Timing and Synchronization Testing

Solving the timing challenges of 5G networks, real-world test and standards conformance for Ethernet Sync.

Sync Standards Conformance

Packet-Based Network Sync

Deliver synchronization over packet-based networks, with full stress-test elements. 

Measure Recovered Time of Day

Measure Time Error and frequency (MTIE/TDEV) to specified limits (e.g. G.826x/7x)

Introduce Impairments

Introduce impairments (Time Error, Jitter/Wander) testing device conformance to standards.

Real-World Time Error, PDV Patterns

Replay patterns captured over long periods to prove, troubleshoot devices.

Measure at Air Interface

Measure synchronisation on 4G/5G transmission without having to access the premises.

Mobile Backhaul Networks

Most comprehensive solution for converged mobile backhaul devices, network testing.

Synchronization Testing


Testing for Enhanced Time including Class C and Class D devices.


Testing options for O-RAN.WG4.CONF.0


Testing options for profiles including Broadcast, Industrial and Automotive.
