Sync Source Selection

The Sync (Synchronization) Source selection provides a priority selection for the TCA8000/8500 Timing Server. The selected clock source is used to provide the clock reference for the IEEE1588v2 (PTP) event messages along with the external timing ports, i.e. T1/E1, 10/5/1MHz and Pulse-per-Second (PPS).

The TCA6000 Timing Client should be configured for “ptp”, i.e. the IEEE1588v2 recovered timing. The TCA8000 Timing Server has multiple source selections. GPS is a Stratum-1 source and should be used as the highest priority sync source selection. The T1/E1 BITS inputs can be used as a secondary source.
