Synchronization is creating quite a stir in the mobile backhaul industry as operators are wrestling with a variety of synchronization technology options including Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) and Precision Time Protocol (PTP) a.k.a. IEEE 1588v2. This paper reviews unique microwave backhaul characteristics that need to be taken into account in support of synchronization, and how each particular synch approach can be addressed.
Joint Application Note with Symmetricom and Aviat Networks.
Mobile Backhaul Networks are evolving to packet, driven by 4G evolution, requiring high data and video traffic and growing number of apps, users, smartphones and tablet devices. 1588v2 microwave are a perfect match for Mobile Backhaul evolution. Paper covers 1588v2 overview, unique considerations for microwave and typical deployment scenarios (multi-hop, ring).
