The TSN/A Conference is jointly organized by Avnu Alliance in Cooperation with the German trade publications Computer&AUTOMATION and Elektronik automotive.
With Time Sensitive Networking – TSN – standard Ethernet is extended to deliver great time synchronization and worst-case latency for applications that require robust, deterministic connectivity. TSN enabled products for industrial automation are now on the way. TSN – together with 5G and OPC UA - has broad impact especially in application areas like Industrial, Automotive and Pro AV/ Consumer IP networking.
The TSN/A Conference 2020 will highlight the standard’s technological aspects as well as Application-specific topics relevant in the various markets/industries.
The program for the common annual technical conference focuses on Time Sensitive Networks and Applications for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Industrial Internet of Things, Real-Time Audio & Video, and Intelligent Transportation Systems!
How far has TSN progressed? What role does Time Sensitive Networking play in a world of Smart Factories, Smart Cities and Smart Vehicles in future? That were questions the more than 420 participants, speakers and exhibitors intended to bottom out at the TSN/A Conference on October 08-09 in Bad Homburg, Germany.
"Even though the IEEE has set many standards for Time Sensitive Networking since 2005, a lot can still go wrong," says David McCall, Intel, in his keynote speech to open the international TSN/A Conference. McCall points out some pitfalls that still stand in the way of a technology breakthrough, but also gives tips on how all participants can work together to avoid this.The morning of the first day was dedicated to standards and profiles. Dr. Stefan Poledna of TTTech heralded the afternoon with a prophecy in his keynote that the trend towards autonomous vehicles would make TSN the most important communication technology in the vehicle.
After this excursion into the automotive world, the topics of the first day were security aspects, TSN configuration models and redundancy mechanisms for high availability of TSN networks.The second day offered four thematic sessions: 5G and TSN, Systems and Open Source, Industrial and last but not least Automotive.
The 5G keynote by Dr. Andreas Müller, chairman of ACIA, had its premiere this year. He clearly highlighted the possible TSN-over-5G functionalities that could shape factory communication in the future.
The TSN/A Conference was staged for the third time in this form. It is the continuation of the German Industrial Ethernet TSN Congress of WEKA FACHMEDIEN and the international TSNA Congress of the AVNU Alliance, focusing in particular on TSN aspects of industrial automation, the automobile industry and the consumer world.
