The International Telecom Sync Forum (ITSF) seeks to encourage a wider understanding of the needs for time, timing and synchronisation in telecom networks and similar applications demanding sub-microsecond timing accuracy and stability. ITSF brings together individuals from industry, government and academia representing users, suppliers, professionals and experts in telecom and other sectors. An annual three day papers driven event is supported by an evening networking programme which includes an Icebreaker on the first evening and a Speaker Dinner on the second evening.
The three day conference focuses on developments, techniques, issues, challenges, solutions and Standards relating to synchronisation (sync) and timing applicable to the telecom and related industries including utilities and financial sectors. ITSF works closely with WSTS – Workshop on Synchronization in Telecommunication Systems, and also the main industry related Standards bodies ITU-T and IEEE to bring the very latest in telecom timing technology development structured by a steering group comprising thought leader experts from around the World.
The Time Lord Award for 2013 was awarded to John Eidson. His work on clock synchronisation is the basis for the IEEE 1588 Standard currently deployed in the telecommunications, industrial automation, data acquisition and power industries.
