Many modern telecommunication systems rely on a common signal source to serve as a phase and frequency reference signal for the network. This source is often employed to synthesize microwave transmit and receive signals locally for gateway signal processing purposes and to serve as a reference for the remotely located signal sources in the network. This scheme has the advantage of providing end-to-end network synchronization and reducing the cost of the remote terminals by requiring a high-performance phase and frequency source only at the gateway site.
