Multicast Streams with Failure Protection


In this example we replicate the multicast stream example from the IEEE 802.1 CB standard.

INET version: 4.4

The Model

In this configuration we a use a network of TSN switches. A multicast stream is sent through the network from one of the switches to all other switches.

Here is the network:


Here is the configuration:

network = MulticastFailureProtectionShowcase
description = "Automatic multicast static stream redundancy configuration with failure protection"

# disable automatic MAC forwarding table configuration
*.macForwardingTableConfigurator.typename = ""

# enable freme replication and elimination
*.*.hasStreamRedundancy = true

# all Ethernet interfaces have 100 Mbps speed
*.*.eth[*].bitrate = 1Gbps

# application
*.a.numApps = 1
*[0].typename = "EthernetApp"
*[0].io.remoteAddress = "01:00:00:00:00:00"
*[0].source.packetLength = 1200B
*[0].source.productionInterval = 1ms

# stream redundancy
*.streamRedundancyConfigurator.typename = "StreamRedundancyConfigurator"
