Henrik Austad of Cisco has published very early code for implementing a TSN core driver in the Linux kernel. TSN is short for Time Sensitive Networking and was formerly known as Audio/Video Bridging (AVB).
TSN is designed for establishing low-latency, jitter-free, guaranteed-bandwidth links over a LAN by reserving a path on the network. In order to support TSN, the NIC and the network itself must be compatible.
