We asked each of the panelists to provide us with a soundbite as to why time and sync were so mission critical in their respective industries - here is what they said:-

Heiko - "A lot of different industries are dealing with similar or even identical challenges regarding time synchronization. Sharing solutions and ideas is going to benefit everyone at the end of the day."

Andy - "Timestamp synchronization to an authoritative source is required on most if not all financial transactions to allow the regulators to ensure honest folks stay honest."

Tony - "The changing composition of electricity generation with up to 75% of power coming from renewable sources, such as wind and photovoltaic, creates substantial challenges in maintaining transmission system stability and avoiding outages. Renewable sources cannot be dispatched in the same way as traditional plant and additionally do not supply inertia in the same manner as large spinning machines. Precise timing provides the potential to better plan and manage electricity networks using wide area synchronised phasor measurement."

Andreas - "Professional broadcast applications require phase-accurate media clock synchronization across all participating devices. With IP-based systems, PTP can be utilized to replace the legacy BNC-connected GenLock cables and provide a high-precision reference time that now enables perfect sample-accurate synchronization between any signals."

We asked each of the panelists to provide us with a soundbite as to why time and sync were so mission critical in their respective industries - here is what they said:-

Karl - "In modern vehicles time comes in various different flavors. Some use cases like high-end audio/video-streaming need a highly available time that can be relative, others require a tamper-resistant absolute time that is coordinated with UTC, and yet others a time that is reliable in terms of functional safety. Alluding to Einstein's famous words, time does not always have to be relative; for automotive use cases it sometimes needs to be absolute, and other time secure or even safe."

Daniel - "If you do not choose the time (of your clocks) right, even your best (5G networks) will go wrong. Timing matters!"

Anand - "We have seen the applications of precise time, particularly PTP, grow significantly in the last year in multiple industries where communication and correlation work hand in hand. We’ve had to work hard to keep improving our test products to stay ahead of the technology curve."

Wayne - "A correct time reference is a critical component of the modern radio or television broadcast station infrastructure."
