    Aruba 6300M AOS-CX 10.11

    [Audio Video Bridging - Wikipedia]

    AVB devices report "Switch port is not 802.1AS capable».

    Please advise on how to enable.

    I doubt if AVB is supported on 6300s.

    And, what about Dante ? [Dante (networking) - Wikipedia]

    One good resource to know what is supported or not is the feature navigator:

    We run Dante audio over 6200 and 6300 switches all the time without any issues.  The biggest thing to keep in mind is that you need to make sure IGMP is setup and working correctly.  I've not worked with PTP at all.  I know Dante supports it but doesn't require it.

    Is this it?: make sure IGMP is setup and working correctly

    vlan 1025
    name AV -Dante
    ip igmp snooping enable

    ??

    please elaborate som more,

    It's a little more than that but not much.  The command you listed enables L2 IGMP snooping but you also need to get it setup on L3.  Here's the config I run:

    vlan 14
        name DANTE_PRIMARY
        description DANTE_PRIMARY
        ip igmp snooping enable
    interface vlan 14
        ip address 192.168.14.254/24
        ip igmp enable​
    Note that all of your switches should have an IP on the same subnet as your devices in order for the querier to function properly.  Once that's all setup you can run 
    show ip igmp​
    to verify that everything is working.  You should get output similar to 
    # show ip igmp
    
    VRF Name   : default
    Interface  : vlan14
    IGMP Configured Version  : 3
    IGMP Operating Version   : 3
    Querier State              : Querier
    Querier IP [this switch]   : 192.168.14.254
    Querier Uptime             : 75d 4h 0m
    Querier Expiration Time    : 0m 45s
    IGMP Snoop Enabled on VLAN : True
    
    Active Group Address   Vers Mode Uptime    Expires
    ---------------------- ---- ---- --------- ---------
    224.0.1.129            3    EXC  25d 10h 20 3m 10s
    239.192.0.64           2         25d 10h 20 3m 4s
    239.254.50.123         2         25d 10h 20 3m 4s
    239.255.255.250        3    EXC  25d 10h 20 3m 4s
    239.255.255.255        3    EXC  25d 10h 20 3m 7s
    ​

    When you first set it up the Querier state will be different while it goes through the querier election process but once that's done exactly ONE of you switches should have the Querier State of 'Querier' while the others should be 'Non-Querier'.  All of the switches should list the same Querier IP and it should match the IP address of which ever switch was elected as the Querier.  Also make sure that 'IGMP Snoop Enabled on VLAN' is 'True' and that you're seeing Active Group Addresses (assuming you have devices already connected to the network)

    Hi Steinar,

    6300M supports following PTP profiles:
    There is no 802.1AS so it's not supported.

    I am personally not familiar with Dante, but Wikipedia says the following: "Dante is a combination of software, hardware, and network protocols that delivers uncompressed, multi-channel, low-latency digital audio over a standard Ethernet network using Layer 3 IP packets."
    Since it uses standard Ethernet and IP and unlike gPTP (802.1AS) does not require support from the switch, it should work without issues. You probably need to tweak QoS to prioritise Dante's traffic to avoid delay and jitter, but that's something that you need to do on all Ethernet/IP network devices when you deal with audio/video, it is not something exclusive to Aruba :)

    If I remember right, AVB is coming to 6300M in fw 10.12 as well as PTP boundary clock (which might make life more easy when using AES67/Dante)

    Is this resolved in hardware now !

    And has the switch received the Avnu Alliance Milan Advanced Certification ?

    The 10.13.1000 Enhancements in Release Notes state:

    Audio-Video Bridging (AVB) defines features, options, configurations, defaults, protocols,
    and procedures of bridges, stations, and Local Area Networks (LANs) that are necessary to
    build networks that are capable of transporting time-sensitive audio and/or video data
    streams.

    AVB operates on the concept of stream reservation. Stream Reservation Protocol
    (SRP) is an amendment to the IEEE 802.1Q standard (standardized separately as 802.1Qat)
    to provide end-to-end management of resource reservations for data streams requiring
    guaranteed Quality of Service in Local Area Networks.


    AVB is supported only on the Aruba 6300 and 8360 Switch Series:

    JL717C, HPE Aruba Networking 8360-32Y4C v2 32-port 25G SFP/SFP+/SFP28 4 Sec 4-port 100G QSFP+/QSFP28 Switch (JL717C)

    JL718C, HPE Aruba Networking 8360-16Y2C v2 16-port 25G SFP/SFP+/SFP28 2-port 100G QSFP+/QSFP28 Switch (JL718C)

    JL721C, HPE Aruba Networking 8360-12C  v2 12-port 100G QSFP+/QSFP28 Switch ( JL721C)

    JL722C, HPE Aruba Networking 8360-24XF2C v2 24-port 10G SFP/SFP+ 2-port 100G QSFP+/QSFP28 Switch (JL722C)

    R8S89A, (HPE Aruba Networking 6300M 24p HPE Smart Rate 1G/2.5G/5G/10G Class6 PoE and 2p 50G and 2p 25G Switch (R8S89A))

    But: S0E91A HPE Aruba Networking CX 6300M 48p SR10 PTP/AVB Class8 PoE 4p 100G MACsec Switch (S0E91A)

    is  mentioned in Realese form elsewhere. (Products Supported)
