Packet infrastructure relies on Precision Time Protocol (PTP) to synchronize timing devices across the network. Two essential components of the hierarchical synchronization architecture are slave and boundary clocks. A slave clock depends on a master clock for its accuracy, whereas a boundary clock can act as either a destination or source of synchronization information. Typically, a boundary clock has multiple network connections and is used to eliminate static and dynamic fluctuations in communication latency, which are typically generated by routers and similar devices.
With our slave and boundary clock solutions, ensuring cost-effective and reliable synchronization of your base station clocks is no longer a challenge.
"This family of compact and cost-effective synchronization distribution and assurance devices is ideal for the most stringent timing applications and offers a unique level of deployment flexibility."
Our OSA 5410 Series as a PTP slave is capable of translating between PTP and Sync-E/BITS/CLK/PPS outputs.
Addressing all synchronization network needs
Our timing technology portfolio offers an unrivalled choice of solutions for all slave clock and boundary clock requirements. All of our advanced and highly efficient PTP grandmaster and GNSS receivers can be configured in slave or boundary mode. Now you can choose unbeatable hardware redundancy, unrivalled capacity or the industry’s most compact designs as you look to deliver frequency, phase and time-of-day over a multitude of output ports featuring a wide variety of formats.
Controlled by our FSP Network Manager and Sync Manager, our technology offers superior management and synchronization monitoring capabilities.
Compact, versatile and cost-efficient
Our OSA 5410 Series meets the demands of the most challenging slave and boundary clock deployments. This family of compact and cost-effective synchronization distribution and assurance devices is ideal for the most stringent timing applications and offers a unique level of deployment flexibility. It can be utilized as a client device or, thanks to its built-in GNSS receiver and grandmaster clock capability, it can be a source for frequency, phase and time-of-day delivery, as well as a measurement reference for Syncjack™ tools.
