Working with a current differential protection scheme or migrating to circuit emulation services with an IP/MPLS core? One way latency and asymmetry measurement will become increasingingly important to ensure proper operation of the teleprotection network. As IP/MPLS expands 1588v2 synchronization will be a natural fit to augment synchronization needs. Ether.Genius encompasses both legacy and next generation requirements in a compact and robust highly portable package.
Ether.Genius is a monolithic handheld tester suitable for lab or field use that can be fully equipped to cover serial Datacom (RS-232, X.21, V.35, RS-422), C37.94, G.703 codirectional, T1/E1, Ethernet/IP, 1588v2 and SyncE. It is battery operated, compact (only 2.2 lbs) and robust for all operating environments. The highly accurate time base can be enhanced with a built in GPS receiver and OCXO or Rubidium references to get timing accuracy of several nanoseconds. The OCXO and Rubidium references have holdover capability for testing in locations without GPS coverage. All interfaces are built in so there is no need to manage clumsy hardware modules.
