What does asynchronous mean?
In an asynchronous circuit, parts are largely autonomous. They are not governed by any regular, periodic time-controlling mechanism, such as a clock circuit or signal, but instead need only wait for the signals that indicate completion of instructions and operations. These signals are often specified by simple data transfer protocols.
This digital logic design is contrasted with a synchronous circuit which operates according to clock timing signals.

1999-09-09 Self-synchronizing a CDMA cellular network
This paper describes the concept of utilizing the normal messaging of mobile stations operating in an IS-95 CDMA network to transfer time between various BTSs (Base Station Transceivers). IS-95 is a time-synchronous system in that all BTSs operate from a common time reference, which is specified to be the same as the time scale used by the Global Positioning System (GPS). This design choice provides the CDMA network with several advantages over an asynchronous design, but does require some means to distribute time throughout the network.
