TSN-Test Lab

Use our TSN test lab to learn more about how a time-sensitive network can be created and operated. Look with us into the details of individual standards, in which applications they are needed. We inform you how these technologies can be used, qualify you and support your team during the implementation. You already have components and want to test performance and interoperability? We can do this transparently for you with extensive equipment in our TSN test lab.

What are you interested in?

We will be happy to advise you or inform your team through manufacturer-neutral specialist presentations, e.g. on the state of the art and standardization. Which of the following technologies and applications would you like to learn more about or do you need support?

Inform and demonstrate


We advise and inform you and your team through manufacturer-neutral technical presentations, e.g. with TSN live technology demonstrations in our TSN laboratory and in the SmartFactoryOWL on site or as an online event. Individually according to your wishes, the following topics can be presented, for example: IEEE 802.1AS time synchronization, IEEE 802.1Q time aware traffic shaping, IEEE 802.1Q preemption, Linux, TSN drivers, OPC UA open62541, measurement technology.

We qualify you

We qualify you and your staff with TSN Hands On Workshops in the TSN Lab in the following technologies and standards: IEEE 802.1AS Time Synchronization, IEEE 802.1Q Time Aware Traffic Shaping, IEEE 802.1Q Preemption, Linux, TSN Drivers, OPC UA open62541. We create further topics for time sensitive networks (TSN) individually to your needs. Contact us and ask for your challenge without obligation.

You need information and consulting to implement these technologies and standards in your components? We qualify you to design your hardware and software according to real-time performance criteria, robustness, interoperability and standard compliance.

Conceptualize and specify

Together with you, we develop an architectural design in terms of software and hardware. Furthermore, we support the specification of communication systems and define interfaces of the communication systems and hardware components.


Besides informing and qualifying, we also support you in the implementation in embedded systems (hardware- FPGA- and software development), as well as in the realization and extension of network management systems (configuration, diagnosis).
