This section describes how to configure SMPTE-2059-2. An SMPTE-2059-2 network typically uses the BMC algorithm to dynamically establish the master-slave hierarchy. For different types of devices on an SMPTE-2059-2, the corresponding functions need to be configured.
The first step of establishing an SMPTE-2059-2 network is to import time signals from an external BITS clock source. The BMC algorithm can be used to select the grandmaster clock and master clock from SMPTE-2059-2 devices. Alternatively, the grandmaster clock and master clock can be manually configured. On a dynamic SMPTE-2059-2 network, clock source selection is implemented by comparing priorities to ensure the precision of clock signals to the maximum extent.
