New in the Extreme Networks world and AVB world


Hello, my name is Jonathan. First I'm sorry for my English I'm French canadien. I own a little sound rental company bases in Montreal. We would like to offer an AVB solution to our customer, local event, festival and touring.

I recently buy recently an old X440-24P for our test in the our shop with AVB, before implanting this to our all gear. We use Dante and Cobranet to. I bought this on ebay at very low cost, perfect for starting, but after some research I found I need a Voucher code for activate the AVB license, but I can't buy AVB license thru Extreme Networks since I don't buy the switch from Extreme. So ? What it the solution,

I also bought 6x X430-8P brand new from a guy on eBay and he don't have the famous voucher number.

I contact Extreme about this and get no response after almost 2 weeks. I open an account on extreme portal. But I don't know how to add switch in the inventory.

Do I lost all my money in 6 un-usable switch ? I know I have to pay for the AVB bridging pack license.

Let me know, Thanks you for your time, I will visite frequently this site to check any response.

Best regards.
