Harris Stratex adds synchronization feature to Eclipse Packet Node

To allow operators migrate from existing TDM infrastructure to an all-IP transport network

By CBR Staff Writer

Harris Stratex Networks has introduced a new synchronization feature for its Eclipse Packet Node IP wireless backhaul platform. It allows operators to cross the ‘sync divide’ by providing a component for the migration of existing TDM infrastructure to an all-IP transport network.

Harris Stratex said that the Distributed Sync will be supported by a new plug-in network sync module for the Eclipse Packet Node nodal indoor unit. Distributed Sync offers a synchronization migration path for operators planning to evolve their transport network to all-IP.

The company said that the Distributed Sync complements synchronous ethernet or IEEE 1588v2, and enables operators to delay moving to these IP-based schemes until after their network migration to IP transport is progressed or complete. It offers a reference clock traceable for 2.048/1.544MHz clock output at the base station over a multi-hop, nodal backhaul network without having to use payload capacity,

The Eclipse Packet Node provides a path for operators to introduce packet-based ethernet/IP transport into their network, with migration to all-IP. The platform supports a set of features, including nodal networking, link speeds up to 2Gbit/s, adaptive coding and modulation with XPIC, and full native multi-service support for TDM and Ethernet/IP traffic.
