Optical Timing Channel 2.0
Deliver High-performance 5G-quality Synchronization and Timing over DWDM Transport Networks
Supporting network operators’ 5G xHaul strategies, Infinera's OTC2.0 provides a dedicated disaggregated optical timing channel that delivers high-performance synchronization and timing distribution over any optical transport network. OTC2.0 enables network operators to enhance the resiliency of their synchronization and timing networks and decouple timing strategies from total reliance on GNSS-based timing at every network node. OTC2.0 enables network operators to build virtual PRTC (vPRTC) timing cloud architectures with sub-100-ns performance to every network node.
Industry-leading 5G-quality synchronization and timing distribution performance over optical transport networks using a dedicated disaggregated timing channel.
Protection against GNSS outages, spoofing and hacking, and optical network outages with OTC2.0’s enhanced timing channel resiliency features.
Nanosecond-level timing channel performance enabling vPRTC timing cloud architectures for simplified synchronization and timing, network planning, deployment, and operation.
Variety of Applications
5G xHaul, power distribution networks, entertainment and media, financial services, and many more.
Synchronization Distribution in 5G Transport Networks
To deliver the higher performance that new 5G services will require, all aspects of the end-to-end mobile network will require modernization, including the DWDM-based mobile transport network that underpins it.
This e-book explains the challenges involved in delivering 5G-quality synchronization and the toolbox required to create end-to-end synchronization strategies to meet 5G performance demands now and in the future.
