Meinberg Sync Academy in cooperation with Sincron Sistemi SrL, our local partner, organized Synchronization Seminars in Rome (April 11th) and Milano (April 13th).

The two seminars have been a great success, with more than 100 participants from the most important companies in the field of Broadcast, Defense, Energy, Finance, IT, Telecom and Transport.After a brief overview of various Synchronization methods like GPS, Glonass, Beidou, DCF77, IRIG, NTP, PTP IEEE1588, PPS, 10 MHz the new family IMS (Intelligent Modular Synchronization) of Meinberg was highlighted and it was demonstrated how specific solutions for different synchronization applications could be configured. LANTIME M500 IMS and M3000 models were used to showcase the flexibility and adaptibility of the Meinberg IMS system. The NTP mechanisms, related performances in various operating systems and explanations for all relevant setting options have been presented. In a live demo part, practical examples for the discussed topics were shown.

Special attention was paid regarding PTP IEEE1588, we revisited its historical evolution, explained different modes of operation, switch and router roles and discussed performance, pros and cons of Unicast and Multicast communication and the various profiles used in Power and Telecom applications.

A special section of the seminar was reserved to creating different IMS configurations by using the large selection of modules available from Meinberg. Redundancy concepts of synchronization, its various possible implementations and a couple of case studies stressing advantages of down converted antenna were shown. The conformance with ITU-T G.811 and the outstanding performance of the low jitter PPS output were mentioned, too.

In the following session, the Network Management using the Espy II Software from Bridgeworx was discussed in details. In a live simulation, the management and monitoring capabilities of Meinberg M3000 IMS using Espy II and some failure simulations were demonstrated. Many operators currently have existing deployments (or devices from multiple vendors) so the Espy ability to not only manage Meinberg IMS devices is a big advantage, avoiding to have separate management systems for each vendor.

Finally live demos using different PTP profiles (IEEE 1588v2 Default Profile and ITU-T G.8265.1 Frequency Profile) for PTP synchronization between Lantime M500 acting as slave and M3000 used as PTP Grandmaster were shown. At the end the attendees expressed great appreciation of the Sync Seminars and the Meinberg and Sincron team received a lot of positive feedback.
