    @mw_dw maybe my perception of Dante marketshare is wrong but it's likely not that big.
    Maybe for 2023 Zyxel will consider digital/IP PA systems as a place where invest some marketing budget for demonstration, partnership e direct support.

    That depends on one's definition of 'big'.  Dante is the de facto digital audio IP workflow among many industries including Large venue concerts, corporate A/V, and House of Worship, etc.  
    We use it all the time in our HoW and even Sports productions (Dante devices from Studio Technologies and Glensound).  Here's a good writeup about marketshare based on a consultant firm from 2021.

    I spoke with someone at Zyxel US and there is interest.

    I hope to read soon something, I'd love to read some documentation which might be useful also for videosurveillance for stable streaming of data among several ports.

    I will PM you the switch configuration for the DANTE network. If you have any comments, we can discuss them in the PM.
    In addition, the guideline is under preparation. We will publish it on our website when it is ready.
