Oscilloquartz Presents New Methods and Technologies to Enable 5G Networks and New Era of Small Cells

Integrated GNSS Antenna and PTP Grandmaster Delivers Enhanced Synchronization for Emerging Applications

  • Speaker: Opher Ronen, manager, R&D, software, Oscilloquartz, an ADVA Optical Networking company
  • Topics: Synchronization Sources Addressing Synchronization Challenges
  • When: Thursday, August 31, 1 p.m.
  • Where: International IEEE Symposium on Precision Clock Synchronization (ISPCS 2017), Special Industry Session, Monterey Marriott, Monterey, California, USA

Synchronization is a crucial component within telecommunication networks. Today, most networks rely on GNSS-based receivers to deliver precise timing information and a frequency source, and primary reference clocks can be deployed as independent frequency sources, providing holdover when GNSS is unavailable. However, synchronization requirements are rapidly evolving and new solutions are urgently needed to meet the timing requirements of emerging technologies such as 5G cellular networks. Tomorrow’s timing equipment must deliver far more accuracy, while also cost-effectively synchronizing many more devices in ever-more challenging environments.

In this presentation, Opher Ronen will reveal new methods and technologies to address this vital issue. He will demonstrate how recent innovation can meet the challenge of 5G and enable mass roll out of small cells. Such technology includes integrated GNSS antenna and PTP receivers with phenomenally compact design and standard Ethernet/IP connectivity.
