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.
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.
