Paragon-100G: How can I run a T-TSC (slave) test?

Paragon-100G allows me to select 'T-TSC Holdover Performance (Clause C.' in the G.8273.2 conformance testing menu, but there is no Slave Clock option in the Test Mode menu.

To run any slave test, simply select the desired test option and choose Boundary Clock for the Test Mode (device type). This will measure the 1PPS output from the slave clock device being tested.

Any relevant masks may then be selected in the Calnex Analysis Tool (CAT) to determine whether the result is Pass or Fail. 

The SyncE and PTP performance requirements for T-TSC devices are specified in G.8273.2 Annex C.
