„We’ve got realtime networking at home“ – Why many systems are moving to TSN so slowly


Johannes Zink


Nuts and Bolts

Session Type




Since several years many companies have tried to deliver realtime data e.g. audio, video or industrial control commands over the network for a variety of applications. Often, the implementations failed to deliver the promised performance under circumstances such as heavily loaded networks or were incompatible with regular network protocols. While TSN fixes most of these issues, brownfield development and migration is a challenge. This talk will look into a variety of system design approaches, into promises kept and broken and into the consequences of different system design choices. It will also propose how to move towards modern implementations and discuss the role of the linux kernel in this process.
