Telecom Profile – Without Signaling Configuration Command

The profile is configured with other PTP parameters within a configuration string. In order for the Grandmaster to recognize the slave unit, the Timing Client IP address of the Timing Client needs to be configured at the Grandmaster for the Ethernet network IP protocol communication link. The Sync and Delay_Response rates at the Grandmaster are required to match the Timing Client Sync and Delay_Request packet rates.

ptp slave

The parameters that are required to be configured are the PTP Domain # (0-254), the Sync / Delay_Request packet type as being unicast, the profile type as Telecom Profile, the Delay_Request packet rate and the Announce message type response from the Grandmaster timeout interval.

# config ptp slave 20 0 0 6 10
[domain #=20] [Default Profile = 0 0 (unicast) & (Telecom Profile enabled)] [Delay Req Interval = 6] [Announce Receipt Timeout=10].

Note: The TCA6000 supports Delay Req Interval rates of 32 or 64 pkt/sec are supported and 64 (6) is recommended.

ptp slv dscp

Configures the Differential Service (DiffServ) of the IP packet which transports the PTP event and signaling messages. This should be configured to Explicit Forward (EF) which is a value of 46 decimal.

# config ptp slv dscp 46
