Accelerate your 5G rollout through secure GNSS/GPS independent synchronization

Net Insight’s Precision TimeNet is GNSS/GPS independent and delivers PTP time services that meets the strict synchronization requirements for 5G and TDD Networks. The solution works over existing IP networks without requiring full timing support PTP in every intermediate node. The solution has been developed together with and for MSOs to provide an overlay time synchronization service that is disaggregated from underlying network and works over any architecture including leased line capacity and microwave links. Through an overlay service-oriented approach to provide 5G time synchronization out to base stations or the radio access networks, Precision TimeNet enables an open and vendor agnostic network infrastructure.

The solution provides high scalability and is resilient to both node, link and clock failures. It is interoperable with PTP and can work together with PTP and GNSS solutions. For MSOs, Precision TimeNet is flexible and can be used in different scenarios: as the main time synchronization throughout the entire network, as a complement to existing GNSS or PTP implementations or as a backup that at any time can be scaled up to a complete solution. The solution enables operators’ 5G TDD time synchronization to grow and develop independent of the network transport, which allows for virtualization and cloud solutions.


Why this is important to you

How to secure critical 5G services with GNSS/GPS independent synchronization

To successfully introduce new critical services and applications that drive RoI will demand a time synchronization solution working independent of GNSS/GPS over existing network.

How to accelerate your 5G TDD rollout

Avoid time-consuming and costly forklift upgrades by introducing an overlay synchronization solution that is plug-and-play and runs over your existing network.

How to master and measure your synchronization

Lack of accurate synchronization will cause service interruption and damage your 5G network investments. Real-time visibility and easy trouble-shooting is key elements to secure reliable services and your RoI.

How to assure a future-proof synchronization solution

Traditional PTP with FTS  will drive CAPEX and OPEX, introduce new network complexity, force vendor lock-in and exclude leased-line capacity.


Choose a futureproof 5G synchronization solution to help you deliver accurate time, independent of GNSS/GPS over your exsting network

With Precision TimeNet, you can secure a cost-efficient and futureproof synchronization solution for your 5G network. Increase service reliability and availability by growing more independet of GNSS/GPS. Accelerate your 5G rollout by delivering accurate time over your existing network and bridge your time-gaps over leased-line and non-PTP enabled infrastructure.
