2nd Deterministic Ethernet Forum
On April 28, the second Deterministic Ethernet Forum will take place in Vienna, Austria. The event is hosted by IIC, OPC Foundation and the OpenFog Consortium. Avnu and IEEE will be present as lead consortia exhibitors. Again the forum is gathering renowned speakers to discuss the development and application of Deterministic Ethernet in the industrial and automotive sectors.
Some major milestones in the evolution of industrial and automotive networking were passed or will be passed in 2017: Major industrial automation vendors are set to release TSN-enabled products, a first switch chip featuring TSN functionality is out on the market and on the road in series vehicles, and the Industrial Internet Consortium’s TSN testbed is live with wide support from leading industrial companies.
Georg Kopetz, Co-founder and member of the executive board, TTTech, says: “TTTech is delighted to host the Deterministic Ethernet Forum together
with our consortia partners. TSN is being adopted across a broad spectrum of applications, paving the way for the development of open and interoperable cross-industry Deterministic Ethernet solutions. It is important to bring the opinion leaders of leading global companies together to drive the evolution of Deterministic Ethernet.”
To further this evolution of Deterministic Ethernet as the open standard networking solution in the industrial and automotive domain, companies like B&R, Intel, Audi, Cisco, GE, Infineon, Magna, Nebbiolo Technologies, Renesas, Bosch Rexroth, Schneider, NXP and TTTech support the forum and will give insights during keynotes and panel discussions.
