This Test Guide shows how the Calnex Paragon-100G can be used to test T-BC compliance as per G.8273.2 and provides procedures to measure noise generation, tolerance & transfer in addition to packet layer transient response and holdove performance.
The accuracy of Telecom Boundary Clocks (T-BCs) is essential to the successful roll-out of LTE-A and TDD-LTE. This application note describes what a boundary clock is, and explains the critical performance parameters defined in G.8273.2.
This application note describes in more detail the methods for measuring time error transfer of a T-BC, following the recommendations of G.8273.2 Appendix VI. The companion application note is 'Testing a T-BC to ITU-T G.8273.2' (above).
