ADVA (FSE: ADV) has announced that Play has deployed its Oscilloquartz timing solution to provide LTE Advanced services throughout Poland and prepare its network for 5G, the company said.
The PTP grandmaster with dual integrated GNSS antenna enables Play to deliver the resilient and accurate Precision Time Protocol (PTP) frequency and phase synchronization needed for next-generation connectivity. With its ultra-compact design, the OSA 5405 Series empowers Play to migrate its radio access network from costly GNSS RF antennas and coax cables to standard copper and fiber Ethernet cabling, dramatically reducing capital expenditure and operating expenses. ADVA´s long-term partner NAVI also played a key role in the project.
Built on the environmentally hardened outdoor variant of the OSA 5405 Series, Play´s new synchronization architecture delivers IP-based frequency and phase synchronization. This ensures ultra-precise timing with no jitter or delay, supporting advanced applications and enhanced user experience.
The OSA 5405 Series supports every major GNSS constellation — GPS, BEIDOU, GLONASS and GALILEO — as well as multiple protection options from PTP to SyncE. And, with its compact and environmentally friendly design, it ensures accurate time distribution with the smallest size and power footprint on the market.
ADVA is a company founded on innovation and focused on helping customers succeed. Its technology forms the building blocks of a shared digital future and empowers networks across the globe.
Oscilloquartz is a pioneer in time and frequency synchronization that provides end-to-end synchronization systems that ensure the delivery and assurance of highly precise timing information over next-generation packet and legacy networks.
