The Time Has Come for Greater Precision
Time-stamping and time
synchronization, once the domains of specialists, is now required
knowledge for developers of high performance network monitoring and analysis
appliances. In this white paper, we provide an introduction to the key fundamentals of time-stamping and time synchronization with a review of technology
choices and testing scenarios. Most importantly, the white paper will
show that nanosecond time-stamping and time synchronization is now essential
for accuracy and precision especially as we move to 40 and 100 Gbps networks.
