Configuring PTP

About PTP

Precision Time Protocol (PTP) provides time synchronization among devices with submicrosecond accuracy. It provides also precise frequency synchronization.

Basic concepts

PTP profile

PTP profiles (PTP standards) include:

·     IEEE 1588 version 2—1588v2 defines high-accuracy clock synchronization mechanisms. It can be customized, enhanced, or tailored as needed. 1588v2 is the latest version.

·     IEEE 802.1AS—802.1AS is introduced based on IEEE 1588. It specifies a profile for use of IEEE 1588-2008 for time synchronization over a virtual bridged local area network (as defined by IEEE 802.1Q). 802.1AS supports point-to-point full-duplex Ethernet, IEEE 802.11, and IEEE 802.3 EPON links.

·     SMPTE ST 2059-2—ST2059-2 is introduced based on IEEE 1588. It specifies a profile specifically for the synchronization of audio or video equipment in a professional broadcast environment. It includes a self-contained description of parameters, their default values, and permitted ranges.

PTP domain

A PTP domain refers to a network that is enabled with PTP. A PTP domain has only one reference clock called "grandmaster clock (GM)." All devices in the domain synchronize to the clock.

Clock node and PTP port

A node in a PTP domain is a clock node. A port enabled with PTP is a PTP port. PTP defines the following types of basic clock nodes:

·     Ordinary Clock (OC)—A PTP clock with a single PTP port in a PTP domain for time synchronization. It synchronizes time from its upstream clock node through the port. If an OC operates as the clock source, it sends synchronization time through a single PTP port to its downstream clock nodes.

·     Boundary Clock (BC)—A clock with more than one PTP port in a PTP domain for time synchronization. A BC uses one of the ports to synchronize time from its upstream clock node. It uses the other ports to synchronize time to the relevant upstream clock nodes. If a BC operates as the clock source, such as BC 1 in Figure 1, it synchronizes time through multiple PTP ports to its downstream clock nodes.

·     Transparent Clock (TC)—A TC does not keep time consistency with other clock nodes. A TC has multiple PTP ports. It forwards PTP messages among these ports and performs delay corrections for the messages, instead of performing time synchronization. TCs include the following types:

¡     End-to-End Transparent Clock (E2ETC)—Forwards non-P2P PTP packets in the network and calculates the delay of the entire link.

¡     Peer-to-Peer Transparent Clock (P2PTC)—Forwards only Sync, Follow_Up, and Announce messages, terminates other PTP messages, and calculates the delay of each link segment.

Figure 1 shows the positions of these types of clock nodes in a PTP domain.

Figure 1 Clock nodes in a PTP domain

In addition to these basic types of clock nodes, PTP introduces hybrid clock nodes. For example, a TC+OC has multiple PTP ports in a PTP domain. One port is the OC type, and the others are the TC type.

A TC+OC forwards PTP messages through TC-type ports and performs delay corrections. In addition, it synchronizes time through its OC-type port. TC+OCs include these types: E2ETC+OC and P2PTC+OC.

Master-member/subordinate relationship

The master-member/subordinate relationship is automatically determined based on the Best Master Clock (BMC) algorithm. You can also manually specify a role for the clock nodes.

The master-member/subordinate relationship is defined as follows:

·     Master/Member node—A master node sends a synchronization message, and a member node receives the synchronization message.

·     Master/Member clock—The clock on a master node is a master clock (parent clock) The clock on a member node is a member clock.

·     Master/Subordinate port—A master port sends a synchronization message, and a subordinate port receives the synchronization message. The master and subordinate ports can be on a BC or an OC.

A port that neither receives nor sends synchronization messages is a passive port.

Grandmaster clock

As shown in Figure 1, the clock nodes in a PTP domain are organized into a master-member hierarchy, where the GM operates as the reference clock for the entire PTP domain. Time synchronization is implemented through exchanging PTP messages.

Clock source

The clock source used by clock nodes is 38.88 MHz clock signals generated by a crystal oscillator inside the clock monitoring module of the device.

Grandmaster clock selection and master-member/subordinate relationship establishment

A GM can be manually specified. It can also be elected through the BMC algorithm as follows:

1.     The clock nodes in a PTP domain exchange announce messages and elect a GM by using the following rules in descending order:

a.     Clock node with higher priority 1.

b.     Clock node with higher time class.

c.     Clock node with higher time accuracy.

d.     Clock node with higher priority 2.

e.     Clock node with a smaller port ID (containing clock number and port number).

The master nodes, member nodes, master ports, and subordinate ports are determined during the process. Then a spanning tree with the GM as the root is generated for the PTP domain.

2.     The master node periodically sends announce messages to the member nodes. If the member nodes do not receive announce messages from the master node, they determine that the master node is invalid, and they start to elect another GM.

Synchronization mechanism

After the master-member relationship is established between the clock nodes, PTP sends synchronization messages between the master and member nodes to determine the delay measurement. The one-way delay time is the average of the delay of the transmit and receive messages. The member nodes use this delay time to adjust their local clocks.

PTP defines the following transmission delay measurement mechanisms:

·     Request_Response.

·     Peer Delay.

Both mechanisms assume a symmetric communication path.

Request_Response

The Request_Response mechanism includes the following modes:

·     Single-step mode—t1 is carried in the Sync message, and no Follow_Up message is sent.

This mode is not supported in the current software version.

·     Two-step mode—t1 is carried in the Follow_Up message.

Figure 2 Operation procedure of the Request_Response mechanism

Figure 2 shows an example of the Request_Response mechanism in two-step mode.

1.     The master clock sends a Sync message to the member clock, and records the sending time t1. Upon receiving the message, the member clock records the receiving time t2.

2.     After sending the Sync message, the master clock immediately sends a Follow_Up message that carries time t1.

3.     The member clock sends a Delay_Req message to calculate the transmission delay in the reverse direction, and records the sending time t3. Upon receiving the message, the master clock records the receiving time t4.

4.     The master clock returns a Delay_Resp message that carries time t4.

After this procedure, the member clock collects all four timestamps and obtains the round-trip delay to the master clock by using the following calculation:

·     [(t2 – t1) + (t4 – t3)]

The member clock also obtains the one-way delay by using the following calculation:

·     [(t2 – t1) + (t4 – t3)] / 2

The offset between the member and master clocks is obtained by using the following calculations:

·     (t2 – t1) – [(t2 – t1) + (t4 – t3)] / 2

·     [(t2 – t1) – (t4 – t3)] / 2

Peer Delay

The Peer Delay mechanism includes the following modes:

·     Single-step mode:

¡     t1 is carried in the Sync message, and no Follow_Up message is sent.

¡     The offset between t5 and t4 is carried in the Pdelay_Resp message, and no Pdelay_Resp_Follow_Up message is sent.

This mode is not supported in the current software version.

·     Two-step mode:

¡     t1 is carried in the Follow_Up message.

¡     t4 and t5 are carried in the Pdelay_Resp and Pdelay_Resp_Follow_Up messages.

Figure 3 Operation procedure of the Peer Delay mechanism

The Peer Delay mechanism uses Pdelay messages to calculate link delay, which applies only to point-to-point delay measurement. Figure 3 shows an example of the Peer Delay mechanism by using the two-step mode.

1.     The master clock sends a Sync message to the member clock, and records the sending time t1. Upon receiving the message, the member clock records the receiving time t2.

2.     After sending the Sync message, the master clock immediately sends a Follow_Up message that carries time t1.

3.     The member clock sends a Pdelay_Req message to calculate the transmission delay in the reverse direction, and records the sending time t3. Upon receiving the message, the master clock records the receiving time t4.

4.     The master clock returns a Pdelay_Resp message that carries time t4, and records the sending time t5. Upon receiving the message, the member clock records the receiving time t6.

5.     After sending the Pdelay_Resp message, the master clock immediately sends a Pdelay_Resp_Follow_Up message that carries time t5.

After this procedure, the member clock collects all six timestamps and obtains the round-trip delay to the master clock by using the following calculation:

·     [(t4 – t3) + (t6 – t5)]

The member clock also obtains the one-way delay by using the following calculation:

·     [(t4 – t3) + (t6 – t5)] / 2

The offset between the member and master clocks is as follows:

·     (t2 – t1) – [(t4 – t3) + (t6 – t5)] / 2

Protocols and standards

Configuring PTP message transmission and receipt

Setting the interval for sending announce messages and the timeout multiplier for receiving announce messages

About the interval for sending announce messages and the timeout multiplier for receiving announce messages

A master node sends announce messages to the member nodes at the specified interval. If a member node does not receive any announce messages from the master node within the specified interval, it determines that the master node is invalid.

For the IEEE 1588 version 2 or SMPTE ST 2059-2 PTP profile, the timeout for receiving announce messages is the announce message sending interval for the subordinate node × multiple-value. For IEEE 802.1AS, the timeout for receiving announce messages is the announce message sending interval for the master node × multiple-value.

Procedure

1.     Enter system view.

system-view

2.     Enter Layer 2 Ethernet interface view or Layer 3 Ethernet interface view.

interface interface-type interface-number

3.     Set the interval for sending announce messages.

Adjusting and correcting clock synchronization

Setting the delay correction value

About setting the delay correction value

PTP performs time synchronization based on the assumption that the delays in sending and receiving messages are the same. However, this is not practical. If you know the offset between the delays in sending and receiving messages, you can set the delay correction value for more accurate time synchronization.

Procedure

1.     Enter system view.

system-view

2.     Enter Layer 2 Ethernet interface view or Layer 3 Ethernet interface view.
