1588v2

Hi

 

I have been looking at using a Virtual Chassis technology for some 4G basestation backhauling.

 

Of all the Virtual chassis equipment that is out there I cannot see anything with any particular PTP 1588v2 support built in.

I came across a juniper presentation "

ULTRA LOW LATENCY NETWORKING AND THE NEED FOR IMPROVED TIMING" by John Moore.

 

and this talks about the requirement for PTP inside a data center, but doesnt mention any particular hardware.

 

Cisco are pushing the nexus 3000 as this has hardware support for PTP built in.

 

Finding it strange that juniper doesnt have switching hardware equivilent.

 

any comments or recommendations?

Looks like the ACX and MX . The MX supports VC. An SE should know more about this feature.
