Our demos will show that we’ve created a complete synchronization solution – a family of devices that makes precise, resilient and affordable timing available for every industry.
Further enhancements to the OSA 5401 include Layer 3 multi-cast functionality for financial and enterprise applications, as well as remote authentication and logs for improved manageability and security. Improvements have also been made to the OSA 5401’s GNSS capabilities, such as an elevation mask, a signal-to-noise ratio mask and fixed positioning, which enables more accurate time and frequency recovery, even in challenging environments such as urban canyon installations. Upgrades to the OSA 5420 series mean that it can now function as a high-capacity Network Time Protocol (NTP) server or PTP grandmaster in the same device, or even over the same port. What’s more, it can now support different types of line cards, including multiple 1Gbit/s ports used for PTP, NTP and Sync-E, as well as BITS, pulse-per-second, time-of-day and clock interfaces. This single box for all synchronization applications dramatically reduces cost and enables customers to protect their investment in NTP while planning future migration toward PTP.
“We’re excited to present our latest advancements to the industry at ITSF. Our demos will show that we’ve created a complete synchronization solution – a family of devices that makes precise, resilient and affordable timing available for every industry,” commented Gil Biran, general manager, Oscilloquartz. “With the OSA 5420 range, we’ve taken the Swiss army knife strategy even further, so that a single device now supports all sync technologies. It gives operators a one-box solution for overlay networks with different requirements. With its NTP server and GNSS receiver capability, including multiple legacy and next-generation synchronization fan-out options, our OSA 5420 series is ideal for deployment in legacy synchronization architectures. It also offers the freedom to locate sync devices at any point in the network, which further reduces capital and operational expenditure.”
Showcases will take place throughout the day in booth 5 from Tuesday, November 1 until Thursday, November 3. As well as the demonstrations, there will be presentations delivered to the entire conference by several of Oscilloquartz’s leading experts in timing and synchronization.
