JFTR, I've seen ardour running on an Audinate Dante PCIe card last
summer at musikmesse. They have made a proprietary Linux driver to drive
their WFS systems. Unfortunately, I forgot the company's name, all I know

Though proprietary drivers are clearly nothing one should wish for, it
seems there's at least something going on in network-driven audio.

Intel has recently released an Open-AVB stack, and we'll discuss

Last not least, the RAVENNA camp has stuff ready that might benefit from
Intel's recent kernel changes. Florian Faber has (unreleased) RAVENNA-jackd
integration, and you can buy RAVENNA-enabled audio gear from

Just my €0.02
