Synchronization Solution For Blue Light Networks

Secure communication with GNSS/GPS independent time synchronization designed for mission critical services

Home » 5G Home » Critical Networks » Blue Light Networks


Reliable Blue light services are critical to communities worldwide

Blue light organizations worldwide need reliable and secure communication. The common standard is Tetra which requires accurate time synchronization. While GNSS have been used for its accuracy and flexibility, governments and Blue light organizations have realized the vulnerability of such solutions and are looking for GNSS/GPS independent alternatives. Future Blue light networks will increasingly use 5G and are contributing to the demand for accelerated 5G rollouts as their need to update their public safety broadband networks is rising. 5G has the same requirement as Tetra for very accurate time synchronization.

Bringing mission critical services like Blue light communications increases the focus on service availability, security and reliability in future 5G networks. To coop with both indoor and outdoor environments make the use case even more complex for GNSS/GPS receivers.

How to increase service security and reliability through GNSS/GPS independence

Conflicts and tense geopolitical situations have made operators aware of the vulnerability of GNSS solutions and that satellite signals are easily jammed or spoofed. Several countries have mandated that all 5G deployments need to be GNSS independent for the operator to receive a license. Increase service security and reliability through increased GNSS/GPS independence or redundancy.

How to secure critical service availability

Accurate time needs to be available everywhere in the network and asymmetries and network failures in the underlying infrastructure must not be allowed to interrupt or disturb the timing distribution.

How to take full ownership of your synchronization

Time accuracy and phase synchronisation requirements are much higher in critical networks thus time synchronization is a system critical function with high impact on service performance and delivery. Synchronization needs to be handled independent of underlying infrastructure and should include leased line and SLA support.


Net insight’s synchronization solution, Precision TimeNet, is an innovative time synchronization solution that leverages existing telecom networks without depending on GNSS/GPS.

In doing so, it enables the accuracy, security, and low latency operators need to accelerate 5G deployment without introducing further complexity or requiring costly infrastructure upgrades. Precision TimeNet is a fully open, standards-based solution that enhances interoperability, enabling telecoms organizations to integrate it within their current infrastructure and reap its benefits. Precision TimeNet paves the way for the future of mobile and telecommunications, enabling operators across the world to turn their 5G vision into a reality for everyone and for any service.

Whether you own your entire network or partly use leased-line capacity, are planning on continue to use GNSS/GPS or moving over to an in-network synchronization alternative – our solution can be beneficial to you. Find out where our solution fits into your network – Blue light, surveillance, defense, cloud or a combination of those.


Secure a reliable and cost-efficient time synchronization solution for Blue light communication networks with GNSS/GPS independence

Whether you are using a Tetra based solution for your communication network or moving over to 5G, our Precision TimeNet synchronization solution will provide secure and realiable time synchronization independent of GNSS/GPS and underlying network to assure service availability for your mission critical communication needs.
