Perhaps no network is as critical to the world economy as the power grid. Without electricity, after all, there is no data, no connectivity, not even (gasp!) Netflix.

Increasingly, electric utilities are transitioning to smart power grids to enhance efficiency and drive down costs. By implementing two-way communications between smart devices in the field and centralized data facilities, and then coupling that with intelligent analytics, operators gain unprecedented insight into consumption patterns, grid performance and other metrics to ensure optimal levels of operation at all times ...

Officially, there’s no explanation for what caused the recent disruption at Israel's busiest airport. For three weeks, flights were affected by mysterious disruption to signals from the Global Positioning System (GPS). Pilots reporting navigation system errors with inaccurate “spoofed” locations had to resort to alternative methods to land planes ...

Synchronizing distributed network architecture is a major challenge. Highly accurate phase delivery at aggregation sites is becoming more and more vital with the growth of IoT and the emergence of 5G applications. But the aggregation site can be a tough environment for grandmaster clocks. Firstly, it requires timing technology with new levels of power, size and cost optimization, integrated with a highly scalable network management system. Grandmasters need to be ruggedized and able to operate in wide temperature variations. And, most importantly, they need a backup plan ...
