As the world prepares for 5G, the levels of synchronization accuracy and speed of data transfer required are increasing exponentially. In response, the ITU-T is enhancing the G.827x series of standards to cover next-generation accuracy requirements—to ensure that Ethernet systems are robust against varying transmission delays and other effects that can significantly disrupt the precise transfer of timing.
The Paragon-neo is the latest platform from Spirent, providing PTP and SyncE testing of speeds up to 100GbE. It’s designed
to meet the stringent test requirements of NEMs who
are developing, verifying and manufacturing devices against enhanced timing standards such as for ITU-T G.8273.2 Class-C/D Boundary Clocks. And for those designing and deploying 5G networks and systems.
What’s more, because high network efficiency and reduced data transmission costs are only possible with highly accurate timing, Paragon-neo offers hardware performance and software test methodologies allowing sub-nanosecond accuracy for the entire test system.
Supporting Your Changing Environment
To meet the timing challenges of 5G deployments, Spirent is committed to providing the most advanced, precise and reliable test solutions to make sure your devices and systems deliver the high quality network services of the future. In a changing world, it’s good to know that some things never change.
