Synchronization and Timing Concepts
In this chapter, you will learn the following:
Synchronous networks overview: Presents an overview of synchronous networks and a comparison of asynchronous and packet networks. Also defines frequency and phase synchronization as well as jitter and wander.
Clocks: Provides details on oscillators, clock modes, and clock types, as well as clock stratum levels and quality.
Sources of frequency, phase, and time: Explains sources of timing, with special focus on satellite systems and particularly the Global Positioning System (GPS). Also covers the short-range physical signals used to carry time.
Timing distribution network: Describes different methods used to carry time and synchronization as well ...
