We are excited to inform you that the new standard “1588-2019 - IEEE Standard for a Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measurement and Control Systems” has been officially published on June 16th.
The IEEE 1588-2019 standard is also referred to as PTP v2.1. The IEEE1588-2019 standard now covers approx. 500 pages while its predecessor offered just 250 pages.
Obviously, a lot of new functions and features had been added.
You can acquire this standard at the IEEE Standards web store https://standards.ieee.org/standard/1588-2019.html
Oregano Systems has been intensively working on this topic for the last months.
The current release of the syn1588® PTP Stack includes the first features of the new standard:
- PTP v2.1 Immediate Security (optional feature as per IEEE1588-2019 chapter 16.14)
The new IEEE 1588-2019 standard supersedes both standards “1588-2002 - IEEE Standard for a Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measurement and Control Systems” and “1588-2008 - IEEE Standard for a Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measurement and Control Systems”.
It allows operation of 1588-2008 (PTP v2.0) systems together with IEEE 1588-2019 (PTP v2.1) systems with certain limitations as described in IEEE 1588-2019 chapter 19.
IEEE 1588-2019 (PTP v2.1) discontinues the compatibility with 1588-2002 (PTP v1.0).
As of now, the syn1588® PTP Stack will operate by default in PTP v2.0 mode.
If the above mentioned PTP v2.1 feature is activated, it will operate in PTP v2.1 mode.
Oregano Systems is committed to provide stable and up-to-date implementation of the IEEE1588 PTP.
Upcoming releases will include more PTP v2.1 functionality.
