Design networks with latency and real-time requirements in mind


TCN is a high-tech Swedish startup originated from Chalmers Ventures – the leading incubator in Scandinavia, top ten globally

Maximum performance at minimum cost

model based performance simulation of the network

Time Critical Networks (TCN) creates software that enables networks to adopt to applications' needs and requirements, not the other way around.

TCN customers can with this unique virtual design software create cost-effective and robust Ethernet networks with latency, jitter and packet delivery guarantees. Benefit from using *Regular/Standard COTS switched Ethernet without compromising on data delivery reliability, and use AVB or TSN if needed.

TCNs software solution TCN TimeAnalysis™ for model-based performance simulation and analysis of real-time traffic streams is now open for public BETA Testing. Link to Download.

 *Definition of Regular/Standard COTS Ethernet:

- Based on Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Ethernet hardware
- Uses standard software stacks (IEEE802.3) 
- Uses only hardware features that are supported by the most common Ethernet switches.
