Exact synchronization and timing have become even more critical as more mobile network operators seek to upgrade their network to support LTE-A and LTE-TDD.
The OSA 5420 series is a major leap forward in terms of capacity. The number of remote clocks that can now be supported has increased to meet the needs of synchronization network architectures with devices often installed at the edge of the network. It provides a new level of flexibility thanks to multiple legacy and next-generation physical synchronization interfaces that fan out for up to 32 outputs. The OSA 5420 also expands PTP and Synchronous Ethernet (Sync-E) capabilities as each unit can handle up to 12 PTP/Sync-E interfaces. The devices come complete with a built-in GNSS receiver and can be configured to operate in grandmaster, assisted partial timing support, and boundary or slave clock modes. Syncjack™ technology is used for timing distribution, monitoring and testing, with all functions supported by ADVA Optical Networking’s FSP Sync Manager, an advanced management platform for timing distribution and assurance. There’s simply no other solution that can integrate as many functions as cost-effectively while providing precise frequency and phase synchronization delivery and assurance.
“Exact synchronization and timing has become even more critical as more mobile network operators seek to upgrade their network to support LTE-A and LTE-TDD,” commented Gil Biran, general manager, Oscilloquartz. “Our OSA 5420 series provides a smooth migration from legacy sync to next generation by supporting both precise PTP and legacy interfaces in the same product. It’s engineered to deliver the incredibly accurate phase and frequency synchronization that next-generation network technologies require. We built a product that provides field-proven sync delivery performance while being incredibly cost-effective. What’s more, with our integrated Syncjack™ technology, operators are able to continuously monitor timing performance while in service without using expensive test equipment. That creates a level of service assurance that’s going to make a big difference across the entire industry – from mobile backhaul to enterprise networks and financial data centers.”
The OSA 5420 series will be showcased live from Tuesday, November 3 until Thursday, November 5 at ITSF 2015 in Edinburgh.
