Synchronous Ethernet Devices Advance 4G/5G Mobile Networks

Integrated Device Technology’s Synchronous Ethernet solution for 4G/5G mobile networks using Marvell's Alaska X family of devices has been pre-tested to pass all ITU-T G.8262 compliance testing including wander transfer, tolerance and generation. It features the Marvell 88X3340P Alaska X 10Gigabit Ethernet PHY and IDT 82P33831 synchronization management unit.


Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) provides the ability for frequency distribution and synchronization over Ethernet-based packet networks. SyncE helps service providers meet the challenges of increasing bandwidth, coverage and mobile application layer services which require high-accuracy synchronization. In addition, SyncE improves the reliability of time synchronization of 4G/5G base stations working in conjunction with IEEE 1588.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The two companies have also released a white paper titled SyncE Wander Testing for Marvell 88X3340P and IDT 82P33731 that highlights challenges solved by the joint solution to achieve standards compliance and includes relevant testing data and design specifications, to aid customers. The paper details the first of several planned pre-tested solutions to demonstrate system performance and provide technical guidance to simplify customers' design efforts. 


If your curiosity or thirst for more knowledge nags, you can download datasheets, the whitepaper, and more information.
