PRECISION TIME PROTOCOL (PTP)


gPTP: Testing Synchronization for Industrial TSN

This document outlines how IEEE 802.1AS (gPTP) provides the high-accuracy synchronization which is the foundation of Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and what the challenges are for testing and developing gPTP.

What is gPTP?

The fundamental building block on which Time Sensitive Networks are constructed is the time distribution layer. In most cases this is provided using the generalized Precision Time Protocol (gPTP) defined in IEEE Standard 802.1AS.

MiFID Time Compliance

This document gives a brief overview of the requirements for time accuracy and traceability to MiFID II, background information on Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and the part it plays in satisfying these requirements.

How PTP works

An introduction to Precision Time Protocol (PTP). The role PTP has in transporting a clock from a core location across an entire network is introduced. The standards that apply to this vital network technology are also introduced.

Time Transfer in Industrial Ethernet Applications

One of the most prevalent protocols for industrial time transfer is Precision Time Protocol (PTP). PTP offers dependable, high-accuracy time synchronization of multiple clocks over Ethernet networks enabling real-time systems and applications.

How SyncE works

An introduction to Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). The role SyncE has in transporting a clock from a core location across an entire network is introduced. The standards that apply to this vital network technology are also introduced.

How to test PTP

A strategy for synchronisation in LTE networks. Topics include Sync needs along with ITU-T models, network readiness, sync service level agreements via lab tests, ITU network models and PTP performance at demarcation points.
