SYNCHRONOUS ETHERNET (SyncE)


How SyncE Works

An introduction to Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). The role SyncE has in transporting a clock from a core location across an entire network is introduced. The standards that apply to this vital network technology are also introduced.

How to test SyncE

What test requirements are there for Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) test? What test methodology and parameters need to be considered, and how is the functionality verified? The crucial roles of accuracy and repeatability are discussed.

Jitter & Wander in SyncE

Examining the implications of Jitter and Wander in the SyncE environment. What is Jitter & Wander? The many causes of Jitter & Wander are discussed along with comment on ITU-T standards, and the measurements that must be considered.

Setting up a 1pps Measurement

This setup guide shows you how to configure the Calnex Sentinel to measure the 1pps Time Error from, for example, a PTP (1588) Master Clock, Boundary Clock or a Slave Clock. The possibility for in-depth analysis is also explored.

Setting up a SyncE Network Test

This setup guide shows you how to configure the Calnex Sentinel to measure wander in a Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) network.The measurement results can be loaded to the Calnex Analysis Tool for more in-depth analysis and to generate a report.

How PTP works

An introduction to Precision Time Protocol (PTP). The role PTP has in transporting a clock from a core location across an entire network is introduced. The standards that apply to this vital network technology are also introduced.
