Don’t Ethernet networks require synchronisation?
Operating PDH and SDH networks would be impossible without accurate synchronisation of the network devices. Synchronisation is required so that a continuous data stream is read in and out at the same speed at the inlet and outlet to the network.
In packet networks (Ethernet, IP, MPLS…), synchronisation isn’t even necessary just to transmit the data because packet transmission compensates for the differences in speed at the inlet and outlet to the network. However, an increasing number of applications require the correct time, or synchronisation of frequency and phase. As a result, synchronisation transmission via packet networks is becoming increasingly important to many network operators.
To make their applications more powerful, many industries use highly accurate transmission of synchronisation over transport networks.
Modular synchronisation solution for network timing with 10G interfaces. IEEE 1588 grandmaster clock with support of PTP, NTP and SyncE via several 10Gbit/s Ethernet interfaces, as well as 1Gbit/s interfaces with hardware time stamps for precise timing requirements.
A family of IEEE l588v2 PTP synchronisation devices with testing functions and GNSS assurance monitoring with NTP server and GNSS receiver and multiple sync fanout options for use at the edge of the mobile telephone network and other packet-driven transmission networks. Also ideal for legacy networks and migration to packet networks.
Can be installed on windows or inside walls. Whether mounted indoors or outdoors, even at street level in urban canyons, OSA 5405 offers unparalleled flexibility.
SFP-based PTP grandmaster, boundary and slave clock designed for use in packet networks, allowing you to upgrade legacy systems with IEEE l588v2 PTP and synchronous Ethernet functionality.
