SyncE full name is Synchronous Ethernet.It is a method used to distribute stratum 1 traceable frequency synchronisation to packet (Ethernet) nodes that need to communicate with TDM network elements. It is achieved though the physical layer in the same way that SONET/SDH line timing distributes its timing. Simply, it replaces the free – running ±100ppm clock normally supplying the TX Clock to the Ethernet PHYs with Phase – locked loop (PPL) which is governed by ITU-T G.8262.
