New Sync Probe Device Brings Advanced Precision Time Protocol Delivery and Assurance to Any Network

Norcross, Georgia, USA. October 30, 2012. ADVA Optical Networking today launched the FSP 150SP, a sync probe device that radically simplifies the deployment and maintenance of 4G mobile networks. Featuring a Precision Time Protocol (PTP) clock probe that simultaneously supports Synchronous Ethernet and IEEE 1588v2, and a built-in GPS receiver, the FSP 150SP provides time synchronization and assurance across multi-vendor mobile backhaul infrastructures. This comprehensive capability enables backhaul service providers to offer synchronization as a service, something that has not been possible before.

"As the industry continues to drive towards LTE and an Evolved Packet Core, precise timing is a critical stumbling block," said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. "Service providers need to do more than simply bring fiber to the cell tower; they also need to deliver precise time-of-day information for phase alignment between adjacent base stations. This is the primary goal of our FSP 150 platform and its new member, the FSP 150SP. For the first time, backhaul service providers will be able to deliver precise timing information over a multi-vendor Carrier Ethernet infrastructure. Legacy T1/E1 solutions can be decommissioned and GPS receivers are no longer needed at every base station. Our Syncjack(TM) functionality and the corresponding end-to-end management will unlock substantial new revenue opportunities for value-added mobile backhaul services."

The FSP 150SP forms an integral part of the FSP 150 family, an intelligent Ethernet access, backhaul and aggregation solution supporting Syncjack(TM) timing distribution and assurance. The new family member now brings Syncjack(TM) technology to every node in a network, ensuring comprehensive end-to-end management, monitoring and testing. Whether a greenfield installation, or an older first generation Carrier Ethernet network, all can now be instantly upgraded to enable new revenue from delivery of SLA-based synchronization services with both PTP and SyncE network monitoring and performance analysis. Precise clock accuracy measurements and enhanced statistics can be gathered with external, internal and GPS references, or even when no synchronization reference is available.

"The need to evolve from synchronization based on E1s to new and alternative synchronization standards is common to all mobile operators evolving their packet backhaul networks," said Patrick Donegan, senior analyst, Heavy Reading. "While some want to manage this new capability entirely themselves, many mobile operators want to outsource some or all of that to their wholesale backhaul providers.  A solution that supports all the major synchronization standards, complete with service assurance that the synchronization service is meeting SLA requirements, is an important contribution to the continued cost and performance optimization of mobile backhaul networks world-wide."
