Real-time communication with PROFINET based on TSN
Time-sensitive networking (TSN) is a promising technology drawing a lot of attention at the moment. TSN offers great potential for PROFINET.
It aims to combine the wide range of IT networks with the robustness and determinism of automation networks. In short: hard real-time via standard IT networks. But this doesn’t signal a revolution for PROFINET. Rather, it represents a visionary architecture upon which PROFINET is building. Our TSN animation videos shows you how real-time communication is possible on standard Ethernet and how this fulfills the requirements of Industrie 4.0.
