Nationwide rollout of TD-LTE services

Mobile Netherlands has deployed and fully implemented Oscilloquartz's OSA 5420 Series as part of its national rollout of TD-LTE services.

The upgrade empowers T-Mobile Netherlands to meet skyrocketing levels of data demand and also equip its synchronisation network in readiness for LTE Advanced Pro, eLTE and 5G.

The OSA 5420 Series grandmaster clocks provide the sub-microsecond accuracy required for next generation mobile applications as well as an unprecedented level of robustness and scalability.

It also delivers assisted partial timing support functionality and enables T-Mobile Netherlands to smoothly transition from legacy synchronisation technologies.

T-Mobile Netherlands transport network solution engineer Muzaffer Erdem said: "Deploying Oscilloquartz's complete sync solution is key to evolving our network. Their unique technology enables us to enhance our existing infrastructure seamlessly and gives us the phenomenally precise frequency and phase synchronisation we need as we roll out LTE-TDD, LTE-A and eventually 5G mobile services.

"With our customers demanding an increasingly advanced voice, video and data applications, high-quality timing in the packet backhaul network becomes paramount. Leveraging the OSA 5420 Series is the ideal response.”

To meet mobile backhaul demands, T-Mobile Netherlands has deployed the OSA 5420 Series in its core network and at metro aggregation points.

By harnessing the latest IEEE 1588v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) technology, the solution enables accurate phase synchronisation throughout the national infrastructure. This makes emerging technologies possible such as coordinated multipoint transmission for enhanced data availability.

Despite its small footprint, the OSA 5420 Series also delivers the highest level of holdover performance available on the market, giving T-Mobile Netherlands the ultimate protection from GNSS outages. For even higher levels of availability and resiliency, the OSA 5420 Series comprehensively supports all major GNSS constellations.
