What is White Rabbit and why does it matter for high accuracy time services?

White Rabbit

Initially developed by CERN, White Rabbit is at the cutting edge of high accuracy time systems. To find out more about how it works and why such high accuracy is important, I talked with Ragge Sundblad, who has been working on the preliminary study of White Rabbit at Netnod.
In this Q&A, we discuss the benefits and challenges of deploying White Rabbit and the steps Netnod has taken to achieve sub-nanosecond accuracy.
