Other functionality that is currently being developed within the TSN working group covers the configuration of redundant paths in a network as well as the redundancy management of the frames that are being sent along these redundant paths. The AVB clock synchronization protocol itself is currently also being improved towards provision of multiple synchronized time bases as well as towards fault-tolerance.
The standardization of these elements will greatly contribute to the success of Deterministic Ethernet in the automotive industry.
