Selecting Network Switches
Unless you are using Dante devices that can be daisy chained, you will need a network switch that meets the following requirements to construct a Dante network.
1. Non-blocking layer-2 gigabit switch
2. Capable of switching off Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and other power-saving features
3. We recommend managed (intelligent) switches that can be configured and monitored.
4. We recommend switches that support DiffServ (DSCP) Quality of Service (QoS) with strict priority and 4 queues.
