For example, my "audio control" network consists of both a wired and wireless infrastructure that consists of a dedicated switch in each rack, any of which can also power an external wireless radio.
The network currently connects the following devices:
MacBook Pro (connected wireless for backup control of RM32AI is case of failure)
iPad (connected wireless for remote control of RM32AI)
iPad mini (connected wireless for DMX control)
EV DX-46 DSP (wired connection for dsp control/monitoring)
QSC CM16a (wired connection for amplifier monitoring)
sACN 1.31 dmx output node (wired connection for dmx output)
I often use the MBP to monitor my amplifier levels or change settings on my DSP, I also have used my ipad to remote control the MBP using VNC (in cases of starting break music, etc). If I understand the implementation of AVB in this case, it sounds like I will need to run a dedicated network only for AVB devices, and a secondary network for all other "ip-able" devices, and the two will never be able to talk to each other... Am I understanding this correctly? If so, that really limits my connectivity and/or requires me to carry another dedicated laptop and iPad just to be able to operate exclusively on the AVB network.
