Timing and synchronization is a crucial aspect in the operation of various applications such as wireless mobile networks, circuit emulation, and legacy business services. IPITEK's MSP-1588 provides the most cost-effective, most precise, flexible, and application-specific synchronization solution for any network.
IPITEK's MSP-1588 is a performance-centered solution. Therefore, its major functions (such as PTP time stamping) are implemented in hardware to ensure the maximum possible clock accuracy. Because IPITEK's MSP-1588 supports many features and capabilities, it achieves nanosecond-level accuracy under harsh and unpredictable network conditions (ITU G.8261 defined traffic cases as one example). At such performance, and given the dynamic network conditions it has been tested under, the MSP-1588 far exceeds the performance requirements of the most stringent applications.
IPITEK’s MSP-1588 enables migration from legacy networks to IP/Ethernet transport networks. For example, existing 2/3G and emerging 4G wireless mobile networks, including Frequency Division Duplexing (FDD) (GSM, WCDMA, UMTS, etc) and Time Division Duplexing (TDD) (WiMAX, LTE, etc) are systems that demand microsecond-level clock synchronization (usually supplied by the legacy SONET/SDH network). These systems can now rely on the MSP-1588 to supply a telecom-grade timing source to ensure non-stop error-free operation after moving from legacy SONET/SDH equipment.
