CobraNet has emerged as the de facto industry standard for transporting high quality audio over Ethernet. But CobraNet does more. In addition to its high performance audio transport, it also offers flexible routing, control and monitoring capabilities. Rapid changes in the performance, functionality and adoption of digital audio technology makes the ‘Connected by CobraNet’ label a key to success in a changing market.
