Abstract

This document introduces a method for transporting PTP messages over an MPLS network supported by an Ethernet physical layer. The MPLS layer itself is not used to carry the PTP messages with this method; instead, a link local Ethernet channel is used. Several advantages related to this method are highlighted in this document. The method targets in particular telecom applications requiring accurate phase/time synchronization, with "link-by-link" PTP architectures, where all the network nodes support a PTP function, such as Boundary Clock or Transparent Clock.
