PTP Configuration Example

The following figure shows a sample configuration using the E4G-200/E4G-400 as a transparent clock, a boundary clock, and ordinary clock slaves.

PTP 1588v2 Configuration Example
../Graphics/PTP_network_02.svg

The IP address of the grandmaster and the IP address of the clock ports in each of the boundary/ordinary clocks are shown in the topology. The IP addresses that are not enclosed in the boxes are assigned to the clock ports added to boundary/ordinary clocks. The transparent clock node can be configured as L2 or L3. In the configuration example below, the transparent clock node is configured as L2.

Note

Note

The grandmaster clock should be reachable from the boundary clock and vice versa. Similarly the ordinary clocks should be reachable from the boundary clock and vice versa. The configuration example below does not consider the provisioning methods used to achieve reachability between the switches, and only limits to the PTP 1588v2 and its associated configuration.
