds 50th Member

February 13, 2013

Beaverton, OR - Feb 12, 2013 - The AVnu Alliance, an industry forum that certifies Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products for interoperability, has opened certification testing for AVB-enabled networking bridges at its appointed testing house, the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL). AVnu Certification is available to Alliance member companies.

Several manufacturers have submitted AVB-enabled devices for the AVnu Alliance's interoperability and conformance testing, with more AVnu Alliance members expected to follow. Products that complete the testing program successfully will receive an official logo of certification, the global seal of interoperability for devices that implement the IEEE AVB standards.

"The commencement of bridge certification confirms that the AVnu vision of truly interoperable open standard networking is becoming a reality," says Rick Kreifeldt, AVnu Alliance president and VP of research and innovation at Harman. The AVnu Alliance's testing procedures will guarantee that only wholly compliant products receive the official stamp of approval."

Simultaneously, the global reach of the AVnu Alliance continues to grow with the confirmation of the group's 50th member, Symphony Teleca Corporation (STC).
