Oscilloquartz, an ADVA Optical Networking company, announced today that its OSA 5420 Series has won the 2017 Diamond Technology Reviews award for Active Network Hardware. Organised by the Broadband Technology Report, the award recognises the value of Oscilloquartz’s comprehensive synchronisation toolkit, including recent innovation for precision timing in cable networks.
The OSA 5420 series is a family of cost-effective, mid-scale synchronisation distribution and assurance devices. Following a toolbox approach, the family members of the OSA 5420 series can be utilised in a variety of network synchronisation applications, including IEEE 1588v2 Grandmaster, Boundary Clock, Slave Clock and Assisted Partial Timing Support (APTS). The built-in Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver and Primary Reference Time Clock (PRTC) capability, together with the redundant power supply option, make it ideal for reliable synchronisation delivery.
