Oscilloquartz Presentation Outlines Feasibility of Small Cells and IP RAN at ITSF 2016

Industry Expert Will Present Field-Testing and Solutions for Distributing Data Over HDSL and IP

  • Speakers: Djamila Duc, director, business development, Oscilloquartz
  • Topics: Small and Macro Cell Synchronization Case Study
  • When: Tuesday, November 1, 1:45 p.m.
  • Where: International Timing & Sync Forum (ITSF), Hilton, Old Town, Prague, Czech Republic

This presentation from Djamila Duc looks into field-testing to prove the feasibility and performance of small cells and IP RAN as well as the solutions being developed. A major mobile operator in the Middle East is rapidly deploying this technology and is trying optimize the solution by distributing frequency over high-bit-rate digital subscriber line (HDSL) and IP. 

However, reducing the high level of packet delay variation that affects quality is a big challenge. As it is impossible to use SyncE, deep field-testing of Precision Time Protocol over HDSL is required. The adopted solution is a combination that covers the frequency needs for legacy time-division multiplexing and the phase needs for future long-term evolution deployments.
