On-Demand Webinar: Ensuring Precise and Robust Network Timing with GNSS Test Solutions

Learn about the testing requirements and solutions around modern network time synchronization

Webinar: Ensuring Precise and Robust Network Timing with GNSS Test SolutionsTimes are changing in the world of telecommunication networks. To meet demand for high-speed, high-bandwidth services, network operators are seeking to roll out next-generation LTE-TDD and LTE-A networks. But for these new networks to deliver a quality service with no dropped packets, they need highly precise time and phase synchronization across the network.

Time synchronization begins with the Primary Reference Time Clock (PRTC) or Grandmaster Clock; a device whose job is to sync continuously to Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) – most commonly obtained from a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) like GPS or GLONASS – and distribute precise time to all other devices in the network.

The webinar deals with the testing requirements and solutions around modern network time synchronization. A simple test setup can address the needs and help you to improve the performance and reliability of your timing solution.

You will learn:

  • Why precise timing is so important in next-generation LTE networks
  • Time errors and test recommendations (ITU-T G.8272)
  • Potential sources of GNSS signal interference
  • Testing challenges, and how they can be overcome
