The EAV Software License is the license that triggers software support of IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging standards, which provide three major enhancements for 802-based networks:
Precise timing to support low-jitter media clocks and accurate synchronization of multiple streams
A simple reservation protocol that allows an endpoint device to notify the various network elements in a path so that they can reserve the resources necessary to support a particular stream
Queuing and forwarding rules that ensure that such a stream will pass through the network within the delay specified by the reservation
