The ARROW 12xETEC introduces several key features that are critical for metro transport equipment: fully digital DS3/E3 desynchronizers requiring no external Phase Locked Loops (PLLs); fast-locking DS3/E3 digital mechanisms for Automatic Protection Switching (APS); and bi-directional jitter attenuation, allowing use of lower cost Line Interface Units (LIUs).
1kHz are generated from the master clock without the need for an external Phase Locked Loop (PLL) reducing cost and power consumption.
