Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a novel technology that offers an entirely new level of determinism in standard IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks.
TSN is a technology that combines the large bandwidth capabilities of Ethernet with the determinism of a real-time fieldbus – all based on vendor-neutral standards specified by the IEEE 802.
This means that future Ethernet networks will be able to provide:
- Calculable, guaranteed end-to-end latencies
- Highly limited latency fluctuations (jitter)
- Extremely low packet loss
For which applications, however, are these characteristics really relevant and how exactly does TSN achieve this functionality?
The new Belden White Paper on “Time Sensitive Networking” gives an overview of the most important functions provided by TSN and illustrates the advantages of using TSN in demanding industrial networks.
