ITU-T G.8262 Synchronous Ethernet Industrial Ethernet Switches for Time synchronization and real-time performance

California, U.S.A., October 2017 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions is proud to announce one of “Industry’s first” industrial Ethernet switches supporting ITU-T G.8262, Synchronous Ethernet Industrial switches.

Synchronous Ethernet, also referred as SyncE, is an ITU-T standard for networking devices that facilitates the transference of clock signals over the Ethernet physical layer. Ethernet Direct SyncE industrial switches provide a synchronization signal to time-sensitive networks. The Synchronous Ethernet signal transmitted over the Ethernet physical layer should be traceable to an external clock, ideally a master and unique clock for the whole network. There are numerous applications which include cellular networks, access technologies such as Ethernet, and applications such as IPTV or VoIP.

Remarkable Features:

  • Supports ITU-T G.8262, Synchronous Ethernet
