Precision time for industry

Project: EU project

Project Details


Ensuring that time and frequency are precisely matched across diverse sites and networks. 
From 5G telecommunication operators to air pollution monitoring stations and self-driving cars, there is a growing need for networks that reliably distribute accurate time and frequency.  
Project develops methods and devices to ensure that time and frequency are precisely matched across diverse sites and networks.    
VTT MIKES develops techniques and guidelines for calibration of propagation asymmetry in the Precision Timing Protocol White Rabbit (PTP-WR) time links and carries out field-tests.
Call 2017: Metrology for Industry
