Acceleration of the 5G network, convergent with growth in the number of Smart City-related applications requiring synchronization, amplifies the critical need for accurate and reliable timing throughout the network. A broad range of Smart City-related applications will require synchronization including those in the areas of Transportation, the Industrial IoT, and Smart Grid.
This session addresses the various aspects of synchronization as related to 5G and Smart Cities applications. It identifies the key synchronization implications and requirements of relevant 5G use cases and new architectures. Potential new solutions used to complement traditional GNSS- or PTP-based solutions as well as PNT (Position, Navigation, and Time) Smart City services are presented.
