Nir Laufer presents new techniques for highly accurate phase synchronization at the edge

Deploying grandmaster/PRTCs close to end applications addresses strict new timing requirements for small cells and LTE-A base stations

  • Speakers: Nir Laufer, senior director, product line management, Oscilloquartz
  • Topics: Jagged little (sync) pill enabling installation-based networks for accurate phase delivery and assurance
  • When: Tuesday, June 19, 1:40 p.m.
  • Where: WSTS, Doubletree San Jose, San Jose, California, USA

Small cells and LTE-TDD/LTE-A base stations rely on stringent phase synchronization. But packet delay variation and asymmetry make it problematic to deliver accurate phase from the core. In this presentation, Nir Laufer will explain how a new level of precision and reliability can be achieved by locating a “sync pill” (a grandmaster and primary reference time clock in miniature form factor) closer to the end application. Additionally, the "sync pill" can be used for network sync probing and assurance with minimal footprint and cost.

As well as Nir’s presentation, Oscilloquartz will be displaying its new OSA 5430 technology for the first time, the first IEEE 1588 grandmaster clock device on the market with redundant design to support PTP, NTP and SyncE over multiple 10Gbit/s Ethernet interfaces.
