Unlocking the Power of TSN

TSN and PikeOS: A Perfect Match for Next-Gen Systems

Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is revolutionizing the way industrial networks operate. As the convergence between IT and OT networks accelerates, TSN emerges as a critical enabler for Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. But what exactly is TSN, and why is it so important? TSN is a collection of standards that enables deterministic messaging over standard Ethernet networks. It ensures non-negotiable time frames for end-to-end transmission latencies, making it ideal for real-time communication in industrial control applications. TSN offers several key benefits:

  • High-Speed Networking: TSN facilitates large volumes of data transmission, highly accurate motion control, and low latency. It prioritizes network traffic, ensuring that time-critical data reaches its destination precisely when needed.
  • Enhanced Network Security: Accurate data transmission can be scheduled, preventing unauthorized data inflow. TSN provides a secure foundation for critical applications.
  • Convergence and Simplification: TSN allows diverse applications to share a unified network, eliminating concerns about data delivery timing
