In the WR network, a dedicated time and frequency system is set up to deliver and distribute the time signal from WR switches or WR nodes locally. Accordingly, the design of a flexible, transferrable, and extensible time and frequency system is required for complementing existing WR equipment and WR networks. Here we propose the concept of “universal module”. Based on the universal modules, a variety of devices and TF system can be developed. In particular, three applications are demonstrated in this paper. Finally, the first measurement results of the integrated devices will be demonstrated in this paper.
