The OSA 5405 creates dramatic reductions in complexity and power requirements as well as lower costs for installation and operation.
The compact design and power-over-Ethernet capabilities of the indoor- or outdoor-mounted OSA 5405 enable synchronization right at the edge of the mobile network. This creates dramatic reductions in complexity and power requirements as well as lower costs for installation and operation. Another key feature of the new technology is IP connectivity. This means that synchronization becomes another element of the internet of things. The OSA 5405’s highly precise GNSS-sourced synchronization is supported by network-based Sync-E and PTP backups. In high-rise buildings it can also deliver synchronization recovered from the GNSS smart receiver over optical fiber. The ADVA FSP Network Manager with comprehensive Syncjack™ assurance guarantees efficient operation. What’s more, the OSA 5405 uses a unique dual GNSS antenna and receiver algorithm to mitigate interference from multipath signals that can affect accuracy, particularly in urban canyons.
“Make no mistake; the launch of our OSA 5405 is a major milestone in the progress towards mass-scale small cell deployment. With its plug-and-play simplicity, miniscule form factor and multiple timing functions in a single device, this is a key technology for 5G networks and the IoT. Currently deployed in trials with major carriers, it will shortly be available to all operators looking to harness next-generation synchronization precisely where it’s needed,” commented Nir Laufer, product line director, Oscilloquartz. “What we’re providing here is unprecedented efficiency, flexibility and simplicity. We have the version with ruggedized housing for outdoor installations and the indoor variant for deployment on the inside of windows. Our OSA 5405 makes accurate and affordable small cell synchronization available for all networks. And it doesn’t just deliver on cost. Improvements to reliability and precision significantly improve customer experience. It also boasts the smallest available size and power footprint, making this the greenest small cell synchronization technology on the market.”
