Time synchronization is critical for 5G networks. Above all else, time synchronization must be stable and precise at every cell site. Any loss of synchronization ultimately impacts the performance of 5G networks, and the consequences are costly.
In this webinar, we will outline the 2 types of synchronization: SyncE and IEEE 1588 PTP. We will discuss time error measurement metrics and maximum time interval errors, distinguishing between the two PTP Telecom profiles: G.8275.1 and G.8275.2.
The webinar will also feature a time error test demonstration using the G.8275.1 profile and a high accuracy GNSS receiver.
