Synchronization and timing in packet-based mobile backhaul

Clocking data, which has been transmitted natively in TDM networks, requires special attention in new packet switched networks (PSNs) as these are asynchronous by nature and introduce inaccuracies.

This white paper explains the need for packet timing and synchronization in mobile backhaul and reviews the most popular methods in use today.

The transition to packet-based transport is picking up pace as mobile operators, transport providers and wholesale carriers look to benefit from the higher throughout and lower cost per Mbps these next-generation networks offer.
