Why Become an Avnu Alliance Member?

The mission of the Avnu Alliance is to leverage the power of industry minds, and together to enable an ecosystem of interoperable, secure, low-latency and highly reliable networked devices using TSN.

  • Avnu facilitates product certification and testing to ensure interoperability and promotes open standards for deterministic networking, such as TSN
  • Over a decade of experience developing conformance specifications, tools, and test plans across markets based on accepted TSN requirements
  • Global member companies across multiple industries
  • Promoter members benefit from participation in pre-certification plugfests, face-to-face and regular workgroup meetings, specific market and technical subgroup participation, to drive important technical updates to meet market requirements and assure certified products will be interoperable with those of other vendors.
  • Avnu Alliance members also benefit from having their products and companies showcased at industry trade shows and conferences, in case studies, as part of Avnu Alliance press coverage, on social media, and more.

New in 2020! Milan Associate Membership

Avnu Alliance has released a new Milan Associate Membership Level to give companies a lower cost path to certifying and registering Milan devices. To broaden the Milan ecosystem and increase end device adoption of Milan, Avnu Alliance has also approved a Milan Module certification mechanism. Manufacturers choosing to implement Milan-certified modules into products can join at this new level to register those products as Milan-certified.

Please download the Milan Associate Membership one-pager and see the FAQs for more specifics on the Milan Associate Membership.

NOTE: Switches for Milan are AVB switches. Certification of AVB switches (i.e., switches with more than two ports) is not covered by the Milan Associate Membership.

Avnu Membership Options and Core Benefits



The Avnu Alliance certification program is open to member companies, allowing them to give customers the confidence that their certified systems have passed rigorous compliance and interoperability testing, reducing tech support costs.
