In this paper we will show how an AES67 network can coexist within a standard non-audio network. We will detail the difficulties usually encountered when setting up and using AES67 networks. We will analyze the utility of the network protocols required by AES67: (i) IGMP and its impact on devices features, (ii) PTP and the clock recovery performance when using PTP enabled switches, and (iii) QoS and the impact of non-audio traffic such as web and corporate traffic. We will use a set-up of 10 different AES67 compliant devices from many manufacturers and supporting various AoIP protocols all compliant to AES67. We will provide recommendations in order to provide proper quality of experience while making networks coexist.
