Time Distribution Strategies in Cellular Networks

This paper reviews the various methodologies currently available for ensuring Time Of Day (TOD) synchronization in cellular networks. It also introduces RAD’s revolutionary Distributed GMTM scheme, designed to deliver superb TOD accuracy at a lower cost in LTE and small cell networks, by bringing Grandmaster functionality closer to the base station in a small form factor device.

What you will learn:

  • Using GPS for Time Distribution in Cellular Networks
  • Backup to GPS using Sync-E
  • Transition to IEEE 1588-2008 (PTP)
  • Centrally Located PRTCs/PTP-GMs
  • Access Located Distributed GMs
  • Joint GPS-PTP
  • RAD’s Distributed GM Solutions
