Clocking across OC3 Link

Should the clocking source (internal) on an OC3 link be on the provider's end and set cpe router to "line"? Why and why not?

Thanks!

Re: Clocking across OC3 Link

Hi Abester,

The CPE end should be line while the provider most likely gets clock from a much more reliable source.

Most providers will use highly accurate crystal oscillators to provide clocking for their SONET/SDH networks. Therefore, it is sensible for CPE to reconstruct the clock signal from the received stream.

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.

Regards,

Paresh
