Your Benefits of Being Fast in Implementing Deterministic Ethernet Networking

Global Deterministic Ethernet standards are being created within major industry standardization bodies like IEEE and SAE. This paves the way for seamless communication within the Industrial Internet and for high-speed automotive real-time safety networks. The mass market uptake of these standards is being supported by semiconductor power houses with dedicated silicon solutions.

What is Deterministic Ethernet?

  • Based on IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.1Q AVB and 802.1Qbv TSN
    (pre-standard) as well as SAE AS6802 standards
  • Guaranteed message delivery across switched Ethernet networks
  • Improved safety and security with a traffic class immune to Denial of Service
  • Full convergence of critical, real-time and regular traffic within a single network
  • “IoT-ready” with support for standard higher layer Industrial Ethernet protocols without need for gateways

What Makes Deterministic Ethernet Unique?

  • Guaranteed timing for hundreds of real-time control functions in a complex system
  • Guaranteed bandwidth even in case of excessive network loads and bursts
  • Guaranteed delivery even in case of network faults

Your Benefits of Being Fast in Implementing Deterministic Ethernet Networking


  • Convergence enables hardware reduction
  • Faster system installation and commissioning


  • Simplicity from consolidating on one networking standard
  • Reduction of product variants, support and engineering
  • Quality data acquisition enables better process optimization
  • Flexibility in the network to suit flexible operations


  • New business models, e.g. control as a service, enabled by new functionality and improved data access/visibility
  • Better predictive maintenance and Guarantee of Service enable uptime-based services
