AVnu Alliance hosts expanded European plugfest

avnuAVnu’s next plugfest is planned for later this month
Germany - Industry forum AVnu Alliance hosted its first European plugfest in recent years at one of its Registered Test Facilities, GRL Laboratories in Karlsruhe, Germany on 16-20 May, 2022. Twelve AVnu member companies with more than 30 participating engineers came together to further develop and test TSN products and devices, along with new devices now able to be certified under the Advanced Milan Certification Programme.
During the plugfest AVnu members continued work on the integration and validation of IEEE 802.1AS time synchronization test development, with the certification programme targeted to open for members this year. This work will lay the framework for time distribution, including media specific support for Ethernet and Wi-Fi.
Plugfest testing also included the introduction of initial Wireless TSN test development over Wi-Fi, as well as the introduction of initial 802.1Qbv/.3br wired test for bounded latency through traffic shaping and scheduling with the certification program targeted to open for members by the end of this year. Data from this plugfest event will be used to refine these test plans.
This plugfest was the first since the Milan Advanced Certification Programme opened certification testing for bridged end stations, pro audio end devices with a small bridge that meet Milan specifications. AVnu members with those devices were welcomed to participate with their devices and will be invited to future plugfests.
“Our most recent plugfest demonstrates AVnu’s continued momentum and growth in making pre-certification and certification testing easier and faster for member companies,” says Ed Agis, Certification Work Group co-chair. “We are committed to helping manufacturers who are implementing TSN ensure interoperability.” AVnu’s next plugfest is planned for later this month.
