“Comprehensive network connectivity planning is not a discussion that can happen in fifteen minutes on a tradeshow floor,” says Lee Minich, President of Lab X Technologies. “For instance, we have many companies approaching us who have already made the strategic decision to use Audio-Video Bridging (AVB) as their networking platform.”
AVB is an umbrella term for new IEEE standards that make both wired and wireless Ethernet networks capable of reliable real-time delivery of audio and video.
The critical questions for product manufacturers planning to leverage this rapidly emerging networking technology are “What should our AVB roadmap look like?” and “What are our next steps?”
To provide answers, Lab X is now offering the Connectivity Design Assessment (CDA). The CDA is a thorough exploration of a client company’s specific product or platform.
Lab X devotes a man-week of its broad-based connectivity design expertise to each CDA, generating concrete use cases and product requirements.
The CDA process produces well-defined high-level designs that product development and engineering teams can take action on.
Lab X Technologies is currently undertaking CDAs for a wide spectrum of electronics manufacturers.
With tongue firmly in cheek, Minich points out that at Lab X, “Clients only have to ask us three or four times before we realize there is a need.”
The CDA requires a minimal investment of $3,995, which can be credited towards additional Lab X design services during project implementation.
