... these trials show how our OSA 5420 Series can be used in a host of scenarios and multi-vendor architectures to support a comprehensive range of profiles.
EANTC unveiled the results of its vendor-neutral interoperability trials at MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress in Paris, France. In the report, Oscilloquartz’s solution featured in all successful trials of clock synchronization equipment, including those testing the ability of boundary clocks to compensate for delay asymmetries in multi-vendor environments and those evaluating boundary clock holdover performance when GNSS is unavailable. Both full and APTS setups were used, as well as PTP deployments at the network edge for legacy networks supporting only Synchronous Ethernet.
“One interesting aspect of these tests was how well our OSA 5421 was able to deliver high-quality sync distribution between different third-party devices while simultaneously mitigating the difference between profiles. For us, this underlines the value our technology offers in multi-vendor systems,” commented Laurent Gallet, senior solution engineer, Oscilloquartz. “It’s very satisfying to see our technology being put through its paces on the industry’s center stage. These rigorous trials involving an array resiliency scenarios and a wide range of combinations with other vendors’ equipment really do provide the ultimate test. We believe the OSA 5421’s success here highlights its unique value for service providers looking to harness overlay APTS in their deployed networks.”
