Delivering Sub-Microsecond Accurate Time to Linux Applications Around the World

Free white paper, authored by Symmetricom

Trading applications at market participants require access to precise timing information – the same precise timing information – in order to transact business profitably, without risk and within regulatory edicts.

The key word is precise. Accuracy is vital, and the more accurate the timestamp, the harder it is to deliver it to applications. This white paper explores the challenges in delivering sub-microsecond accurate time to Linux applications, presents IEEE 1588 Precise Time Protocol (PTP) solutions, and outlines test data demonstrating how to overcome those challenges.
