This article discusses the evolving transport architecture, covering some of the synchronization distribution problems to many endpoints where mobile backhaul and TDM emulation occur. It shows how synchronous Ethernet fits into both the Ethernet and synchronization architectures, and discusses how this helped development in standardization bodies. Standardization allows the key building blocks of Ethernet silicon and specific timing devices to be developed, which allows a robust system… CONTINUE READING
