Introducing the most compact sync solution for energy and broadcast networks

555 views

Published on

Our compact Oscilloquartz PTP timing technology now complies with the latest PTP profiles for time, frequency and phase synchronization in both power utility and broadcast networks. By extending the capabilities of our pluggable OSA 5401, the market’s smallest PTP grandmaster clock, and the highly versatile OSA 5405, we’re enabling utility and broadcast networks to achieve sub-microsecond synchronization. Now electricity companies can harness the accuracy needed for smart power grids, and media enterprises can meet key timing challenges.
