A nanosecond-accuracy, scalable, multi-point time- and frequency dissemination has been set up in an existing DWDM optical fiber network spanning approximately 200 km, using the White Rabbit (WR) Precision Time Protocol (PTP). Presented novelties in this paper are: a performance study of 5 cascaded WR switches allowing a wide fan-out; reference delay compensation ensuring that the time received by the user is synchronized with the reference timescale within a few nanosecond offset; experiments with a master clock priority algorithm for redundant operation and experimental results of hold-over performance.
