Virtual Local Area Network Bridging with TSN Enhancements

  • Online

This course introduces the components of network architecture that play a vital role in time-sensitive networking (TSN), and which provide the tools needed by network architects to properly architect networks to support the delivery of data for time-sensitive applications. The course explores the architecture of the Virtual Local Area Network Bridging (VLAN) focusing on the core functions of bridging, frame forwarding, and bridge management. Network topologies are covered, including logical network overlays, link management functions, and path redundancy. Network management protocols and the attendant YANG network management model is discussed. Quality of Service, critical to TSN, is detailed along with several TSN configuration models. 

What you will learn:

  • How a Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) works
  • Understand VLAN bridge architecture and data flow
  • VLAN TSN tools
  • Network topology and overlays
  • Understanding the MAC address hierarchy in the data plan
  • Additional protocols (tools) in the control plane
  • Understand Quality of Service and traffic prioritization
  • TSN configuration models
