Adva timing technology synchronises major US 5G network

Tuesday 3 December 2019 | 13:37 CET | News
Adva announced that a major US communication service provider (CSP) is deploying its timing technology to synchronise national 5G services. The OSA 5420 Series of grandmaster clocks with GPS receivers is delivering highly accurate and reliable phase and frequency synchronisation to the edge of the CSP’s network, enhancing LTE connectivity and enabling mass 5G rollout. 

With its fully assured PTP timing and extended holdover performance, the OSA 5420 ensures availability by removing vulnerability to GPS outages. Enhanced robustness and precision are key to supporting the spectrum utilisation needed for 5G mobile, home and business applications.

The OSA 5420 Series supports the latest ITU-T PTP telecom profiles and offers flexibility by using Synchronous Ethernet and IEEE 1588v2 PTP over IPv6. The platform provides the CSP's network with the highest availability thanks to its holdover performance based on high-end quartz oscillator technology. 

The OSA 5420 comes with Syncjack assurance technology that alerts the CSP’s operations teams to any issues before services are affected. With its modular design, it also offers easy scalability with support for additional Gigabit Ethernet and BITS interfaces.
