Time Sensitive Networking

The course provides an overview of Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), the most promising technology in the manufacturing and automotive industries for unifying network infrastructures.

The IEEE TSN standards are extensions of the Ethernet to include functions and mechanisms for guaranteed transmission of data in real time.

In the near future, existing non-interoperable industrial network solutions will be replaced to ensure seamless communication between enterprise and manufacturing processes. Characteristics such as high bandwidth, interoperability, strict and reliable real-time communication - which means the transmission of data packets within deterministic time and delay limits - are the basis for the broad acceptance of the TSN standard. A large number of international companies in the automation industry support the use of this technology and actively contribute to standardization.

The training is part of the further education program of the FOKUS-Akademie.

Training content:

  • TSN Time synchronization
  • TSN Stream & Traffic Control
  • TSN Configuration
  • Further developments of TSN
  • Market overview
  • Application examples

Ideal for the following job functions:

  • Development engineers, decision makers
