CC-Link IE TSN in the spotlight at SPS Connect

The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) will participate in the SPS Connect digital automation hub from 24th-26th November 2020. During the event, the organisation will showcase how its latest technology, CC-Link IE TSN, is an enabler for Connected Industries. This is achieved by being the first open gigabit Ethernet with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) capabilities.

SPS Connect will provide a leading digital hub for industrial automation experts from all over the world to discuss the latest trends and solutions that are moving manufacturing industries forward. As an industry leader in open network technologies for factory automation, the CLPA will join the event to highlight the benefits of TSN for fast and reliable industrial communications.

CC-Link IE TSN provides a key technology to converge operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT), supporting the creation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platforms that are at the heart of Industry 4.0 data-driven intelligent manufacturing plants and enterprises. Digital attendees interested in learning more about TSN and how it can enable this convergence will be among the first to be able to download the CLPA’s latest white paper on the topic.

The document, titled ‘Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) – The Case For Action Now!’, discusses what business benefits TSN can deliver to a range of companies, such as device vendors, machine builders and end-users, by acting as the foundation of converged network architectures. It also gives an overview on how the technology is evolving and how to implement futureproof TSN-driven communications by adopting CC-Link IE TSN, the first open Ethernet technology that combines 1 Gbit bandwidth with TSN support.

Visitors to the CLPA’s profile will also be able to watch videos, and other key documentation will be available. During SPS Connect, the CLPA is also planning to hold a virtual press conference where a significant announcement will be made concerning the strategic direction of the association.

Finally, leading automation and network technology experts will be available throughout the event to provide additional information and discuss the benefits of its technologies for manufacturers. John Browett, General Manager at CLPA Europe, comments: “SPS is a key event for the CLPA and we are delighted to take part in this year’s edition via the SPS Connect platform. We look forward to meeting with attendees and sharing how our technologies can support the creation of the Connected Industries of the future.

“Our latest solution, CC-Link IE TSN, provides a solid framework to share ever-increasing volumes of data across an enterprise and leverage the power of Big Data analytics. As a result, it is ideal to implement advanced IIoT architectures for Industry 4.0 applications.”
