Oregano Systems‘ syn1588® Gbit Switch offers the standard 8+1-port 100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet switch function as well as the IEEE1588-2008 Transparent Clock function. It offers an amazing timestamping accuracy while supporting high messages rates simultaneously on all ports.


The syn1588® Gbit Switch is a standard 8-port 100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet switch enhanced by an IEEE1588-2008 End-To-End Transparent Clock function. The unit is equipped with standard RJ45 connectors suited for industrial applications. The 9th port is of SFP type suited for 1000BASE-X/T modules.  The syn1588® Gbit Switch is available in a standard 19″ rack mount case (1 HE).


Performance without compromise

The syn1588® Gbit Switch offers an amazing timestamping accuracy of 2 ns. The purely hardware based IEEE1588 packet processing engine operates non-intrusively supporting more than 256 messages/sec PTP event message rates simultaneously on all ports. Optionally, a high-stability local oscillator will increase the accuracy even further in case of heavily loaded networks with residence times in the millisecond range.


Check out our syn1588® Application Note: Performance Evaluation of Multiple Cascaded syn1588 E2E TC which shows the exceptional performance even if there are more than 10 syn1588® E2E TCs cascaded without deteriorating the synchronization accuracy even if the network is loaded with other traffic in parallel to PTP!

syn1588® Gbit Switch – Applications

Application: Distribute highly accurate time in complex networks to IEEE1588 slaves

IEEE1588 nodes (e.g. PCs equipped with the syn1588® PCIe NIC) synchronize their local hardware clock with an accuracy of 10 ns or better to the absolute time information distributed by an IEEE1588 grandmaster over a complex network using the syn1588® Gbit Switch as a transparent clock (TC). This dramatically increases the clock synchronization performance.
