Time & Timing in Packet Networks

The Chronos Synchronisation MasterClass is continuously evolving to keep up with changes in various industries and to ensure we deliver the latest information about time and timing in communication networks.

Networks are changing from traditional TDM technology to packet technology and the course material has been updated to include the latest developments in time, frequency & phase generation and transfer including updates from the Standards groups where new metrics are being proposed to address packet-based synchronisation techniques. Synchronisation requirements for next-generation fixed and wireless networks will be discussed.

The next Sync MasterClass session scheduled to take place at Chronos Technology is 5 & 6 July 2017.

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