MtronPTI Introduces IEEE-1588 and ITU-T G.8263 Timing Solutions for Packet Switched Networks

ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MtronPTI, world leader in custom frequency control and filter products, announced the XO5x84-1588-R series OCXO (oven controlled oscillator), specifically developed to support Internet Communications Technology (ICT) market applications requiring packet switch timing with IEEE-1588 or ITU-T G.8263 standards.

As 4G / LTE smart phone and tablet Internet activity increase, wireless data bandwidth needs continue to rise dramatically. The ICT industry is responding by switching from mixed voice and data delivered over older methods (ex.: T1/E1) to a merged, data only system using Carrier Ethernet with synchronized packet timing.

MtronPTI's XO5x84-1588-R Series OCXO is specifically designed and certified to support IEEE 1588v2 Stratum 3E of GR-1244-Core, GR-253-Core and ITU-T G.812 Type III Clock packet-based requirements.

According to Joe Doyle, MtronPTI VP of Oscillator Engineering, "Packet timing clocks, distributed through the network from base station to the cloud, are a critical component in delivering quality of service. Choosing low noise and low drift oscillators can significantly reduce network data errors. The XO5x84-1588-R series demonstrates excellent stability: Wander Generation performance meets Stratum 3E requirements of Telecordia GR-1244-CORE." (Figures attached)

"Close relationships with leading ICT infrastructure providers helped MtronPTI expand the reference timing product line," according to Dick Thompson, MtronPTI VP of Sales. "With the XO5x84-1588 family, wireless and networking equipment makers now have complete end-to-end timing solutions available from one supplier."

XO5x84-1588-R is available immediately for applications including IEEE-1588v2 ToP (Timing over Packet) client, Telecordia GR-1244/GR-253 SONET/SDH Stratum 3E system synchronizer timing modules, and ITU-T G.8263 packet slave clock timing cards.
