NEW: Qg 2i now includes full QZSS support for both time and location information
As 5G evolves from non standalone (NSA) supporting 4G today, to a standalone (SA) architecture with 5G NR, the support for massive MIMO radios, network slicing, low latency and tight synchronization are critical considerations. In order to meet phase and frequency requirements for applications in the 5G service based architecture, deploying more GMs (PRTC) in RAN and at the edge is the optimal solution that helps in future proofing the deployment and associated investment. The low cost, small footprint Qg2i can be used for a full turnkey PTP clock implementation in multiple network elements.
With virtualization and decomposition of 4G/5G base stations, the newly designed data-centers and CORDs (Central Office Re-architected as Data Centers) require a very high capacity, easily scalable PTP master (T-GM, T-BC) in providing synchronization to hundreds of PTP slave devices. Qg2i is a rapid, simple way to integrate an industry leading technology to meet these challenges.
Next generation networks require this decentralized approach. The Assisted Partial Timing Support (APTS) architecture is designed for these networks and deliver precise phase and frequency to small cells in a scalable and cost-effective manner. Qg 2i is highly field-scalable solution and designed for such edge distributed architectures.
Qg 2i provides IEEE 1588-2008 (PTP) Grand Master and Boundary Clock functionality at low total cost of ownership, and comes with customization and integration services. It leverages Qulsar’s unique industry-leading PTP algorithms to deliver stringent timing for LTE-A, LTE-TDD, CBRS (USA), SxGP (Japan), private LTE and 5G architectures (both operator and private) and supports ITU-T G.8265 and G.8275 frequency and phase profiles. The product features multiple oscillator options to deliver a range of holdover performance.
The true innovation in this product lies in its "system-level" functionality, cost effectiveness and rapid integration in a fast moving market.
