Choosing a Certified AoIP Ethernet Switch

Updated 1 month ago by Shaun Dolan

Scope

The following is a list of Axia-approved network switches, accompanied by their Axia configuration guides, to assist you in building your AoIP network infrastructure.

This list includes only network switches that are in production and/or supported by the manufacturer at the time of this writing and is intended as a guide, primarily, for new installations.

The Ethernet switches listed here are not the only switches approved by Axia, nor are they the only switches for which we have configuration guides. Please search TelosHelp or contact us if you require the configuration guide of a switch not listed here.

This list is updated periodically but should not be relied upon as the sole source of End of Support / End of Life status; your dealer can advise you on this at the time of quotation or purchase.
