Hello to All,
I understand (e.g. from Mills papers) that the Allan variance can be used to
characterise timing sources and clock drifts.
I was wondering about the significance of calculating the Allan variance
for a clock disciplined by NTP, while being affected by network jitter
(assuming high quality timing source).
Can the Allan variance be used to provide a quality measure of NTP in a
particular network? or lower order statistics, such as mean of the
frequency/offset errors are more apt to quantify NTP.
My aim is to provide a quantitative measure of NTP ability at
disciplining a particular oscillator, under different network jitter.
Such that a minimum network quality can be recommended in order to
achieve given accuracy (or in my case frequency stability).
Anybody has done any work in this direction?
