Oscilloquartz Synchronizes Mobile TeleSystems’ Network
Innovative PTP Frequency and Phase Synchronization Solutions Address Growing Demand for Next-Generation LTE Services
We’ve invested in a next-generation network ready for accurate synchronization of phase as well as frequency – ready for LTE-A.
For many years, Oscilloquartz has provided traditional frequency synchronization for our national transport network,” commented Dmitry Shevchenko, leading MTS synchronization expert. “By continuing to invest in Oscilloquartz technology and expertise, we’re ensuring a seamless migration from legacy to next-generation timing. Now, in addition to highly accurate frequency information, phase data can be synchronized to within tolerances of less than a microsecond. This essential component for LTE-A and LTE-TDD services is achieved through grandmaster functionality at the edge of the backhaul network. Supporting both legacy interfaces and the latest PTP technology creates a scalable and highly accurate, end-to-end timing solution. Availability is also improved as the new solution is far less reliant on the GNSS.”
“MTS is a company always looking for ways to offer more to their subscribers – always pushing the boundaries of what's possible,” said Vladyslav Ivanov, business development director, Oscilloquartz. “Our team is intent on helping MTS achieve their ambitions. The task of delivering more to over 100 million customers spread over such an enormous network has been challenging but hugely rewarding. MTS’s footprint extends across the entire country and the CIS. A lot of team work and all of our years of expertize has gone into the task of bringing next-generation synchronicity to an architecture like this. And, of course, our SSU and grandmaster clock technology makes the difference. With temperature-hardened design for total precision and superb holdover performance, it’s enabled us to address the network’s stringent timing demands.”
