RALTRON ‘s miniature SY-GSC11 the world’s first distributed IEEE 1588 Grandmaster on an SFP with a built-in GNSS receiver.

It plugs into existing devices in the access network, thus bringing highly accurate frequency and time distribution closer to the cell site at a fraction of the cost of alternative solutions. The patented SY-GSC11is ideal for LTE/LTE-A and 5G macro-cell and small-cell deployments, including underground and in-building installations, among others.

In addition to lowering CapEx and simplifying network upgrades, SY-GSC11 dramatically reduces installation and engineering costs by eliminating the need for additional space or an independent power source. To ensure a highly reliable service offering, it features superior backup and resiliency options.

Key Features
