Moxa commits to Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)
Moxa has announced its active participation in the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and will formally join the TSN interoperability testbeds. As part of its ongoing commitment to creating innovative industrial connectivity technologies and solutions, the company is collaborating with other industry leaders in the IIC TSN testbeds to rigorously test TSN interoperability and ensure that the developing implementation is stable and reliable before coming to market.
Commenting on the announcement, Todd Walter, host of Americas IIC TSN Testbed, and chief marketing manager at National Instruments, said: “We are excited to have the industrial Ethernet and networking expertise that Moxa brings to the TSN community. Our customers need an open and interoperable ecosystem of TSN enabled devices. The investments and participation from Moxa in activities like the IIC TSN for Flexible Manufacturing Testbed will help ensure Ethernet switch interoperability.”
Andy Cheng, president of the Strategic Business Unit, Moxa Inc, said: “As part of Moxa’s IIoT initiative, we believe that our investments in technologies like TSN and our strategic alliances with industry partners will allow us to evolve transformative technologies that can benefit businesses and society as a whole. TSN technology is instrumental for realising the dream of mass customisation for the manufacturing industry, and goes beyond reducing overall costs to being able to actually change production on the fly. Participation in the IIC TSN testbeds is a way we can contribute to development of interoperable standards that can expand the possibilities of the IIoT. In the future, Moxa will continue to actively pursue opportunities to help evolve TSN and the smart manufacturing industry.”
