Optical timing channel (OTC) solution delivers new levels of network synchronization

Our OSA 5412 and 5422 address key timing challenges for a wide range of industries by bringing new levels of synchronization accuracy and resilience to edge and access networks. Featuring multi-band GNSS receivers for nanosecond accuracy and able to support eight field-upgradeable 10Gbit/s ports, they provide the enhanced capabilities needed for next-generation applications such as 5G.
