Oscilloquartz's Acquisition of Time4 Systems

  1. 1. August 2015 Time4 Systems Acquisition Overview
  2. 2. © 2015 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential.2 Time4 Systems Overview • Start-up company in Finland developing cost-effective synchronization solutions for access networks • All together 6 people, acting as self-contained R&D team • Self-funded setup – founders funding • Two solutions • Mini-GM and GNSS in SFP format – ready for release • Mini-GM integrated in GNSS antenna – prototype • High level of interest from various vendors and operators
  3. 3. © 2015 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential.3 Application Radio Interface Backhaul Frequency Phase Frequency Phase CDMA 2000 ±50ppb ±3 to 10µs GPS GPS GSM/WCDMA ±50ppb n/a ±16ppb n/a LTE (FDD) ±50ppb n/a ±16ppb n/a LTE (TDD) (large cell) ±50ppb ±5µs ±16ppb ±1.1µs LTE (TDD) (small cell) ±50ppb ±1.5µs ±16ppb ±1.1µs LTE-A MBSFN ±50ppb ±1 to 5µs ±16ppb ±1.1µs LTE-A CoMP* ±50ppb ±500nsec to 5µs ±16ppb 500ns - ±1.1µs LTE-A eICIC* ±50ppb ±1 to 5µs ±16ppb ±1.1µs Sync Application Challenge Addressed * The performance requirements of the LTE-A features are under study by 3GPP The new phase requirements of +/-500ns to 1500ns requires a new timing distribution architectures and new standards!
  4. 4. © 2015 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential.4 Implementation Options for RAN Sync • Option 1 – GPS/GNSS everywhere • GNSS in every base station • Very expensive • No protection in case of local GPS/GNSS outage • Option 2 – PTP (& Sync-E) everywhere • Full on path support (G.8275.1) – GNSS+GM in the core – chain of BC/TC • Require upgrading the entire network – very expensive • Option 3 – PTP over the last mile • GPS+GM in the mobile aggregation • Most cost effective solution • Offer protection and scalability Cost GNSS everywhere Small-scale GM PTP everywhere (full on path support ) PTP Support High Low None Full
