Industry 4.0 has moved beyond the novelty stage and has become a strategic focus for many companies. While IIoT offers an effective technology platform for Industry 4.0 applications, its foundation is a suitable network with the necessary level of determinism to share all data generated by a process. This transparency depends on convergence, i.e. the ability to combine multiple types of traffic on a single network, which in turn depends on determinism.
The technology that automation is moving towards to address this need for convergence is Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN).
Find out what we know and why we believe TSN should be part of your company's strategy today.
