Audio over IP is becoming more and more sought after, due to the fact that it works over a standard IP network and can be sent over pre-installed infrastructure. Developed by Audinate in 2006, Dante provides uncompressed, low latency, multi-channel digital audio over IP and is a popular choice of protocol.
The DiGiCo DMI-DANTE64@96 allows 64 channels in and 64 channels out at both 48kHz and 96kHz. It has a Primary and a Secondary port, both of which are Ethercon ports, and an RJ45 Control port. The card has two modes that can be changed in Dante Controller. In Switched Mode, the three ports are switched together. In redundant mode, the Control and Primary ports shall be switched together and work as a redundant pair with the Secondary port, each having separate IP addresses so that if the primary connection fails, the secondary connection will take over.

Switched mode switches the ports together
