Luminex GigaCore switches are Avnu Certified with firmware version
2.8.0 and later. All GigaCore switches, including legacy devices already
installed in the field, will be capable of receiving this firmware

As of GigaCore Firmware 2.8.0, the following limitations apply when enabling AVB:
In order to perform firmware updates, or applying specific
configuration changes such as enabling AVB support, the switch must be
accessed via web-interface. Every unit comes with a default IP address
printed on the back of the unit. For devices equipped with a front panel
display, the management IP addressed is displayed through the front
The default ip range is 192.168.xxx.xxx and subnet is 255.255.0.0.
Set the local computer's NIC to an IP address within the same subnet as
the switch management IP. If connected successfully, the web browser
should present a user login prompt.
The default username is "admin" while the password field is left blank.
Follow the steps to update the firmware if a version older than 2.8.0 is running. The latest firmware image is available from the Luminex website.
Use this process to enable the AVB protocols on the switch. Observe the mentioned limitations when the AVB protocol is enabled.
The status page will confirm which ports are AVB enabled. Ports are
listed with a blue label and AVB text. The page will periodically
refresh if port states change.
