The new Ethernet standard Time-Sensitive Networking is an enabler for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) but gets more and more difficult to configure with a continuous rising number of network nodes, because each node has to be set up separately. We propose an approach towards automatic configuration of real-time networks based on models of IEC 61499, a modeling language for distributed industrial automation systems. Therefore, these existing models are analysed w.r.t. their network modeling capabilities and missing information is shown.
