Application scenarios for Time Sensitive Networking (TSN)

January 9, 2020

TSN is an important building block in meeting the targets set for Industry 4.0. But TSN-based solutions have not yet really arrived in the portfolio of automation companies. The reason for this lies in the current discrepancy between the actual goals of TSN introduction and those currently achieved.

Migrating to TSN-based networks of the future

September 22, 2019

Looking at the impact of Time Sensitive Networking, two key points clearly come out. First, industries should consider what open network technologies are available to help them migrate current industrial Ethernet systems to TSN compatibility. Second, any assessment needs to combine TSN and gigabit Ethernet.

Business impact of TSN for industrial systems

September 22, 2019

Time Sensitive Networking enables the convergence of networks and systems that were previously separate for reasons of operational integrity, real-time performance, safety or security. Breaking down communication barriers between critical and noncritical systems is a foundational concept of the IIoT and Industry 4.0.
