Microsemi's whitepaper is designed to help network engineers, network planners and network operations understand how to deploy IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP). PTP is a next-generation packet-based timing protocol targeted for use in asynchronous network infrastructures based on packet transport technologies.  This document describes the Telecom Profile, recently released by the International Telecommunications Union - Telecommunications Standard Bureau (ITU-T) as recommendation G.8265.1.  This profile addresses the application of PTP to the frequency sync of GSM, UMTS and LTE-FDD base stations.
