Historically most of the telecommunications network was based on SONET or SDH, however to reduce the costs and to commoditise the network Ethernet has been widely adopted. Ethernet itself is non deterministic in nature, so features like OAM, 1588 and sync have been added to improve the networks quality and performance.

These additions have helped Ethernet spread to nearly every market and product type Industrial, Military, Medical, Security, IOT, Telecommunications, Transport, Entertainment, Energy, Data Centres, Video and many more.

Typical Application Design
