One-step timestamping of PTP packets has developed to a popular technology in IEEE 1588 aware devices. This hardware-based mechanism allows to disengage a PTP master by reducing the computational load. Especially when using unicast communication mode and high message rates PTP masters may benefit from the additional hardware feature. Based on the existing IPv4 and IPv6 one-step timestamping solution, Oregano Systems enhanced the circuitry to perform hardware-based one-step timestamping for layer 2 PTP packets as well. Naturally, VLAN operation for Layer 2 timestamping is supported as well. The new layer 2 one-step timestamping technology is present in the following products: [more...]
Oregano Systems is a proud to announce its sustaining membership of the SMPTE – Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers. Oregano Systems is actively supporting the work of the respective standardization body within SMPTE towards an IEEE1588 profile tailored to the needs of the broadcasting industry, while enhancing our product portfolio to support this new standard in a timely manner as soon as it is released.
Oregano Systems is proud to announce that our preferred research partner Center for Integrated Sensor Systems from the Danube University Krems received the Best Academic Paper Award at the ISPCS 2013. Their paper “Out-of-band Asymmetry Removal for High Accuracy Clock Synchronization in 100Base-TX” deals with the problem of dynamic asymmetries between two IEEE1588 nodes connected with a 100Base-TX copper connection. Oregano Systems congratulates the authors Thomas Bigler and Reinhard Exel. The paper was published at the 2013 International IEEE Symposium on Precision Clock Synchronization for Measurement, Control and Communication and was partly financed by the province of Lower Austria, the [more...]
The ISPCS Plugfest 2013 focusing on new developments in precise clock synchronization ended this Tuesday. New technologies have been successfully tested. There had been special sessions for the following new areas: Transporting PTP over IPv6. The industry is calling for IEEE1588 solutions supporting IPv6 Using a new network mode called ‘hybrid mode’. Sync messages are transmitted as multicast messages whereas the End-to-end delay mechanism is performed using unicast addresses. Bringing redundancy and reliability to IEEE1588 systems using High availability seamless redundancy (HSR) and Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP) As every year there have been sessions for the default, power [more...]
Today, the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards conformance services for the networking industry, showcased its latest conformance test offering for precision time protocols (PTPs) such as IEEE 1588, C37.238 (Power Profile) and 802.1as “generalized” PTP (gPTP) at the International Symposium for Precision Clock Sources (ISPCS) Plugfest 2013 in Lemgo, Germany. The setup of this conformance test was supported by Oregano Systems by providing IEEE1588 hardware (the syn1588® PCIe NIC) and software (the syn1588® PTP Stack) for these conformance tests.
