JTWG System Aspects
The JTWG general scope of work is to identify the unique system requirements of Ethernet networks from the aspect of industrial automation applications and to establish techniques for the management of system aspects such as:
- common system configuration as well as system diagnosis procedures based on existing standards as e.g. RFCs, especially for IAONA partner technologies,
- user guidelines regarding system aspects of Industrial Ethernet systems, and
- input to normative committees.
