Profile for Use of IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol in Power System Applications


Smart substations are coming, and they require microsecond timing.


IEC 61850 standard for Power Utility Automation establishes the requirement for microsecond accuracy for critical measurements. The IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol used in conformance with the PTP Power Profile (C37.238-2011) will deliver microsecond accuracy to the Phasor Measurement Units, and enable Wide Area Measurement Systems and control applications to achieve the goals of the Smart Grid: to avoid wide scale outages and enable more efficient operations.

Symmetricom/SISCO Joint Webinar
Enabling WAMPAC with 61850 and the Importance of Time Synchronization


Power utilities all over the world are installing Wide Area Monitoring, Protection, and Control (WAMPAC) systems. These projects enable new insight that prevent cascading outages, enable islanding, improve efficiencies and help operators manage the complex real-time variances in the grid. Precise time-synchronized measurements are essential for these systems.


This webinar will discuss WAMPAC systems and how using the IEC 61850 (power systems communication) and the IEEE 1588 (precision time protocol) standards will significantly benefit the performance of the power system and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Network Time Synchronization - Regulatory Compliance/Governance in Financial Markets


Time stamping and network time synchronization is critical for transactions across distributed networks. Events on a distributed network need accurate time stamping to initiate and control processes, and complete transactions such as authentication, audit trails, trigger events and alarms. Accuracy of time is implicit in the high frequency trading: financial services, online financial transactions, billing systems, digital forensics, high-reliability databases and process analysis.

NTP or PTP: Which is the Best Network Timing Protocol for your Enterprise Application Needs?


Enterprise systems have very specific timing needs to ensure that customers using these systems get the full benefit of a precise and accurate timing source. Key timing factors that can play a significant role in providing a high-quality of timing service are accuracy, reliability, security and ease of use. The NTP and PTP protocols posses several features that can be effectively implemented to support the specific needs of an enterprise application. Some enterprise applications may only need the specifications supported by NTP whereas some other enterprise applications may need the higher accuracy and reliability offered by PTP. This webinar will provide the necessary details to help an Enterprise systems architect understand the features and benefits of each protocol and decide what is best for his specific application needs based on his system requirements.

Synchronizing Precise Time For Trading Around The Planet

This webinar will focus on synchronizing ultra precise time (i.e. sub microsecond) across distributed (Linux) applications deployed in high frequency and algorithmic trading. The challenges are twofold: First, how to very precisely synchronize the time between computers in a trading system. The second, is how that time can be precisely synchronized with other computers around the planet.


This webinar will demonstrate how to overcome these challenges, and will be supported with real data/measurements. The goal is for the audience to learn about the need for time synchronization, technology to deliver the time, the techniques to validate/verify the time accuracy and precision, and real world data supporting the claims.


1. The importance of time stamping and synchronization for high frequency and algo trading.
2. Current challenges to time synchronization, and business impacts of errors.
3. What is PTP, PTP accuracy and why not all PTP synchronization systems are created equal.
4. Overcoming network and (Linux) operating system issues that impact synchronization accuracy.
5. Time measurement techniques at the trading application layer.
