  • Synchronization is a service which deliver Frequency/Phase/TimeLike other services , ways to monitor , test and analyze the quality of the service are neededClock Accuracy –Frequency ,phase and time accuracy measurement based on physical signals relative to referenceClock Analysis - Frequency and phase analysis based on packet timing signals measured relative to referencePTP Network Analysis - PTP path monitoring / testing
  • I think this slide is good however there are a few questions… (some of these are tricky)If there is an FSP 150 can they all provide SyncJack?If there is an FSP 150 would we also need to provide a SyncProbe?Do we need a SyncProbe at every location in the this cloud or can we skip some nodes (how do we determine this)?

    3. 3. New Requirement – New Challenges! Time/Phase requirement for NGN are much more stringent! • Frequency G.8261.1 Phase G.8271 16ppb +/- 1.5/1.1usec Even if all phase error is allocated to wander (no static phase error) , MTIE can’t exceed 3 usec 3 © 2013 ADVA Optical Networking.

    4. 4. Why is „In Service“ Sync Assurance is Needed ? • Ensuring synchronization is working as designed is not a trivial task • Network PDV, asymmetry and environmental conditions can effect the synchronization quality • Some way to ensure proper synchronization should be integrated into Sync distribution/delivery functions or accompanied by cost effective Sync assurance tools • Lab test equipment is too expansive for “in service” installation in multiple locations • Other aspects such as power consumption and OSS should also be taken into consideration 4 © 2013 ADVA Optical Networking.

    5. 5. Example #1 - Partitioning across Multiple Administrative Domains (G.8275 Appendix I) • Operators may purchase service from other operators in order to provide access to remote equipment or networks. • A boundary clock can be used to ensure a clean hand-off point to the second network operator.

    9. 9. Example #3 - G.8261.1 Network Limit HMR1 150 usec • FPP : For any window interval of 200 seconds at least 1% of transmitted timing packets will be received within a fixed cluster, starting at the observed floor delay, and having a range of 150 µs (G.8260 floor delay packet population). 200s 9 © 2013 ADVA Optical Networking.
