IEEE 1588v2

IEEE 1588v2 is a precision clock synchronization protocol for measurement and control systems. It defines the Precision Time Protocol (PTP), which enables accurate clock synchronization between distributed and standalone devices in measurement and control systems. With IEEE 1588v2, time synchronization precision can reach the nanosecond level.
Synchronization of clock devices includes frequency synchronization and phase synchronization. The IEEE 1588v2 protocol can be used for both clock synchronization and phase synchronization with the focus on the latter.
