Time and Frequency Transfer in All-optical Network

Accurate time and frequency transfer between two geographically distant sites is one of common tasks in time and frequency metrology. It is dominated by dedicated two-way satellite links and GPS based systems. However, there exists a request for an alternative technique and optical network utilization is studied. Currently deployed all-optical DWDM networks offer suitable and relatively inexpensive infrastructure. This text introduces new set of optical network applications and also specifies requirements of community using such applications, metrologists and other scientists and researchers involved in time and frequency transfer.
