Automation Networks in the IIoT and the Impact of Time-sensitive Networking

Free Webinar: Available On Demand

Time-sensitive Networking (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. The webinar presents an overview of TSN technology and its benefits to the future automation networks of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Key takeaways:

  • Learn why TSN technology will help the IIoT and Industry 4.0 realize their full potential
  • Understand why TSN is not “just another standard,” but a new evolution in mission-critical networking
  • Learn how TSN enables different traffic on the same network while providing the highest level of determinism in latency and jitter
  • Discover the profound impact TSN will have on automation networks of the future
