Redundancy is a crucial element of any industrial networks and applications. It protects industrial equipment and technological process from unexpected downtime and provides uninterrupted services for customers.
Nowadays, the proprietary u-Ring technology is highly recommended for industrial applications since it can achieve faster recovery time than any STP protocol.
The aim of the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is to synchronize the time between different nodes inside Ethernet network.
The IEEE 1588 technology is applicable for power generation, automation, telecommunications, robotics and other industries, because it defines a Precision Time Protocol and time-sensitive components for precise clocks synchronization in distributed systems. Futhermore, this protocol supports synchronization accuracy in the sub-microsecond range with minimal computing resources.
