Synchronization Solution For Government Critical Networks

Home » 5G Home » Critical Networks » Government Networks


Government and homeland security networks require reliable and secure services, even in challenging environments

The geopolitical situation has made governments and community organizations aware of the strong requirement to build robust and secure infrastructure. A core building block in many of these applications is an accurate time synchronization. During conflicts it has been evident that relying solely on GNSS/GPS services is not secure, since they will be targeted with both jamming and spoofing attacks. A distributed, disaggregated synchronization solution is key to provide a secure and reliable synchronization that also covers challenging and encrypted links. Homeland security services will increasingly use 5G and are contributing to the requirement for a secure and reliable 5G infrastructure where synchronization is a key network capability and enabler of future mission-critical 5G services.

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. Services also need to work seamlessly both in indoor and outdoor environments.

How to enable synchronisation over a network with challenging and encrypted links

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 needed to provide reliable and secure synchronization over existing networks.
