Symmetricom is participating in Plug-fest, where vendors can test, validate and demonstrate device and system interoperability.
During Plug-fest, Symmetricom is demonstrating its XLi Grand Master Clock and its PackeTime[TM] server card fully integrated into Symmetricom's SSU-2000[TM] Building Integrated Timing Supply Building Integrated Timing Supply (BITS), also called Building Integrated Timing System, is a method for distributing a precision clock among telecommunications equipment. The physical medium is a T1/E1 (DS1) line. (BITS) system, both supporting the IEEE 1588 Version 2.0 PTP, meeting the latest 1588 standards. The PackeTime server card leverages the time gating technology delivering sub-microsecond time accuracy with stability to commensurate with clock modules installed in the communication shelf. The PTP functionality supports the default profile as defined by the 1588 Version 2.0 specification as well as the telecom profile based on the ITU (International Telecommunication Union, Geneva, Switzerland, www.itu.ch) A telecommunications standards body that is under the auspices of the United Nations. Comprising more than 185 member countries, the ITU sets standards for global telecom networks. submission. The clock module will also demonstrate the probe mode of operation to allow time and frequency data to be collected in order to analyze the network capabilities of the next generation network, providing services over the packet networks. This solution is targeted at the telecommunication infrastructure market in order to support the roll out of the next generation network.
The XLi Grand Master Clock is an ultra precise 1588 Version 2.0 PTP clock supporting the latest 1588 Version 2.0 specifications as defined by the standards body. The solution also incorporates peer to peer time delay measurements to facilitate instantaneous calibration of network delays targeted at the industrial automation and power utility markets Further, with its ability to function as both master and slave and available options such as TIET TIET Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology and Time Monitor software for characterizing parameters such as time interval, delays and jitter, XLi Grand Master Clock is an ideal test and validation tool for IEEE-1588 Version 2.0 products and systems. In addition XLi Grand Master clock targets infrastructure applications in core markets.
"Symmetricom is committed to supporting IEEE 1588 Version 2.0 PTP standards to address the telecom and government infrastructure, as well as test and validation markets with complete products and services," commented John Hirsekorn, vice president of sales and marketing at Symmetricom.
Any vendor participating in Plug-fest can test and validate their 1588 version 2.0 products using Symmetricom products that will serve as the 1588 Grand Master clock or a slave clock. Plug-fest integration and interoperability testing will be conducted on October 1 with results shown to conference participants on October 2.
ISPCS 2007 provides a forum for researchers and practitioners from industry, academia and government involved in the area of precision clock synchronization using IEEE 1588 or similar techniques and protocols. The event is sponsored by the Austrian Academy of Sciences The Austrian Academy of Sciences ("Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften") is a legal entity under the special protection of the Federal Republic of Austria. According to the statutes of the Academy its mission is to promote the sciences and humanities in every respect and in , the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society and the National Institute of Standards and Technology National Institute of Standards and Technology, governmental agency within the U.S. Dept. of Commerce with the mission of "working with industry to develop and apply technology, measurements, and standards" in the national interest.
