1Gb (or more) bandwidth for every port
Layer III - Can perform at or near wire speed, but also acts as a router because it has IP routing intelligence built in.

EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) or Green Ethernet needs to be disabled.
QoS - Quality of Service prioritization of audio traffic.
Fiber to Copper conversion preferable using the SFP/mini-GBIC form factor.
IGMP snooping must be properly configured.
