A bewildering array of equipment and possible topologies are available to the designer of an audio network. This document describes recommended and supported network topologies for use with Dante media networking. Networks should be constructed using recommended switches (see the Audinate Application Note QoS Configuration of Ethernet Switches, AUD-ANO-QoS_Switch_Configuration-V1.0 for details). In larger networks, the latency at receivers may need to be increased in order to guarantee reliable audio operation. Recommended latency values are provided for various network scenarios.
