TSN Flow

TSN Flow: Term used to describe the time-critical communication between end devices.
Each TSN Flow is uniquely identified by the network devices
? TSN End Device: An end node attached to a local area network (LAN) or
metropolitan area network (MAN), which acts as a source of, and/or destination for
real time communication.
? TSN Bridges (Switches): These are special bridges capable of transmitting and
receiving Ethernet frames of a TSN Flow according to a schedule
? Centralized User Configuration (CUC): An application that communicates with the CNC
and the end devices. The CUC represents the control applications and the end devices. The
CUC makes requests to the CNC for deterministic communication (TSN Flows) with
specific requirements for those flows.
