Accurate time synchronization is an essential driving force in the success of today’s most commonly used technologies. Telecom, Finance, Utilities, Broadcast, Transportation, IoT, and Defense are evolving with critical timing enablers in many of their systems.
Telecom continues to require tighter “sync” particularly for the operation of mobile wireless systems. 5G, driven by the demands of significantly greater spectral efficiency and the migration to small cells, is particularly sync-dependent. Next-generation E911 networks now have new, more stringent requirements for time synchronization.
