Joining Forces for Interoperability

The Ethernet Alliance HSN subcommittee will be developing the test suites and test criteria for the October 2021 HSN Plugfest in the coming months and actively seeks input and feedback from the industry.  Offering a competitive advantage exclusively for members, Ethernet Alliance plugfests provide a neutral, secure testing environment.

If your organization is interested in participating in the plugfest and is not yet a member of the Ethernet Alliance, please reach out to the Ethernet Alliance administration.  Don’t delay, it will be an exciting and informative event!
