We present our experiences with the implementation of a real-time Ethernet switch called EtheReal. EtheReal provides three innovations for real-time traffic over switched Ethernet networks. First, EtheReal delivers connection oriented hard bandwidth guarantees without requiring any changes to the end host operating system and network hardware/software. For ease of deployment by commercial vendors, EtheReal is implemented in software over Ethernet switches, with no special hardware requirements… CONTINUE READING
