with fiber interface.

    Network-distributed public amplification audio system.
    Arenas, stadiums, studio (broadcast or private), conference centers, convention halls, theaters, zoos, themed parks.
    Name a big place which need specific sound setup, this system should be capable to deliver what you want, where you want and without interference.
    My question is: 100gbps of switching capability is enough? I'd go a bit bigger.

    hello


    here are the recommendations, can the GS series respond to this



    Dante uses the UDP protocol for audio distribution, both unicast and multicast. - Bandwidth usage is approximately 6 Mbps per basic unicast audio stream (containing 4 channels and 16 audio samples per channel). Streams are pre-allocated to a capacity of 4 channels. Audio samples can vary between 4 and 64, depending on the latency setting of the device. For multicast streams, there can be between 1 and 8 channels per stream. - The multicast audio stream from Dante devices is always on UDP port 4321. The AES67 multicast audio stream is always on port 5004. - Ports for unicast audio streams vary between: 14336 and 14600. - Audio traffic should not occupy more than 70% of the bandwidth of a network link.u. - Dante devices support sending and receiving Dante multicast streams. Dante multicast uses address range 239.255/16 and port 4321. - Most Dante devices also support sending and receiving RTP multicast (SMPTE 2110-30 or AES67). RTP multicast typically uses port 5004. AES67 typically uses the 239.69/16 address range.
    - A Dante device can send an RTP multicast stream to any address.
    
    - mDNS and DNS-SD protocols are used for discovery and enumeration of other Dante devices (including Dante Controller and Dante Virtual Soundcard) on 224.0.0.251:5353.
    - AES67 discovery is on 239.255.255.255:9875.
    - PTP (Precision Time Protocol) is used for time synchronization.
    
    - These are usually a few small packets per second. This traffic is on 224.0.1.129 - 224.0.1.132, ports 319/320.
    PTP logging (if enabled) is at 239.254.3.3:9998.
    - Dante-specific traffic monitoring is done on multicast addresses 224.0.0.230 - 224.0.0.233:8700-8708

    Hello
    here are the recommendations for using DANTE at the network level
    is the GS series able to handle this?

    Hi @baudetd,

    Is your requirement a 48 fiber port 1G switch or a 48 copper port 1G switch with fiber ports?

    Hi @baudetd,

    If you need a 48 copper port 1G switch with fiber ports, then GS2220-50 will fulfill your requirement.
    Also, it has IGMP snooping function which allows you to manage the DANTE audio network.
    In addition, we have experience with DANTE audio networks, I will PM the configuration to you for reference.

    @Zyxel_Melen maybe a guideline for "How make Dante work fine with GS2200 series" could be also useful too.
