independent clocks
In communication network timing subsystems, free-running precision clocks used, for synchronization purposes, at the nodes. Note: Variable storage buffers, installed to accommodate variations in transmission delay between nodes, are made large enough to accommodate small time (phase) departures among the nodal clocks that control transmission. Traffic may occasionally be interrupted to allow the buffers to be emptied of some or all of their stored data.
