T-Mobile Netherlands prepares for next gen LTE
Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

T-Mobile has deployed Oscilloquartz’ OSA 5420 synchronisation technology as part of its rollout of TD-LTE services across the Netherlands. Oscilloquartz is owned by ADVA Optical Networking.

According to ADVA, the use of the grandmaster clocks will help its client prepare for LTE Advanced Pro, eLTE and 5G. It will also “empower T-Mobile Netherlands to meet skyrocketing levels of data demand.”

The OSA 5420 series is designed to provide ‘sub-microsecond’ - and assisted partial timing - support.

Speaking of the deployment, T-Mobile Netherlands’ Muzaffer Erdem said: "Oscilloquartz's complete sync solution is key to evolving our network. Their unique technology enables us to seamlessly enhance our existing infrastructure and gives us the phenomenally precise frequency and phase synchronization.

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

T-Mobile Netherlands has deployed the OSA 5420 series as part of its core network, and at metro aggregation points. The technology enables phase synchronization throughout the national infrastructure.
