FAQ Series 52
Which switch should I choose for my Dante AoIP network?

In general, you should choose a Gigabit Managed Switch. This should allow to switch off the EEE functionality (Energy Efficient Ethernet or Green Ethernet).

Managed and unmanaged switches without the option to switch off the EEE functionality are not suitable.

The following switches are tested by DHD and other manufacturers and are recommended for the Dante networks:

  • Cisco Small Business SG300-10
  • Cisco Small Business SG300-20

Cisco - Small Business 300 Series Managed Switches

Detailed information about choosing the right switches and their configuration can be found on the Audinate website:

Audinate - Networks and Switches
