An Automated Configuration Framework for TSN Networks


Publication Type:

Conference/Workshop Paper


22nd IEEE International Conference on Industrial Technology (ICIT'21)


Designing and simulating large networks, based on the Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) standards, require complex and demanding configuration at the design and pre-simulation phases. The existing configuration and simulation frameworks support only the manual configuration of TSN networks. This hampers the applicability of these frameworks to large-sized TSN networks, especially in complex industrial embedded system applications. This paper proposes a modular framework to automate offline scheduling in TSN networks to facilitate the design time and pre-simulation automated network configurations as well as interpretation of the simulations. To demonstrate and evaluate the applicability of the proposed framework, a large TSN network is automatically configured and its performance is evaluated by measuring end-to-end delays of time-critical flows in a state-of-the-art simulation framework, namely NeSTiNg.
