DEStarter Kit

Starter Kit for evaluating OPC UA Publish/Subscribe over pre-standard TSN (Time-Sensitive Networking)

The DEStarter Kit from TTTech is the fast and easy way to evaluate the performance of OPC UA PubSub communication over a time-scheduled network. TSN comprises a set of IEEE 802 Ethernet standards which provide latency guarantees for critical traffic in open and converged networks. This is called Guarantee of Service.

The Starter Kit includes pre-standard TSN enabled switches from TTTech, and OPC UA compliant microcomputers for an easy to use out-of-the-box set-up. The network is non-configurable but comes with pre-configured routes for testing your own OPC UA components. There is also the option of creating new configurations via an additional support package. Users can evaluate TSN for configuring control networks, seamlessly integrating systems and securing critical network traffic against denial-of-service and network flooding. TSN is also compatible with your installed base of industrial Ethernet protocols. Time scheduling can even be used to upgrade existing network traffic to achieve Guarantee of Service.

With over 15 years’ experience in time-scheduled networking, TTTech is a leader in asynchronous communication in the fields of industrial automation, automotive and aerospace. TTTech customers will benefit from Guarantee of Service, which allows for the convergence of controls, streaming and data traffic over one standard Ethernet network without affecting real-time performance or wasting bandwidth.
