To enable 5G in PTP networks every node must be PTP enabled with Full Timing Support which can lead to costly upgrades and even replacement of existing network equipment which results in high costs and often locks the operator into a single vendor.
The biggest challenge delivering time and phase in a network is handling the asymmetries that occur in the network. Frequency synchronization is not affected by asymmetries i.e. different latencies in the uplink compared to the downlink. This means that there will be hidden asymmetries in the network until phase and time are enabled. For time and phase however, network asymmetries generate constant time error.
Signals in GNSS systems are vulnerable as it i easy to intrude via disruption jamming, either by blocking them out completely (“jamming”) or by replacing the GPS signal with a similar false signal that are stronger than the real signal and provide recipients with the wrong position and time (“spoofing”).
Vendor independence for heterogeneous networks to easily operate complex networks with multiple vendors or leased lines.
Mobile operators often have heterogeneous networks and it is common with leased lines from various wholesales operators. For PTP networks these leased lines must have full network update to support full on-path synchronization in 5G but since mobile operators don’t own the lines it can delay the roll out process or severely restrict the available offers for capacity services.
Open and disaggregated: Ability to deploy over existing core and aggregation networks including leased lines. Timing is independent of network vendors, network capacity and network layers.
Proven interoperability: Precision TimeNet could be used as Primary or Complimentary synchronization with proven interoperability with base stations and routers from Nokia, Ericsson, Cisco, ZTE and Huawei. Full PTP functionality developed together with Meinberg.
GNSS independent: GNSS solutions are inherently vulnerable to jamming and spoofing. Regulators, like the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) begins to require a GNSS independent solution in the 5G networks.
Ensures better uptime of critical 5G services: Enhanced multilink and redundancy options improves stability and redundancy in the synchronization network.
High reliability and stability: The base technology has been used for GPS-independent time synchronization in 20 national digital TV networks since 10 years and Net Insight holds 9 patent families related to synchronization in IP and 5G networks.
