IEEE Communications Society Seminar – October 26, 2017

IEEE COMMUNICATIONS SOCIETY, Winnipeg Section, and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Manitoba, are hosting the following technical seminar.
All are welcome to attend.
TITLE: Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) – A topic on Industrial Ethernet
SPEAKER:  Dr. Guillaume Mantelet
DATE:    Thursday, 26 October 2017
TIME:      1:00 pm
PLACE:     Room E3-262, EITC, University of Manitoba, Fort Garry Campus
ORGANIZER:  IEEE Communications Society (Winnipeg Section)

Deterministic Ethernet aims at filling the gap left by the IEEE802.1Q standard to proprietary solutions (e.g. CAN buses), regarding soft and hard real-time applications. Ethernet was first thought to be probabilistic by nature in order to provide reliability and fairness for accessing to the medium. However, the unpredictable delivery of Ethernet frames may lead to unwanted loss, delay and jitter in streams, with potentially disastrous consequences on life-critical applications – one cannot accept a smart car controller freezing, waiting for a delayed sample coming from a sensor.

In this presentation, we will discuss Deterministic Ethernet, and Time-Sensitive Networking and show how with an accurate Timing and Synchronization protocol (IEEE802.1AS), a Time-Aware scheduler (IEEE802.1Qbv) can ensure the tight time-delivery of frames. Also, we will talk about drafts and future concepts of TSN, such as the frame preemption (IEEE802.1Qbu). Practical use cases and a review of the state-of-the-art tools will be provided to achieve determinism in an existing network.

Dr. Guillaume Mantelet has been working in Embedded Software Engineering at Iders – a GE Transportation company, since 2015. He received his M.Sc. in Telecommunications and Network Engineering (2007) and Ph.D in Electrical Engineering (2012) at Ecole de Technologie Superieure in Montreal. Before joining Iders, he worked as a Software Quality Assurance Specialist at Accedian Networks (2012).

Dr. Mantelet’s core expertise is “layer 2” oriented, and includes the establishment of end-to-end paths in optical transmission lines, and the definition of a control plane, Carrier Ethernet and more specifically, concepts touching the Quality of Service in Ethernet networks, and more recently Deterministic Ethernet. Starting with a scientific training, he could leverage his knowledge by developing tools in embedded projects.
