ADVA delivers unprecedented precision in timing networks with TrueTime™

Share

ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced a new and robust way to deliver unprecedented levels of precision in timing networks. Built on ADVA’s TrueTime™ technology, this new end-to-end solution will prove key for 5G, smart grid and other time-sensitive applications. Unlike other delivery mechanisms, TrueTime™ uses PTP-optimized optical transport to provide accurate synchronization from the core of the network all the way to the edge. It does this by combining ePRTC core clocks and ultra-precise boundary clocks to ensure nanosecond timing. Not only does this method provide PRTC levels of accuracy, but it’s also more robust than any competing solution and this is key in the battle to mitigate the risk of GNSS vulnerabilities. What’s more, in greenfield deployments, TrueTime™ enables service providers to reduce the number of PRTC core clocks and GNSS equipment, simplifying network management and reducing costs.

“Our TrueTime™ solution addresses some of the most urgent challenges for operators of critical infrastructure. It enables highly accurate synchronization throughout the transport network and offers a future-proof way to tackle the risk of reliance on satellite-based timing. From governments concerned with the growing risk of blocked GNSS signals to mobile network operators rolling out next-generation services, our TrueTime™ technology will prove invaluable,” said Henning Hinderthür, VP, product line management, ADVA. “TrueTime™ combines our PTP-optimized FSP 3000 optical transport with our ultra-precise Oscilloquartz technology, including PTP grandmasters with ePRTC capabilities in the core and boundary clock class D technology in metro locations. This even reduces cost and complexity by eliminating the need for unnecessary equipment, enabling operators to streamline their timing infrastructure.”

ADVA TrueTime™ offers new levels of robust and precise synchronization for even the most challenging applications. It achieves this by using a bidirectional channel to deliver SyncE and PTP traffic. Accuracy is ensured by PRTC/ePRTC core clocks featuring OSA 5430/40 in combination with OSA 3230/3350 cesium atomic clocks. Closely-spaced, out-of-band wavelengths help TrueTime™ tackle asymmetric delay and leave all other channels available for customer traffic. What’s more, every element of the TrueTime™ solution is transparently controlled by ADVA’s Ensemble Controller and Ensemble Sync Director management system, featuring Syncjack™ monitoring technology. As well as being the market’s only complete end-to-end solution combining timing, transport and assurance technology, TrueTime™ offers the benefits of a fully integrated synchronization overlay solution. This empowers operators to protect their investment by harnessing rapid innovation cycles.

“All across the world, governments and businesses are realizing that network timing based on GNSS is vulnerable to failure, disruption and interference. Ensuring backup is now seen as a mandatory step towards secure synchronization. What we’re announcing today leverages two key Oscilloquartz innovations: Our boundary clocks now meet class D performance and use multiple clock domains for link redundancy, and our fully redundant ePRTC solutions utilize our new optical atomic clocks. This means that operators can ensure PRTC quality in greenfield networks without the need to invest in PRTCs at every single site,” commented Nir Laufer, senior director, product line management, Oscilloquartz, ADVA. “From our newly enhanced boundary clocks and unique optical cesium technology to the flexible ADVA FSP 3000 open line system, each element is a pre-integrated part of our TrueTime™ solution. And for ultimate efficiency and ease of use, every piece is under the management umbrella of our comprehensive Ensemble Controller and Ensemble Sync Director.”

Successful Certification of Kalray’s Smart Storage Adapter19.10.2020 19:00:00 EESTPress release

Kalray (Paris:ALKAL) (Euronext Growth Paris: FR0010722819 – ALKAL), a pioneer in processors for new intelligent systems, today announced that its K200™ Coolidge™ based smart storage adapter solution has been certified for NVM ExpressTM over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) with TCP (NVMe™/TCP) protocol by the NVM Express organization through the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent testing provider of standard conformance solutions and multi-vendor interoperability. Data Centers are undergoing a very important revolution with rapidly evolving network architectures and technologies. This is mainly due to the explosion of usages, the surge of data to be processed and the resulting exponential growth of the number of machines to be managed to support this growth. Until now, storage has been one major bottleneck of this expansion. The introduction of flash memory-based SDD (Solid-State Drive) with hyper-fast communication protocols such as NVMe™/TCP, offers a

Octapharma announces FDA approval of updated NUWIQ® Prescribing Information to include immunogenicity data in previously untreated patients19.10.2020 18:29:00 EESTPress release

Octapharma is pleased to announce that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved an updated Prescribing Information (PI) for NUWIQ®, Octapharma’s human cell line-derived recombinant factor VIII (FVIII). NUWIQ ® is approved for the prevention and treatment of bleeding in people with haemophilia A. The updated PI includes immunogenicity data from the NuProtect study in previously untreated patients (PUPs). FVIII inhibitor development is the most serious treatment complication in previously untreated patients (PUPs) with severe haemophilia A. The development of inhibitors against exogenous FVIII can reduce the effectiveness of treatment and negatively impact a patient's long-term joint health and quality of life. Minimising the risk of inhibitor development is therefore a key consideration in treatment decisions for PUPs. The updated NUWIQ® PI includes data from the NuProtect study, which was the largest prospective study of a single FVIII product in true PUPs. Patients rec
