What is Milan?
Milan is an emerging audio networking protocol. It stands for Media Integrated Local Area Networking, is based on the Audio Video Bridging (AVB) standard, and will change the way audio devices interact in professional setups. Let's find out what it is, what its key features are and how it differs from others.

We work for standardization of network technology in the AV industry.

Open standards are the basis for a healthy and innovative network ecosystem. We are committed to a standardised environment for network connectivity in the professional audiovisual industry.

JOYNED was founded by Richi Rozas and Fabian Braun, who was involved in the creation of Milan since the beginning.

Inside a Plugfest: Where Innovation Meets Collaboration
When it comes to advancing technology and ensuring product compatibility, few events are as pivotal as a plugfest. This unique gathering, facilitated by the Avnu Alliance, offers a rare glimpse into the collaborative effort required to enhance and standardize networked products, particularly those that support the Milan protocol.
ISE 2024 Throwback - The Rise of the Milan Ecosystem
We have all seen the impressive stats for this year's ISE. It was an incredibly successful show, with overwhelming exhibitor and visitor numbers, an extensive conference programme and just a great show experience for everyone who attended. But what really excited us was the overall rise of the Milan ecosystem. While Milan has been around for quite some time, there was an obvious peek in perception and acceptance during this year's event. Almost as if some force was pushing our favourite audio-over-Ethernet protocol to the forefront of everyone's minds.
