An advanced synchronisation measurement analysis software tool, Microchip’s TimeMonitor imports and analyses synchronisation measurement data from several sources. These include dedicated jitter/wander tests used in networks and labs throughout the world, GPS/SSU/BITS equipment capable of making measurements, packet timing data using timestamped NTP or IEEE 1588 packets, and counters using the companion TimeMonitor Measurement application.
Extensive and Flexible Analysis Capability
Phase, frequency, MTIE
MTIE = Maximum Time Interval Error
TDEV = Time Deviation
ADEV = Allen Deviation
MDEV = Modified Allan Deviation
results from multiple measurements can be overlaid on the same graph. Other analysis includes FFTs
TTF = Fast File Transfer
, histograms, and statistics. Frequency can also be computed in seven different ways.
Multiple Vendor Support
Data from a variety of industry-standard jitter/wander test equipment from several vendors can be imported into the application.
The display is customisable and allows the user to have complete control over the graph.
There is an interactive online help system that guides the user through options, as well as describes some of the analysis algorithms.
TimeMonitor Analyser Application
TimeMonitor Analyzer – imports and analyses synchronisation measurement data from a variety of sources and performs a wide range of analysis. Multiple vendor support: counter, jitter/wander test sets, GPS/SSU/BITS.
Multiple Signal Capability
Extensive and Flexible Analysis
Packet Timing Analysis (NTP, IEEE/PTP, QoE)
Test to ITU-T, ETSI, ANSI and Telcordia requirements
Works with TimePictra and TimeScan, and all TimeMonitor applications
TimeMonitor Measurement Application
TimeMonitor Measurement – performs inexpensive multiple channel synchronisation measurements using off-the-shelf counters with live phase/frequency display.
Make jitter and wander measurements with portable, off-the-shelf counters
Up to eight signals measured simultaneously with one computer
Connect telecom traffic signals such as DS1 and E1 signals directly to the counters
TimeMonitor Retrieve Application
TimeMonitor Retrieve collects live or archived measurement data from Microsemi synchronisation equipment.
Collect data or make live measurements using Microsemi network elements
