Can a DS1 carried over SONET ever be used as a timing reference?

0

A. Yes. In many applications there is no other choice. Most switch remotes, for instance, obtain their timing from a specific DS1 signal generated by their host switch; so these remotes must line/loop time from the DS1 signal. In addition, DLC equipment, channel banks, and PBXs will not likely have external references and may be allowed to line/loop time from a DS1 carried over SONET. Five years ago all the literature however answered no to this question. See next question.
