“Our OSA 5400 SyncModule™ brings something completely new and very valuable to the market. For the first time, third-party technology manufacturers will be able to embed the most advanced synchronization capabilities into their designs and easily control them with our Ensemble Sync Director or their own management system,” said Gil Biran, general manager, Oscilloquartz, ADVA. “With our OSA 5400 SyncModule™, we’re extending the disaggregated approach to building networks into the area of synchronization. The integrated solution gives vendors the ability to instantly inject the most advanced, highly accurate and fully assured timing into their hardware platforms. As our solution utilizes the widely applied, standardized M.2 interface, integration is simple. It can also easily be added to existing designs.”
The trend towards network disaggregation is accelerating innovation and expanding the market for customers. This does, however, create a challenge for technology suppliers when it comes to synchronization. Now, the OSA 5400 SyncModule™ is filling that gap. The low-power M.2 module gives vendors of emerging technologies, such as open RAN and next-generation data center hardware, the ability to quickly harness the benefits of an integrated GNSS receiver, PTP, NTP and assurance engines, as well as full sync management functionality. Featuring multiple interface options for easy integration, the OSA 5400 SyncModule™ comes with an open API for simple configuration. It can also be managed by ADVA’s proven Ensemble Sync Director management system for complete control of the timing infrastructure.
“Cost-effective and hassle-free, our new embedded timing solution brings highly precise and assured synchronization to a whole new market. For companies who are suppliers of 5G RAN hardware or open compute servers, our OSA 5400 SyncModule™ offers major value,” commented Nir Laufer, VP, product line management, Oscilloquartz, ADVA. “Vendors like those, who are not necessarily experts in network timing, now have the opportunity to instantly pour all of our synchronization know-how into their solutions. And that enables customers to choose the ideal components for their specific needs complete with the best available timing.”
