P802.1Qbv - Standard for Local and Metropolitan Area Networks-Media Access Control (MAC) Bridges and Virtual Bridged Local Area Networks Amendment: Enhancements for Scheduled Traffic

Bridges are increasingly used to interconnect devices that support scheduled applications (e.g., industrial automation, process control and vehicle control). This amendment will provide performance assurances of latency and delivery variation to enable these applications in an engineered LAN while maintaining the existing guarantees for the credit-based shaper and best-effort traffic.This amendment specifies time-aware queue-draining procedures, managed objects and extensions to existing protocols that enable bridges and end stations to schedule the transmission of frames based on timing derived from IEEE Std 802.1AS. Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) tag encoded priority values are allocated allowing simultaneous support of scheduled traffic, credit-based shaper traffic and other bridged traffic over Local Area Networks (LANs).
