Title: Ethernet for Industrial Networks – Time Sensitive Networking
Abstract: To take advantage of industrial automation for increasing efficiency in the next generation factory floors, the underlying networks must provide reliable and deterministic interconnections of machines and control systems. Ethernet has become the obvious choice for building these networks because of open standards, low cost and its wide popularity in the enterprise backbone.
But the best-effort paradigm of Ethernet protocol does not provide guaranteed delivery of data with a guaranteed quality of service—a MUST for industrial control networks. Time-sensitive networking (TSN) over Ethernet enables low and deterministic latency and guarantees for communication of the most critical control traffic over a single communication network
