Many instances configurations are supported on SFN7000 and later series adapters.

Example using multiple types of sync module, plus multiple instances of the same type of sync module:

  • Three PTP sync modules are instantiated using the sync_module option:
    • Each instance is allocated to a different PTP domain using the ptp_domain option.
    • All instances are configured to act as a PTP slave by using the ptp_mode option in the generic [ptp] section.
    • Any PTP traffic is transmitted using hybrid mode by using the ptp_network_mode option in the generic [ptp] section (see Hybrid Mode).
  • A PPS sync module is instantiated using the sync_module option.
  • An NTP sync module is instantiated using the sync_module option:
    • The key-id and key-value are set for authenticating with NTP using the ntp_key option.
  • A Freerun sync module is instantiated using the sync_module option.
