Deterministic Ethernet Starter Kit for Evaluation of IEEE TSN for Real-Time Industrial Applications

DE-Starter Kit
DEStarter Kit

We announce the launch of the DEStarter Kit supporting IEEE TSN (Time-Sensitive Networking), for the evaluation of industrial applications over standard real-time Ethernet. The starter kit offers an out-of-the-box set up which for the first time allows users to test the performance of OPC UA and Profinet components over a TSN network. Included in the kit are TSN-enabled switches from TTTech, nodes with OPC UA and pre-loaded configurations.

“The DEStarter Kit from TTTech is a product which for the first time enables industrial customers to evaluate their own applications over a TSN network. This kit will demonstrate to users how standard Deterministic Ethernet can extract the value of Industrial IoT/Industry 4.0 from real-time industrial systems,” states Dr. Markus Plankensteiner, Director Industrial Solutions at TTTech.

Our know-how gained from 15 years’ experience of managing deterministic, high-availability networks has been used to create the DEStarter Kit, which has the TSN 802.1Qbv substandard as its main focus. With this package, which will be available in Q4 2015, customers can learn more about TSN and evaluate their own applications over a Deterministic Ethernet network. A later version of the product will also support the SAE Time-Triggered Ethernet standard.
