Synchronization clocks for SONET networks

SONET is not only means of distributing frequency synchronization (just like SyncE), SONET requires frequency synchronization in order to work (unlike SyncE). Wander is induced by pointer activity. Excessive relative wander causes slips in the T1 layer. The slip-rate affects the Quality-of-Service (QoS) perceived by the end-customer!Oscilloquartz offers a complete product range for SONET networks from PRC (Primary Reference Clocks) to NMS (Network Management System) going through TSG (Timing Synchronization Generator), GNSS Clocks (GPS/GLONASS) and SDU (Synchronization Distribution Unit). Sync Equipment are awarded with NEBS level 3.

OSA 5420 Series

Our OSA 5420 series is a family of cost-effective, mid-scale synchronization distribution and assurance devices that bring the power of Syncjack™ to any network. Following a toolbox approach, the family members of the OSA 5420 series can be utilized in a variety of network synchronization applications, including IEEE 1588v2 Grandmaster, Boundary Clock, Slave Clock and Assisted Partial Timing Support (APTS).

OSA 5430

With our OSA 5430, a carrier-grade IEEE 1588v2 grandmaster clock supporting 10Gbit/s as well as 1Gbit/s interfaces with hardware timestamping, cost-effective and accurate synchronization distribution for next-generation technologies such as LTE-A is no longer a challenge. What’s more, its NTP server, multiple BITS outputs and GNSS receiver capabilities, make it also ideal for the smooth upgrade of legacy synchronization architectures.

OSA 3230B PRC and ePRC

Our OSA 3230B PRC is a highly stable and accurate cesium clock that provides a frequency source with an accuracy better than ±1x10-12, together with very high frequency stability. The OSA 3230B ePRC achieves this and more. It meets the much more stringent enhanced PRC requirements, including maintaining sub-nanosecond time deviation (TDEV) for at least 10,000s.
