The course provides the participants with specific knowledgeÂ on synchronization distribution solutions in packet networks.Â It covers the necessary arguments to the engineering departmentÂ on how to design properly the network synchronizationÂ based on standard Sync-E and IEEE-1588. The course alsoÂ analyzes how to improve the quality of the synchronous network,Â for example aiming to reduce the PDV. Finally, the courseÂ provides useful troubleshooting procedures.
