IEEE Launches Study Group To Explore Distinguished Minimum Latency Traffic In A Converged Traffic Environment

IEEE, the world's largest professional organization advancing technology for humanity, today announced the formation of an IEEE 802.3™ “Standard for Ethernet” study group to explore the requirements for network latency and real-time control in industries such as industrial automation and automotive. The new IEEE 802.3 Distinguished Minimum Latency Traffic in a Converged Traffic Environment Study Group will look at additional opportunities to expand the overall Ethernet market and their associated technology requirements.

“Companies are eager to efficiently converge all network services—scheduled, streaming and priority-based, and best-effort traffic—onto the same LAN (local area network). But for this to occur, particularly in certain market segments such as industrial automation and automotive, lower end-to-end latency and real-time control are required in support of scheduled traffic in time-sensitive LANs,” said Ludwig Winkel, chair of the new IEEE 802.3 study group and a fieldbus standards manager at Siemens Industry Automation Division.

The purpose of the new IEEE 802.3 study group is to look at the promise of simultaneous support for undisturbed distinguished real-time control traffic and best-effort traffic (e.g., audio and video data) on a single Ethernet network (converged network), maximizing bandwidth usage while retaining the network's real-time capabilities to support operations in automotive control, industrial automation and other applications. Individuals interested in this work are invited to contribute to the new study group, which is scheduled to meet 17-22 March 2013 at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, Fla., as part of the IEEE 802 plenary session. Please visit http://www.ieee802.org/meeting/index.html for more information.

“An IEEE 802.3 study group is formed when there is interest in developing a request to initiate an IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standards-development project,” said David Law, chair of the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group and distinguished engineer with HP Networking. “Once there is evidence of enough interest in a particular technology area, an IEEE 802.3 study group provides a forum for global experts to come together in collaboration and develop a proposal for an IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standards-development project. I look forward to the work of the new study group exploring distinguished minimum latency traffic in a converged traffic environment and its insights into expanding the IEEE 802.3 market.”
