Just to clarify, we're talking about GigE Vision as a high-level protocol running on top of Gigabit Ethernet (GigE).
The GigE Vision protocol uses UDP (which of course is running on top of IP, which is on top of Gigabit Ethernet).
By using UDP, we decrease the overhead incurred when transmitting data. We also decrease the latency and jitter by using UDP.
Because UDP doesn't have any built-in delivery guarantees, the GigE Vision protocol specifies a retransmission scheme.
Hope this answers your question.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
