Oscilloquartz Synchronizes Orange Egypt’s National Network
Complete Timing Solution Enables Next-Generation LTE Services
Our end-to-end timing solution ensures optimum reliability as Orange Egypt rolls out LTE-A services and other applications that require phenomenally precise frequency, phase and time-of-day information.
In October, Orange Egypt became the first mobile operator in the country to acquire a license to operate 4G services. These are now being rolled out with support from the new synchronization network built on the OSA 5421. This advanced PTP grandmaster clock is a compact and cost-effective synchronization distribution and assurance device complete with Syncjack™ technology for continual monitoring. Not only does it deliver the accurate phase and frequency information required for Orange Egypt’s 4G offerings but, with assisted partial timing support and a high-end quartz oscillator, it also provides extended holdover performance in case of GNSS outages. What’s more, the OSA 5421 is optimized for deployment at the network edge, enabling efficient and accurate synchronization.
“Orange Egypt is a company that strives to deliver the very best. They understand that the only way to keep pace with customer demand is by harnessing the latest technology. Our end-to-end timing solution ensures optimum reliability as they roll out LTE-A services and other applications that require phenomenal precision in the delivery of frequency, phase and time-of-day information,” commented Djamila Duc, director, business development, MEA, Oscilloquartz. “We have a long heritage of delivering incredibly accurate and robust timing solutions for mission-critical networks. For this deployment, we worked closely with Orange Egypt’s team to ensure interoperability and a smooth transition. Now they can offer even more valuable SLAs and guarantee customers the highest availability.”
