Hi Pascal,

PTP is supported on the Summit E4G-200, E4G-400, X770, X670-G2, and X460-G2. Note that if you are using the E4G-200 or X460-G2, there is a clock module that is required to be installed in the switch as well.

Hello Pascal,

Add the reference of PTP on EXOS switch.

Using the Precision Time Protocol

Thanks!

If we are using the Summit 870 in the network: can we use it with only PTP transparent clocking ?

The X870 does not currently support PTP.
