Synchronization in standalone mcbsc

Synchronization can be either ToP synchronization using PTUM cards or PCM based synchronization. For more details
on configuration of PTUM cards for ToP synchronization, refer chapter Enabling the Connectivity for Packet
Synchronization in BSS integration.
There are two synchronization ports (SYNC 1, SYNC 2). The mcbsc BOXs are connected to each synchronization port in
serial.
SYNC-2 port on the first BOX is connected to the SYNC-1 port on the second BOX.
SYNC-2 port on the second BOX will be connected to the SYNC-1 port on the third BOX.
SYNC-1 port on the first BOX and SYNC 2 on the final BOX will be connected to external clock reference.
In PCM based synchronization PCM sync source is connected to sync port1 of first box.

Cables for synchronization are as follows:

Synchronization cabling between mcbsc modules

Example:
For both ToP and PCM based synchronization you need to set the priority as 1 for sync1 as follows:
ZDYM:MCBC,0:EXT,1:PRI=1,;
To create sync cable connection between sync port 0 of BCN_A 0 in MCBC 2 and sync port 1 of BCN_B 0 in MCBC 3,
use the following command:
ZWTA:MCBC,2:BCN_A,0:SYNC,0:MCBC,3:BCN_A,0:SYNC,1;
To delete sync connection between sync port 0 of BCN_A 0 in MCBC 2 and sync port 1 of BCN_B 0 in MCBC 3, use the
following commands:
ZWTB:MCBC,2:BCN_A,0:SYNC,0:;
or
ZWTB:MCBC,3:BCN_A,0:SYNC,1:;
To verify the synchronization configuration, use the following command:
ZDYI;
