5G and IEEE 802.11 wireless connectivity provide low-latency and high-reliability communications, which have provided an opportunity and interest in extending the capabilities of TSN to wireless. As TSN is deployed across a broad range of market verticals, extending similar capabilities to wireless technology is a natural next step. As such, it is important to start discussions on topics such as consistent interoperability testing, certification efforts and other ecosystem needs as early as possible to ensure that it is applicable to time sensitive network services across physical layers and different industries. Avnu will cooperate with multiple standards bodies and other alliances to enable this.
The Working Group has written a new white paper titled Wireless TSN – Definitions, Use Cases & Standards Roadmap. The white paper looks at existing standards, the standards gaps that should be addressed for widespread Wireless TSN implementation, potential use-cases, and an rexamination of the work required within Avnu and industry to allow TSN capabilities across wireless and wired networks in the future.
Members of the working group and authors of the white paper include representatives from Intel, Keysight Technologies, General Electric, and professional AV manufacturer, L-Acoustics.
