Timing over Packet Demarcation

An Innovative Approach to Synchronization Performance Monitoring in Packet Networks

RAD has developed an innovative ToP performance monitoring technique allowing carriers and service provides to closely monitor the Timing over Packet distribution in their networks, especially mobile backhaul networks implementing 1588-2008 Precision Time Protocol (PTP), making sure it is working well and supplying the required level of performance.

Contrary to existing solutions that are only end-to-end, RAD’s ToP PM solution can provide deep insight to the contribution of each network segment to the overall service degradation, allowing the user to quickly isolate problems and take proactive measures to solve them.
