Moxa Demonstrates New Solution for TSN

The joint demonstration by an ideal combination of the chipmaker, device manufacturer, and software stack provider exemplifies the maturity and the potential of TSN capabilities and its readiness for being extended from wired to wireless networks.

Moxa has partnered with Intel Corporation and port industrial automation GmbH to develop a platform that demonstrates the industry’s first ready-to-use, application-to-application solution of time-sensitive networking (TSN).

Moxa Solution TSNThe solution combines Gigabit bandwidth and high performance, as well as enhanced reliability and security.

“As one of the pioneers in developing TSN standards, Moxa committed to collaborating with key industry players and customers to accelerate a unified network infrastructure for communications at all levels including all kinds of industrial devices and protocols running on top of it,” said Zico Lee, Deputy General Manager of Moxa Networking. “Working closely with Intel and port, we’ve achieved another milestone for advancing the development of TSN to the next stage as burgeoning consensus shows that TSN and wireless capabilities should combine to digest and react to data from multiple systems in real-time.”

“Moxa’s solution using TSN and real-time features on Intel Architecture Processors will enable the level of determinism required by Intelligent Industrial Edge systems where data is extracted, analyzed and actions applied real-time. Using standard Ethernet-based solutions accelerates digital transformation to Smart Factories, thus lowering total costs of ownership,” said Sunita Shenoy, Senior Director of Industrial IoT Platforms, Intel.

“With TSN, there is finally an Ethernet-based technology available that can connect all kinds of devices on the factory floor using standardized Ethernet TSN infrastructure devices overcoming proprietary systems,” said Marcus Tangermann, Chief Technology Officer, port industrial automation GmbH. “TSN infrastructure components have better knowledge about all data streams within the network, which allows sophisticated planning of network traffic.”

The joint demonstration by an ideal combination of the chipmaker, device manufacturer, and software stack provider exemplifies the maturity and the potential of TSN capabilities and its readiness for being extended from wired to wireless networks.

The joint effort shows great promise that focuses on working on a truly unified and high-performance network infrastructure permitting all types of traffic to coexist.

The unique proposition of the solution is the feasibility for the framework to integrate devices and protocols such as CC-Link IE TSN by CLPA, PROFINET over TSN (PROFINET CC-D), EtherCAT over TSN, and the upcoming OPC UA FX. There is also a neutral middleware developed for all kinds of industrial protocols over TSN to deliver synchronous communications between sensors, PLCs, and actuators, which are used in various industrial applications.
