GNSS is used extensively in the Telecom market for timing and synchronisation and Chronos is the UK leading organisation for timing in the telecommunication sector. For time and synchronisation products within the core network or for telecom test equipment please visit www.chronos.co.uk

Non timing specific application in the Telecom sector are also wide ranging, from infrastructure such as antennas, splitters and filters in RF distribution for base stations and remote sites to specialised GNSS receivers for use by maintenance and repair teams as well as future capability development departments.

Precise Time

Following the approval of the IEEE 1588 v2 protocol standard (also known as Precision Time Protocol (PTP) v2), devices on an Ethernet network can now be synchronised with IEEE 1588 v2 PTP allowing network operators to achieve precise frequency at the edge of the network to maintain and assure service levels supported by traditional TDM networks. Chronos offers the following products and solutions, servers, clients, switches and tools for measurement and analysis with integration into network monitoring systems.
