The challenges of delivering the PTP telecom profile with the required accuracy are important in Ethernet / MPLS networks. There is also a renewed interest in time testing for both network commissioning and troubleshooting.
GNSS is not only critical for verifying the accuracy of protocols such as PTP, SyncE, IRIG-B, 1PPS or NTP, but it is also required for one-way delay (OWD) measurements with two testers and for generating transmission and timing protocols.
Counts, statistics, LEDs provide info about the events and how they were recorded, but they do not say much about how they are distributed in time. This information provides the logger with a representation to track the evolution of key parameters.
The PTP Utility profile is tailored for utility applications, particularly power distribution and smart grid systems, to ensure accurate time synchronization among devices in these critical infrastructures.
