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
