The Chronos Smart SFP TS is transparent for the IEEE 1588v2 protocol and supports Synchronous Ethernet over a copper connection. This allows operators to utilize copper cables on SFP ports and still meet timing and synchronization requirements for demanding applications like LTE-Advanced in mobile networks. The Chronos Smart SFP is designed in conformance with the Small Form Factor Pluggable Multi-Source Agreement (MSA).
