ADVA FSP 150 Supports Mobile Data Growth with Complete Synchronization Solution

ADVA Optical Networking today launched its new Syncjack(TM )suite designed specifically to deliver precise timing synchronization and assurance across mobile backhaul networks. As mobile operators continue to migrate to 4G networks, it's vital they have access to accurate timing sources while at the same time continuously monitoring service performance. Without this functionality, mobile operators may face significant network challenges and potential disruptions. Fully integrated into the FSP 150, Syncjack™ offers in one platform a complete synchronization solution for mobile backhaul networks, which includes the delivery and end-to-end quality assurance of timing information.

"The mobile backhaul network is undergoing a radical transformation," said Patrick Donegan, senior analyst at Heavy Reading. "Operators have been discovering in the last couple of years that the implementation of some of the new packet synchronization standards isn't always just a simple 'tick-box' exercise for vendors. There are significant variations in the performance of some of these new standards according to different vendor implementations. And those that have the best implementations should be able to leverage this for competitive advantage."

The shift from voice to data-centric mobile networks has resulted in a move from traditional TDM services to a wide-scale adoption of Carrier Ethernet in mobile backhaul. Without any legacy TDM-links, however, base stations risk being isolated from traditional synchronization references. As mobile operators increasingly deploy 4G radio access technologies and depend on accurate delivery of frequency, phase and time-of-day synchronization, they are now seeking advanced solutions that not only deliver the required timing information accurately but also provide assurance regarding its availability.

"We believe that Syncjack™ is a breakthrough for the industry," commented Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. "Synchronization and assurance on one platform is something that has not been done before. Syncjack™ is the missing piece for mobile operators migrating to 4G networks. It provides in-depth understanding on the performance of the timing network and this is critical when leasing backhaul connectivity. Yet it also offers automated test and measurement capabilities that significantly reduce operational complexity."

Syncjack™ features a rich implementation of SyncE and IEEE 1588v2 functionality guaranteeing highly accurate delivery of timing information across any network. It includes a complete synchronization network management platform with strong emphasis on predictability and quality assurance. An extensive set of tools allows operators to display the synchronization network topology, continuously monitor and test the quality of the delivered timing information as well as analyze and troubleshoot the network in case of quality impairments.
