IEEE Conformity Assessment Program Announces Formation of the IEEE 1588 Conformity Alliance
The IEEE 1588 Conformity Alliance, an IEEE Conformity Assessment Program, has been launched to advocate and certify IEEE 1588™- 2008 implementations. The IEEE 1588™-2008, the "Standard for a Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measurement and Control Systems," is becoming pervasive in the marketplace, ranging from applications in the telecommunications world to Smart Grid applications to manufacturing to digital audio and video broadcasting.
The initial focus of the IEEE 1588 Conformity Alliance will be telecommunications applications such as mobile backhaul. A second track will focus on certifying the conformance of power applications, and the alliance is seeking participation and input in that activity from across the power industry.
Founding Board Members of the IEEE 1588 Conformity Alliance include Alcatel-Lucent, Anue Systems, Brilliant Telecommunications, Calnex Solutions, Huawei Technologies, Iometrix, and Symmetricom. Additional Founding Members include Accedian Networks, Chronos Technology, and Ericsson. Continue reading.
