SoC-e TSN technology embedded in third-party equipment

When SoC-e released its Multiport Time-Sensitive Networking MTSN IP and its associated kit (MTSN KIT)  one year ago, the commitment was providing a reliable, escalable and powerful  TSN solution for any kind of customer. Summarizing the results at 2018, the impact of this strategy is really positive. The MTSN kits have been delivered to customers in Europe, America and to Asia.   Additionally, SoC-e has licensed  MTSN IP for production to several customers. SPS-IPC Drives 2018 was a good reference as our technology was…

Locamation NL implements in UK a new generation of Digital Substations using SoC-e HSR IP

Locamation NL solution for SAS is based on a software defined centralized substation control, measurement and automation system. This distributed approach is used by National Grid, the UK electricity and gas Transmission Company. The new generation SAS2000 Mark II architecture uses zero-delay recovery time HSR ring to communicate the different sub-systems. Thanks to this approach, the highest level of availability can be ensured thanks to the zero-delay recovery time offered by HSR in case of network failure. Additionally, the complexity…

SoC-e presented a Secure TSN Solution at TSN/A Conference 2018, Stuttgart, Germany

Our CEO, Dr. Armando Astarloa, presented  at TSN/A Conference 2018 the talk “Facing the Security Challenges in TSN” in Stuttgart, Germany. The security in Critical Systems is a hot topic. The digitalization process is non-stoppable, and new cyber-threats are emerging due to OT and IT integration. Therefore, a need for protecting real-time critical messages is increasing. TSN is the interoperable deterministic Ethernet solution oriented to multiple sectors like Industry, Energy, Automotive and Aerospace that impose strong security requirements. Although TSN can benefit from…

GE Power Management licenses SoC-e wire-speed Cryptography IP for GOOSE&Sampled Values Security

The need for security applied to real-time control messages in Power Automation and Control Systems (PACS) is increasing due to potential attackers may have access to the communication networks. Securing GOOSE and Sampled Values (SV) frames attending IEC 62351-6 standard is a technical challenge. These messages are defined as hard real-time traffic; therefore a very low latency is required for the processing of the frames. Additionally, a high data throughput may be required by an aggregate stream of SVs. SoC-e…
