Project Goal:

Time-Sensitive Networks (TSNs) are a crucial component in mission-centered computing. A key challenge is the need to synchronize transmissions among heterogeneous multimedia network traffic with varying quality of service (QoS) constraints. Test bed and the corresponding studies of traffic performance using TTTech technology.
