SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) is pleased to announce it is the newest member to join AVnu Alliance, the industry consortium that certifies Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products for interoperability. Arista’s membership marks the growth of AVnu Alliance in the professional audio video industry and helps push momentum for the growing ecosystem of interoperable AVB devices through AVnu-certification.

“Arista is thrilled to become a member of AVnu Alliance, the only organization that is driving open, standards-based AV networking via Ethernet,” said Vice President of Business Development and Alliances for Arista, Ed Chapman. “Arista’s Extensible Operating System (EOS) implementation of AVB delivers a next generation solution for the audio video industry with the performance and cost of Ethernet economics.”
