Time synchronization for an Ethernet-based real-time token network


Hanssen, Ferdy and Boom, Joost van den and Jansen, Pierre G. and Scholten, Hans (2003) Time synchronization for an Ethernet-based real-time token network. [Report]

open access
Abstract:We present a distributed clock synchronization algorithm. It performs clock synchronization on an Ethernet-based real-time token local area network, without the use of an external clock source. It is used to enable the token schedulers in each node to agree upon a common time. Its intended use is in resource-lean systems, where heavyweight protocols like NTP cannot be used.
We present a short overview of the working of the protocol, as well as experimental results.
