Abstract

The Third IEEE 1588 conference was hosted by the Zurich University of Applied Sciences in Winterthur, Switzerland on October 10-12, 2005.  The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Instrumentation and Measurement Society are technical cosponsors of the conference.  The proceedings presented include an executive summary of the conference, tutorial presentations of the IEEE 1588 standard and its applications in various sectors of industry, conference presentations and papers, and detail of the plug-fest that demonstrated the interoperability of the implementations and synchronization of IEEE 1588 - compatible devices.  The technical presentations and paper covered diverse subjects such as primary timing reference sources for IEEE 1588 systems, nanosecond-level clock synchronication, network simulation environment for clock synchronication, security, synchronizing legacy networks, synchronization approach for resident Ethernet, and implementation on a gigabitEthernet.  Furthermore, there were a number of application papers covering the areas of industrial automation, military, test and measurement, power generation, and telecommunications.
