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.
