In distributed systems, most of the end-to-end delay fluctuations, especially the delay fluctuations in the network, are bounded provided that the global network traffic loads are manually controlled to be light-weighted. Ethernet based communication protocols have recently gained more importance. The IEEE 1588 standard is the most widely used synchronization algorithm for Ethernet based communication protocols. The IEEE 1588 standard uses the centralized synchronization method. In this case, the malfunction of a specific node that sends the master clock can affect the performance of synchronization of every node on the network.
