IABM Training - Practical PTP (Precision Time Protocol) - London

7th October 2019

A one day course that covers the fundamentals of PTP (Precision Time Protocol), including the evolution of the standard from version 1 to version 2.

The algorithm for Best Master Clock (BMC) and the process of clock synchronization will be covered. Types of clock including Ordinary Clocks, Boundary Clocks, Transparent Clocks and Grandmaster Clocks will be discussed operating in both end-to-end and point-to-point modes.

Network settings such as UDP port numbers and IP addresses will be discussed along with Quality of Service (QoS) settings recommended by professional bodies for use in the broadcast industry.

The requirement for IGMP snooping in a PTP domain will be discussed and demonstrated practically during the course. The BMC algorithm and process of clock synchronization will be demonstrated practically using Microsoft Windows software and/or PTP enabled switches and analysed on the course using Wireshark traces.
