Ethernet TSN (Time-Sensitive Networking) has started profoundly reshaping automotive and industrial communications. TSN can be seen as a “toolbox” of 15+ protocols on top of Ethernet. In particular, TSN includes a growing set of Quality-of-Service (QoS) protocols such as IEEE802.1Qav (i.e., “Credit-Based Shaper”) and IEEE802.1Qbv (i.e., “Time-Aware Shaper”) that go well beyond the mere use of priorities (as offered by IEEE802.1Q).
If TSN opens up a wealth of possibilities for the network engineer to meet in an effective manner the diverse real-time and safety requirements of automotive and industrial communications, it also raises a number of questions:
To answers those questions, based on practical experiences in the design of TSN networks, we now offer a training on TSN with the following objectives:
