Adtran launches satellite time and location solution
Adtran has launched new synchronization solutions featuring Satellite Time and Location (STL) technology to address the growing vulnerabilities of GPS and other GNSS systems to jamming and spoofing attacks.
Alongside GNSS-based timing, the OSA 5405-S PTP grandmaster clock can now receive STL signals. This compact and versatile device caters to a diverse range of indoor and outdoor deployment settings, serving industries from 5G and data centers to smart grids and defense.
Also available from the Adtran Oscilloquartz suite is the OSA 5400 STL module, which brings the benefits of a compact STL/GNSS receiver to third-party switches and servers. STL harnesses low-earth orbit (LEO) satellites as a distinct time source, offering not just an effective alternative to GNSS but also enhancing it with greater reliability and security. This dual-source approach aligns with zero-trust principles, ensuring resilience even in the event of GNSS disruption.
