Timing and Synchronization in Packet Networks

Donnerstag, Dezember 17, 2009


Increasing broadband service penetration demands a transport network that delivers significantly lower cost-per-bit than traditional circuit-switched networks, and Ethernet provides the technology baseline for a cost-effective transport technology. For Ethernet to become a carrier-grade technology in wide area networks (WANs), operators and vendors have introduced several key technologies, including those necessary to address timing and synchronization requirements in WANs.

This webinar presents:

  • A description of requirements for wide area transport of Time Division Multiplexed (TDM) services with focus on timing and synchronization
  • A review of key emerging technologies, including Synchronous Ethernet and Precision Time Protocol (PTP)
  • Test applications for timing and synchronization, including jitter and wander measurements
