Distributed Systems Need Better Timing
The need for accurate timing cuts across multiple sectors, but there seems to be a common thread: the trend towards distributed architectures.
Consider distributed databases, distributed computing, distributed communication networks, distributed sensor arrays, and distributed controls.
Generally speaking, distributed systems offer resiliency and efficiency but require low latency and better synchronization.
Do you think the GPS architects are planning for this? We are.

🎓 The More You Know...

Last week we highlighted resources to learn about quantum technologies ahead of the holidays.
There are also a plethora of sites available to learn about timing and synchronization.
For data center timing, the Time Appliances Project is a good starting point.
Their site has an extensive set of online articles and the recent 2021 OCP Global Summit presentations.
To learn about timing for telecommunications, the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) is host to white papers and the upcoming Workshop on Synchronization and Timing Systems.
A similar organization, the International Timing & Sync Forum (ITSF), is holding their next conference in November and provides access to presentations from previous conferences.

Next week we will post some of our favorite quantum books and educational videos, so if you have any recommendations please pass them along! You can email us or schedule a meeting here.
