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.

What is Time Sensitive Networking?

Time Sensitive Networking or TSN is the IEEE 802.1Q defined standard technology 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 opening up completely new possibilities and fields of application for industrial automation and control networks.
