Ether.Sync: time-after-time

ALBEDO Ether.Sync is a handy tester equipped with all the features required to deploy and troubleshoot SyncE, PTP and GbE networks. Ether.Sync has the functionalities you need to quickly validate the quality of the synchronization and the performance of Ethernet services in fixed and mobile networks.

Synchronous Ethernet and Presision Time Protocol




Sync-E, when time matters

Synchronous-Ethernet has been selected to transport simultaneously customer payloads and bauckhaul timing signals

Synchronisation is demanded by telecom operators to support 3G/LTE mobile networks and providing Circuit Emulation services. Synchronization is also demanded by electrical companies to investigate power system incidents that may occur in substations and event time-stamping.

To satisfy these demands SONET/SDH/PDH has been used for many years as timing source, the problem is that these technologies have declined so quickly and in some case fully replaced by Ethernet. that many CTOs would like to see Ethernet not only transporting data/voice/video, but also providing timing and OAM functions to finally remove existing TDM infrastructures.

Synchronous-Ethernet is the technology that can do it simultaneously while Ether.Sync is the tester you need to deploy and troubleshoot these new installations. It includes SyncE and PTP test procedures and all common features of GbE testers including RFC2544 and eSAM, this is why you can now manage ANY Ethernet network.

Case studies

  • (CONTROL) 'Testing PTP performance with sampled value traffic demonstrate the benefit of a system verification tests of events in power substations'
  • (LAB) 'prepare a SyncE Master clock emulator to approve the new AlcaLucent LTE station, please check external clock references'
  • (STRATEGY) 'we have to remove those TDM lines we use only to synchronize; as migration towards SyncE has been decided'
  • (MANAGEMENT) 'engineers must be ready and able to troubleshoot any Ethernet network'
  • (ENGINEER) 'yes boss, we are willing to do it, but we just need a PTP master/slave tester'
  • (OPERATIONS) 'we have to roll-out the new of LTE base stations with Synchronous Ethernet'

Full Ethernet field test

Laboratory and Field technicians that are validating Mobile Backhaul and Electrical Power telecontrol systems can now use Ether.Sync.

  • Synch: G.8261, G.8262, G.8264
  • SyncE MTIE/TDEV measurement
  • Ethernet wander analysis / generation
  • Full IEEE 1588v2 support decoding
  • Clocks: SyncE, E1, T1, 2048kHz, 1544kHz, 10MHz, pps
  • Line Measurements: Frequency-MHz, offset-ppm, drift-ppm/s
  • RFC2544 symmetric / asymmetric
  • PTP monitor / master / slave modes
  • RFC 2544, Y.1564, MPLS
  • VNC remote control


Dear Customer,

The good news is that -despite complexity increases- any Ethernet network can be tested with Ether.Sync a unique field tool adapted for harsh environments.

I would also like to remark the quality of our instruments because ALBEDO not only designs 100% of the software, firmware and hardware, but we are one of the few world' T&M companies that also manufacture to control the highest standards of quality.

Kind Regards,

Sales Director
