A range of technologies can be used to deliver synchronization solutions in next-generation packet networks. And there may be more than one solution in which a network employs multiple transport technologies - for example, in the mobile backhaul. To ensure that the overall business objectives are met, the solution of choice is dependent on a detailed understanding of the requirements. Network synchronization is a generic concept that depicts a way of distributing common time and frequency references to all the nodes of a network in order to align their time and frequency scales.
