Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Grandmaster with both Frequency and Phase
Our portfolio of synchronization technology offers a complete end-to-end solution for the delivery and assurance of highly accurate timing. It enables fixed network operators and mobile network operators to maximize the value of their existing investments while providing phenomenally precise frequency and phase synchronization needed to support LTE-TDD, LTE-A and eventually 5G mobile services.
For legacy architecture, our OSA 5420 and OSA 5430 series grandmaster clocks preserve and support synchronization on the physical layer. They enable frequency information to be carried over the top of the existing network from the core to the base stations and provide unbeatable scale, supporting thousands of clients on the same device.
As fixed network and/or mobile network operators migrate their infrastructure to support 5G applications, the need to deliver precise phase and time-of-day synchronization becomes front and center. Once again, our solution using OSA 5430 and OSA 5420 series are ideal as grandmaster PRTCs or, when combined with our unique, high-performance cesium clocks, as ePRTC systems.
In addition, OSA's built-in technolgoy with Syncjack™ offers accuracy monitoring, testing and assurance functionality which performs vital clock frequency and phase accuracy measurements, ensuring both PTP and legacy networks are always in sync that meets the stringent timing demands of next-generation services.
