Oscillators, Clocks and Times: Their Impact on Wireless Performance and Security
- Thursday, 03/30/2017: 3:30 PM - 4:45 PM
- Room: S226
- Session Number:
Course will examine crystal oscillators, rubidium, cesium and Microwave Amplification by Stimulation Emission of Radiation (MASER) atomic oscillators. Properties of each oscillator and how it affects spread spectrum and simulcast radio networks and systems will be discussed. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of Oscillators’, Clocks’ and Times’ impact on wireless equipment, test and measurement along with system performance and security. Security will be examined in regards to how exploiting time has and can be used to slip in to networks, grab key exchanges and infiltrate systems.
