IEEE 1588 protocol software with new features for the telecommunication sector

09-28-2012 11:14 AM CET | IT, New Media & Software

Press release from: IXXAT Automation GmbH

The IEEE 1588 protocol software from IXXAT enables networking devices with accurate and reliable time synchronization for automation, automotive, measurement and telecommunication applications. Depending on the microcontroller system and the type of network employed, IXXAT’s IEEE 1588-2008 PTP software is able to attain time synchronization accuracy in the nanosecond range.

The new version 1.05 now supports the basic requirements of the ITU-T G.8265.1 telecom specification for "Packet Timing Signal Fail Mechanism", "Multi Clock" and "One Way" mode making it an optimal solution for use in telecom applications.

Among the new features of the new version are the ability to re-configure the unicast/multicast mode for the devices during operation, and to support alternative BMCAs (Best Master Clock Algorithm) and custom servo functions. Moreover, the path-asymmetry of the network can be individually configured
for each Ethernet port to allow individual synchronization corrections.
A new PDV filter provides higher synchronization accuracy in legacy networks that employ older switches having no 1588 support. Furthermore, the IEEE 1588 protocol software is available as C source code and can be implemented on any platform. Due to its broad functional range, continuous development and wide distribution, the IXXAT IEEE 1588 protocol software can be considered as the leading 1588 reference implementation. In addition to the IEEE 1588 protocol software, IXXAT also offers protocol implementation as well as hardware and software development services. For more information about the IEEE 1588 products from IXXAT see www.ixxat.com/ieee1588
