Gary Stuebing appointed as AVnu Alliance president
WORLD: Two new members have been appointed to the AVnu Alliance board of directors at the inaugural Time Sensitive Networking and Applications (TSNA) Conference. Gary Stuebing, manager of engineering, IoT standards/architecture at Cisco, was elected as the new AVnu Alliance president, while Kevin Stanton, senior principal engineer at Intel was named AVnu Alliance chairman.
Taking the helm at the organisation, Mr Stuebing has a background in real-world IT management and has gained extensive experience from other alliances and standards groups such as IEEE, Wi-Sun and HomePlug. ‘As a founding member, Cisco is committed to supporting AVnu Alliance and guiding the evolution of the standards. Broad market expansion of AVB/TSN with wide deployment will benefit all members and markets and will assure long-term support for the capabilities in standard components,’ said Mr Stuebing. I am proud to join the Alliance board of directors with the goal to continue accelerating the momentum of AVnu Alliance and the growing interoperable ecosystem of AVB/TSN.’
Mr Stanton has been active on the board of directors for the past five years. ‘2015 will be a milestone year for the Alliance,’ he commented. ‘In this, our fifth year, we see a rich and growing ecosystem of certified pro audio products, announced plans to launch the industry's first AVB Ethernet certification for the automotive market, and have expanded our scope to include the industrial segment. These are aligned with the huge strides taken within the IEEE to advance the AVB/TSN standards, which continue moving Ethernet forward. AVnu Alliance has evolved along with the standards, and the combined knowledge and experience of our board of directors will continue to drive the alliance toward the vision of an open ecosystem of standards-based, certified-interoperable products that revolutionise networking for all time-sensitive applications.’
