The new year is almost upon us and so it’s time to look ahead. What will be the hot trends in network timing, and what technologies will change the synchronization game in 2020? 2020 will see more applications requiring greater levels of network timing accuracy, and that means the migration to IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) will accelerate. This is already happening in many verticals with examples in the power utility industry, financial sector, cable networks and in enterprise data centers ...

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 ...
