Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) Playbook
Test Cases & Methodologies
While Ethernet is the most wide-spread networking technology employed, it inherently operates on a best effort basis to deliver packets across a network. Ethernet Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) Standards enable Ethernet to become a deterministic networking technology:
Synchronization of network elements: end-points, switches and gateways
Controlled and accountable delay (latency)
Prioritization of traffic classes
Guaranteed bandwidth reservation
Redundancy TSN is made up of many standards that have been and are being developed exclusively to tackle different issues and functionalities.
This playbook provides an overview of the various Time-Sensitive Networking protocols and step by step instructions on how to test different use cases using Spirent solutions.
