Kontron adds managed 8-port TSN switches to its industrial Ethernet solutions
Kontron is expanding its industrial switch product line with high-performance and cost-effective TSN switches. The different versions of the KSwitch D10 MMT will be available in early Q1/2022 and offer both RJ45 and SFP fibre interfaces up to 2.5 Gb/s with full TSN feature-set and management.
Modern automation solutions for successful Industry 4.0 and IoT applications require high-performance real-time communications. Kontron says the new KSwitch D10 MMT family is suitable for Fast- and Gigabit networks and is specifically designed for use in industrial environments. In addition to a compact design, the switches offer the possibility to interconnect machines, controllers and other devices in a future-oriented way based on Time Sensitive Network Ethernet (IEEE 802.1 TSN).
All TSN standards, such as IEEE 802.1AS, 802.1Qci, 802.1Qav, 802.1Qbv, 802.1Qbu/3br and 802.1CB, as well as IEEE1588 v2 are supported.
The implemented management allows to structure Quality of Service, VLANs and IGMP-functions in industrial networks and to program the TSN network. Optionally, a Netconf implementation for TSN network functions is available.
