Ether.Genius Synchronization

ALBEDO Ether.Genius is an multitechnology tester equipped with all the features to install and troubleshoot telecom networks based on Gigabit Ethernet (GbE),Synchronous Ethernet (SYNCE), Precision Time Protocol (PTP IEEE 1588), E1, 2Mbit/s, Jitter, Wander, Datacom, C37.94 test, nx64k, Voice Frequency and more.

You may buy just a last generation dual port GbE tester --with exactly the same specification than ALBEDO Ether.Giga-- and then you may add any technology just when you need it by a simple and easy soft upgrade to get the new firmware, to include the new funtionalities.
