Avnu Alliance: The Business Impact of TSN for Industrial Systems Whitepaper
In the growing industrial market, the evolution of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will increase the amount of data harvested through distributed networks, requiring new standards for managing and transferring critical and non-critical information. Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) is one way to ensure that this control data traffic is delivered in a timely manner by securing bandwidth in the network infrastructure, while simultaneously allowing non-critical forms of data traffic to coexist on the same network. TSN provides the tools to enable the convergence of different data traffic on the same physical network, reducing the infrastructure cost.
For C-Suite, operational and other decision-making leaders in the IIoT, understanding why TSN is so important to their operational structure is essential to making business technology choices that allow their companies to move forward with the future of IIoT. Industrial segment members within Avnu Alliance responded to this need by writing the Avnu Business Impact Whitepaper on Time Sensitive Networking: New tools to manage and converge networks, improve performance and reduce costs.
The whitepaper explores a variety of topics such as the history of Ethernet protocols, cost-savings models and the potential business impact of TSN, how to realize the promise of IIoT, and Avnu Alliance’s role in advancing TSN in the marketplace.
The Business Impact of TSN for Industrial Systems Whitepaper is a product of the Industrial market segment within Avnu Alliance. Alliance members from industry leading companies Intel and Rockwell Automation contributed their time and industry expertise to author and edit the paper.
