Telecom today is a broad term ranging from traditional communications networks (SDH/SONET) that need to generate and distribute superior synchronization signals (e.g. E1, 2 MHz) conforming to ANSI/ETSI standards, to mobile operators deploying Ethernet backhaul networks to support 4G/LTE and now 5G mobile technologies which are required to meet customer demand for more bandwidth for a multitude of voice, video, data applications and the IOT connected future. Coping with GNSS vulnerabilities and adhering to the newest ITU standards, Focus, together with Microsemi provide a full range of solutions from a robust and resilient network core to a small indoor network edge and everything in between with the ability to fully monitor and test every step of the way.


Indoor Universal IGM

Synchronizing indoor small cell operations typically requires a high accuracy timing receiver nearby and often a complicated GNSS antenna installation to support a relatively few number of small cells. 

Microsemi’s revolutionary integrated GNSS grandmaster (IGM) solves this problem of delivering precise GNSS-based time indoors where GPS signals usually cannot be received.

Outdoor IGM Grandmaster

Building materials, low GNSS signal strength or other constraints sometimes interfere with indoor small cell synchronization using GNSS PTP grandmaster timing systems.

Solving this challenge is Microsemi’s outdoor integrated grandmaster, the IGM-1100o. Like the indoor version, this compact IGM grandmaster delivers precise time indoors to serve indoor small cells.

IGM for External GPS Antenna

In certain scenarios, there may be a pre-existing GNSS antenna in a location where the GNSS cabling would be short enough to be inexpensive and easily installed.

In such a situation, the most cost-effective solution is to deliver precise time and phase with a low cost IEEE 1588 PTP grandmaster connected to the external GPS antenna.
