System integration: development of a global network communication protocol
conference contributionposted on 2015-05-20, 15:41 authored by Sarah Cosentino, Massimiliano ZeccaMassimiliano Zecca
In the era of globalization and standardization, in the perspective of industrial system integration, the implementation of a network framework able to interconnect any type of device and supporting both real-time (RT) and time-uncritical communication is becoming a must. This paper proposes an original entirely software-based communication framework to support RT communication over standard Ethernet, and compares it with the most relevant commercially available RT protocols in term of global costs and performances. ©2010 IEEE.
