Time-sensitive networking (TSN) may not be a familiar acronym to most in the wireless industry, but it is to players in the Ethernet world. TSN is the ability to ensure data traffic is delivered in a timely manner over a network, and it has typically been used by wired networks because it requires very low latency. However, the latest 5G and 802.11 Wi-Fi standards, which support ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC), make TSN over wireless networks a possibility.
