1509   Use of reserved domains

Created: 05 Sep 2016

Status: Not Applicable

Part: Part 9-3 (Precision Time Protocol Profile)


Page: 13

Clause: 8


Category: Issue for edition 2 of this part


"Note 1: A clock is settable to any domain number (0 to 255) even if this value is reserved."
This note only says that the settable range of a clock shall be 0..255, regardless if the setting is by a display on the clcok or by network management.
However, IEC/IEEE 61588:2008 prohibits the use of reserved time domains in the range 127-255.


Add to the Note:
The network engineer is advised not to use the reserved value before IEC/IEEE 61588 defines their use, considering the implications. Trespassing could lead to unpredictable behaviour with newer devices.
