IEEE 1588-2008
IEEE Standard for a Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measurement and Control Systems



Number:
IEEE 1588-2008
Standard:
IEEE Standard for a Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measurement and Control Systems
Year:
2008
Brief Description:

A protocol is provided in this standard that enables precise synchronization of clocks in measurement and control systems implemented with technologies such as network communication, local computing, and distributed objects. The protocol is applicable to systems communicating via packet networks. Heterogeneous systems are enabled that include clocks of various inherent precision, resolution, and stability to synchronize. System-wide synchronization accuracy and precision in the sub-microsecond range are supported with minimal network and local clock computing resources. Simple systems are installed and operated without requiring the management attention of users because the default behavior of the protocol allows for it.
