Advanced high-capacity synchronization solution
Reliable and accurate delivery of synchronization from the core to the network edge is essential to meet the stringent requirements of new mobile, fixed and cable networks. However, the challenges go beyond accuracy. As well as strict precision, network operators need a robust, scalable and cost- effective solution that can work over packet-based networks as well as legacy infrastructure.
ADVA Oscilloquartz’ OSA 5430 is designed to help network operators achieve stringent phase and time synchronization requirements and is the first IEEE 1588 grandmaster clock device on the market to support PTP, NTP and SyncE over multiple 10Gbit/s Ethernet interfaces. The new device is the only synchronization solution of its kind to provide fully redundant hardware, meaning that if one critical module fails, another instantly takes over, ensuring no loss of performance or service delivery. OSA 5430 answers the key challenges facing today’s operators as they roll out next-generation radio access network technologies such as LTE-A and 5G, and address the urgent synchronization needs of cable companies. This device delivers ultra-high synchronization service availability at cost points that are unmatched in the industry Furthermore, OSA 5430 features a modular, scalable design with a completely redundant architecture so if one of the modules fails, another is on standby, guaranteeing no impact on end users.
