> The various documents do talk about three kinds of switches, home, enterprise and AVB. It is quite clear what makes an AVB switch, but what does an "enterprise" switch have over any other switch aside from speed? I am sure I am being small minded in my thoughts here. For example, I am expecting very little non-audio bandwidth and I am guessing that the average home switch does not prioritize any style of packet over another.

from my experience, I'd say the following :
compared to a home consumer switch, an enterprise grade switch is often manageable (small os on web interface), has fibre channels, and integrates protocols often related to packet prioritizing (QoS)
