TSN Technology Update


Time Sensitive Networking

Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a technology poised to deliver an entirely new level of determinism for standard IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks. Series of articles in April issue presents a TSN Technology Update and impact on factory automation

What is Time Sensitive Networking?

Time Sensitive Networking or TSN is IEEE 802.1 standard designed to provide deterministic messaging on standard Ethernet. TSN technology is centrally managed and delivers guarantees of delivery and minimized jitter using time scheduling for those real-time applications that require determinism. Read in this section how TSN is opening up new possibilities and fields of application for industrial automation and control networks.
