ATIS’ Workshop on Synchronization and Timing Systems Takes Place Live and In Person in Denver

ATIS’ Workshop on Synchronization and Timing Systems Takes Place Live and In Person in Denver

Also, don’t miss Resilient Timing for Critical Infrastructure webinar April 6.

WSTS – THE EVENT: North America’s premier sync and timing event, the Annual Workshop on Synchronization and Timing Systems (WSTS), produced by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS), takes place May 9-12, at the Embassy Suites Downtown Denver, Colorado. Registration now open.

WSTS brings together the leading corporate and government experts on timing and sync topics live and in person. The knowledge-sharing environment and rich, expert-driven dialogue helps companies learn how to use timing and sync innovation to advance their market objectives.

BACKGROUND: Staying up to date on timing and sync innovation is more critical than ever as a growing number of industries rely on complex timing and sync-dependent applications for their effectiveness: Telecom (e.g., 5G) – Financial Services – Electric Grid/Power – Transportation/Automotive – Industrial Internet-Broadcasting and Multi-Media to name a few. With a theme of The Expanding Spectrum of Timing, WSTS 2022 presents the essential insights that all sync and timing-dependent sectors benefit from.

Topics include sync and timing in telecom; precise timing in the power grid; finance, data centers, distributed computing & hybrid clouds; sync in broadcast and multi-media; timing measurements and metreology; experience from the field; security and resilience; alternate PNT including activities in space and time & frequency sources and synchronization.

KEYNOTES: by speakers from CableLabs, Hydro-Quebec, Meinberg, NIST, RethinkPNT, Scottish Power Renewables, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and Xona Space Systems:

  • Future Time Synchronization Needs for Quantum Networks
  • The 10G Platform: Not Your Father’s Cable Network Anymore
  • Security Aspects of Time Synchronization Solutions
  • Evolution of Hydro-Quebec’s Synchronization Network
  • The Importance of Time in Digitalization and Decarbonization of Power Networks

Wednesday, April 6, 2022; 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Critical infrastructure requires precise timing to operate. In this webinar, industry experts will describe techniques for adding resilience and robustness to timing infrastructure including redundancy, holdover, management, monitoring and alternatives reference time sources. Examples will be given in networks for critical industry applications such as: power grids, telecommunications, finance systems and broadcast/media. Featuring presentations from WSTS 2022 sponsors Microchip, Oscilloquartz, Meinberg and Calnex. REGISTER FOR THE APRIL 6 RESILIENT TIMING WEBINAR.
