TSNWiFi Field Study: Determinism in wireless/wired industrial environments
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) has already a proven role in Ethernet networks for Industry 4.0. TSN supports the strict delay and bandwidth requirements of critical applications in Industrial environments.
The next phase in industrial connectivity concerns a better mobility support, and automated configurability, as well as being able to handle large number of IoT devices. The need for simplification is driving the integration of wireless in industrial environments.
In this context, the most recent evolution of Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) is „WiFi6“, technically known as IEEE802.11ax. In contrast to prior WiFi standards, WiFi6 has properties that can support precise time synchronisation and bounded latency.
The field study is being developed by fortiss and Huawei in the context of the TSNWiFi project and is focused on exploring wireless deterministic capabilities. A key aspects is to understand the need to rely on wireless in an operational ground.
