The Cisco IE4000 switches require an additional installation to be TSN capable. The switch IOS software and its documentation is maintained by Cisco. The purpose of this document is to bridge the LabVIEW Time Sensitive Networking community with the Cisco support pages.
Installing TSN IOS software to a IE4000 switch:
Dear NI Team
Just for making things clear, the IE-4000 Cisco Switch won't support the TSN communication out of the box. And we need to Install a different version of the OS (the one mentioned in this article) to make it TSN capable. Right?
Cisco offers multiple versions of firmware (IOS) for their switches, some that support TSN and some that were released before TSN support was available. The switch needs to have a firmware version loaded that supports TSN. Because we don't know what version will be loaded on any specific switch (what was originally loaded at the factory, has it been updated since, etc), the first step is to update the firmware to a version that supports TSN.
