Oregano Gbit Switch

syn1588® Gbit Switch

Oregano Systems‘ syn1588® Gbit Switch offers the standard 8+1-port 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet switch functions as well as the IEEE1588-2008 Transparent Clock function. It offers an amazing timestamping accuracy while supporting high messages rates simultaneously on all ports.

System Features

  • IEEE1588-2008 end-to-end transparent clock
  • Eight 10/100/1000 Mbit/s copper ports
  • One uplink port suited for SFP modules
    • 1000BASE-X (fiber) or 1000BASE-T (copper) SFP modules supported
  • 2 ns timestamping accuracy (!)
  • No configuration required – ready to be used
  • High quality local oscillators available optionally (OCXO)
  • Purely hardware based (on-the-fly) packet processing of IEEE1588 packets
    • No additional delay for IEEE1588 packet processing on switch
    • Maximum event rate simultaneously on all ports in parallel
    • Extremely high PTP event message rates supported concurrently on all ports
  • Manageable via SNMP


Application: Distribute highly accurate time in complex networks to IEEE1588 slaves
IEEE1588 nodes (e.g. PCs equipped with the syn1588® PCIe NIC) synchronize their local hardware clock with an accuracy of 10 ns or better to the absolute time information distributed by an IEEE1588 grandmaster over a complex network using the syn1588® Gbit Switch as a transparent clock (TC). This dramatically increases the clock synchronisation performance.


The syn1588® Gbit Switch is a standard 8-port 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet switch enhanced by an IEEE1588-2008 End-To-End Transparent Clock function. The unit is equiped with ruggedised RJ45 connectors suited for industrial applications.
The syn1588® Gbit Switch is available in a standard 19″ rack mount case (1 HE).

Performance without compromise
The syn1588® Gbit Switch offers an amazing timestamping accuracy of 2 ns. The purely hardware based IEEE1588 packet processing engine operates non-intrusively supporting up to 256 messages/sec PTP event message rates simultaneously on all ports. Optionally, high quality local oscillators will increase the accuracy even further in case of heavily loaded networks with residence times in the millisecond range.
