Your critical infrastructure requires accurate and precise clocks and a resilient timing architecture, in order to meet IEC 61850 standards. Together with Microchip, we’ll be discussing the impacts and considerations of network timing on substation modernization. Join us on Wednesday, February 23rd.

The 5G rollout continues to gain momentum and with it comes timing issues. As timing and transport technologies evolve and advance, they offer enhancements and alternatives to 5G timing architectures for fronthaul applications. The Virtual Primary Reference Time Clock (vPRTC) offers some advantages over traditional architectures.
As you read this, your network of workstations and servers, each with its own clock, are actively timestamping files, emails, transactions, and so on. At the same time, your server logs are recording every type of transaction in case the information is needed for audit or forensic analysis. At some […]
Critical infrastructure (CI) transportation—such as aviation, railway or maritime—relies on the use of Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) services delivered by Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) for operational efficiency, reliability and, most importantly, public safety. GNSS is used for a range of airport operations including asset management and mapping vehicle […]
