January 18, 2018 — Relyum announced the release of RELY-TSN-PCIe, a smart pluggable board that combines in a single device PCIe TSN Endpoint and TSN Bridge functionalities, and provides 3 external fiber or copper tri-speed Ethernet ports.
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) is able to merge OT and IT worlds and would be a forward step to ensure interoperability and standardization Taking into account this functionality, three basic traffic types are defined: Scheduled traffic, Best-effort Traffic and Reserved Traffic. Scheduled Traffic type is appropriated for the hard real-time messages, and the Best-effort Traffic is the general Ethernet traffic that is not sensitive to any other Quality of Service metrics.
The Reserved Traffic type is for frames allocated in different time-slots but with a specified bandwidth reservation for each priority type.
RELY-TSN-PCIe offers the possibility to introduce TSN technology in the device where it is hosted, enabling an integration in a deterministic network.
