Internet-Draft              DetNet Use Cases              September 2017


   This draft documents requirements in several diverse industries to
   establish multi-hop paths for characterized flows with deterministic
   properties.  In this context deterministic implies that streams can
   be established which provide guaranteed bandwidth and latency which
   can be established from either a Layer 2 or Layer 3 (IP) interface,
   and which can co-exist on an IP network with best-effort traffic.

   Additional requirements include optional redundant paths, very high
   reliability paths, time synchronization, and clock distribution.
   Industries considered include professional audio, electrical
   utilities, building automation systems, wireless for industrial,
   cellular radio, industrial machine-to-machine, mining, private
   blockchain, and network slicing.

   For each case, this document will identify the application, identify
   representative solutions used today, and the improvements IETF DetNet
   solutions may enable.
