A Concise Guide to Mobile Backhaul Synchronization White Paper
Information Resources  | 
7/3/2014  | 

As the Mobile Backhaul increases bandwidth between radio equipment and core networks to keep up with demand, legacy TDM links are being replaced by more efficient Ethernet links. However, with packet switched networks (PSN) being inherently asynchronous, the question arises as to what could fill the void of providing the tight frequency and phase synchronization required by the mobile base stations and other real-time applications.

Several technologies like IEEE 1588v2 Precision timing protocol, ITU-T G.8261 Synchronous Ethernet and GPS-disciplined clocks are currently available to fill that gap. Since each one has its strengths and weaknesses, and solutions may include a combination of them, Mobile Backhaul Synchronization is currently a hot topic being studied and discussed by standardization bodies and service providers' labs around the world. This white paper provides a concise guide to these new synchronization techniques, with an emphasis on the IEEE 1588v2 Precision Timing Protocol (PTP).
