PROFINET over TSN Guideline




TSN represents a set of IEEE sub-standards that complement existing IEEE Ethernet and bridging standards. PROFINET over TSN makes use of those amendments and supplements PROFINET IRT on the Ethernet layer with IEEE standardized counterparts. It refers to the IEC/IEEE 60802 TSN Joint Profile for Industrial Automation (TSN-IA Profile) resulting in a converged network behavior and the use of common hardware components to fulfill the real time requirements on Layer 2. With TSN, PROFINET is standing on a more robust and future proven foundation which in turn creates more planning reliability for production and industrial solutions. This guideline provides initial guidance for device and stack developers to expedite the development of new devices supporting PROFINET over TSN.
