YTL Communications uses ADVA timing solution in LTE-A network

ADVA (FSE: ADV) has announced that YTL Communications has deployed its Oscilloquartz synchronization technology to support the nationwide rollout of LTE-Advanced services, the company said.

The OSA 5410 and OSA 5420 Series create an end-to-end timing solution that delivers the highly precise phase and frequency synchronization needed for next-generation mobile and broadband connectivity. ADVA´s Precision Time Protocol (PTP) grandmaster clocks and GNSS receivers provide sub-microsecond accuracy as well as an unprecedented level of robustness and scale. What´s more, the technology´s flexibility and operational simplicity enables a distributed timing architecture with synchronization at the edge of the mobile backhaul network and helps YTL Communications smoothly transitions its legacy infrastructure.

YTL Communications´ new synchronization network is built on the OSA 5410 and OSA 5420 Series, a family of cost-effective, mid-scale synchronization distribution and assurance devices. Following a toolbox approach, this technology can be utilized in a variety of network timing applications, including IEEE 1588v2 grandmaster, boundary clock, slave clock and assisted partial timing support.

Engineered for deployment in a wide range of locations, the OSA 5410 and 5420 range enables YTL Communications to efficiently distribute synchronization from the network edge. Integrated Syncjack™ technology, which continually monitors synchronization performance while in service, enhances the robustness of the solution. ADVA´s Malaysian partner Preciso Technology Sdn Bhd also played a key role from conducting PoC trials to supporting the installation.
