PROFINET organizes the network itself. The bridges/switches use priority control to ensure that the traffic from PROFIINET is preferentially transmitted thanks to the VLAN priority tag.

The utilization of the network (or the avoidance of an overload) is ensured by engineering. This is known as “engineered traffic”.

Engineering can calculate the load and bandwidth that will occur. The update times per device and the cyclical data per device are decisive here. Sending and receiving directions are considered separately. The engineering will prevent the bandwidths from being exceeded, e.g. by reducing the update speed.
