- IEEE Tech Talk: IEEE 802.1 Time Sensitive Networking Standards
26 January | 9am ET
The IEEE 802.1 Working Group developed the base architecture and bridging standards for IEEE 802 technologies. While MAC bridging has evolved into VLAN bridging, it has also been enhanced with deterministic networking features for time-sensitive networking (TSN). This session will provide an overview of IEEE 802.1, explore time-sensitive networking (TSN), and discuss application spaces that will accelerate the adoption of TSN.

Create Your Data Management Plan with IEEE DataPort
When considering grant applications, one of the most important requirements funding agencies are looking for is your Data Management Plan (DMP). IEEE DataPort now offers a feature to its Premium Institutional Subscribers that makes it quick and easy to create a DMP that will meet the funding agency requirements.
With this feature, IEEE DataPort guides you through the process of creating a DMP, step-by-step, through a simple Web form. The form prompts you to provide information about your research data, such as author, licensing information, and research description. Additional details required for a DMP, such as how the data is stored and made accessible to other researchers is automatically populated into the plan.
Once you have completed the form, you can save the plan in IEEE DataPort, export as a PDF to save locally or submit as part of your research project proposal documentation.
Learn more about creating your data management plan through IEEE DataPort.
Access IEEE Technical Training for Your Entire Organization
Staying on top of industry trends and technology is critical, but many engineering organizations struggle to develop a strong training plan for their employees. The IEEE Resource Centers offer expert on-demand training for professionals focused on power, energy, and smart grid technologies, including subscription packages allowing for unlimited resource access for your team or organization.

Explore New IoT Learning Path with the IEEE Academy
IEEE is proud to announce the launch of its first IEEE Academy on the Internet of Things. The IEEE Academy on the Internet of Things includes two learning paths on Communications Standards and Computing Platforms.
IEEE Academies are designed to teach in-demand technical concepts in a new way to IEEE members and technical professionals working in industry. IEEE plans to launch the IEEE Academy on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the IEEE Academy on Smart Grid in 2022.
IEEE Academies are created under the vision and leadership of IEEE Past President Toshio Fukuda via the IEEE Ad Hoc Committee on Lifelong Learning and Continuing Education, and in partnership with IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Communications Society, IEEE Educational Activities, IEEE Internet of Things Community, IEEE Power & Energy Society, and IEEE Smart Grid Community.
“Today, technologists are seeking trusted sources to support their long-term and just-in-time learning needs, and this demand will continue to grow in the future. IEEE has a vital role to play in delivering ‘educational value’ to its members,” stated IEEE Past President Toshio Fukuda.
Visit the IEEE Academies website to learn more and to subscribe for the most up to date information!
