Why Smart Factories Need Time-Sensitive Networking

May 1, 2019
Many manufacturers struggle to implement and benefit from IIoT technologies. Extracting and sharing legacy asset data is a big stumbling block. Data remains siloed or is gathered in formats that cannot be shared—precluding real-time control and operational visibility. Time-sensitive networking (TSN) can address these challenges.
 
In this article, network engineers will learn:
 
How industrial organizations should deploy a combination of TSN and edge processing 
How TSN prioritizes network traffic to ensure the availability of time-critical data for industrial applications
Why TSN is well suited to edge computing required to execute predictive maintenance tasks
