With the definition of new standards like HSR/PRP or IEEE 802.1CB for TSN networks, that guarantee “zero-packet-loss” or “zero-recovery-time” redundancy in the transmission of traffic, networks in critical sectors are evolving to Ethernet, as the technology that can offer them high bandwidth and interoperability.
However, these sectors demand some special requirements in the transmission of critical data (control data), that need to be ensure even under congestion scenarios. Those requirements are low latency and low jitter.
As a first step in this evolution, companies are implementing testbeds for validating the suitability of these technologies for their applications. In order to have a complete setup, a device capable to generate congestion traffic becomes necessary.
RELY-TRAF-GEN has been designed to cover this market’s demand. With an FPGA based design capable to generate high throughput data, it can transmit up to 3 Gbps traffic through its Ethernet ports.
