Sync & Timing in Packet Networks

As more digital traffic is crossing more carriers’ networks and passing through more manufacturers’ equipment to get to more and more users, so the requirements for phase & time sync are evolving.  As networks rapidly switch from traditional TDM technology to packet technology to accommodate the traffic, Chronos’ Sync MasterClass continuously evolves to include the latest developments in time, frequency & phase generation, transfer and consumption, including updates from the standards groups where new metrics are being proposed to address packet-based synchronisation techniques. 

The next Sync MasterClass session scheduled to take place at Chronos Technology is 21 & 22 February 2018.

Chronos can also deliver the MasterClass in-house both in the UK and overseas.  Please call +44 (0)1594 862200 for more information.
