For the next few months, Light Reading will be operating a Mobile Backhaul Synchronization Briefing Center at http://www.lightreading.com/mobile_bh where you can follow the industry’s progress on deploying 1588v2 in large-scale commercial volumes. To get started, check out these articles and analyst notes for a discussion of the challenges network operators face in deploying Ethernet backhaul and how they have finally begun pushing the technology out of trial mode and into commercial deployments:
- At Last: Ethernet Backhaul Booms for Carriers
- Ethernet Europe: Busting the Backhaul Bottleneck
- Packet Backhaul Busts the 'Pain Barrier'
- P-OTS for Mobile Backhaul
Information is also available directly from the standards bodies and interoperability forums hashing out synchronization issues. Check out these white papers:
- Synchronization in Packet-based Mobile Backhaul Networks.
- Progressing Advanced MPLS & Carrier Ethernet Solutions Public Multi-Vendor Interoperability Test.
