The XGM30 was showcased at the International Timing & Sync Forum (ITSF) in Bucharest, Romania. ITSF is the largest specialist time and sync conference in the world, covering a number of emerging applications across various industry sectors including telecommunication, finance, energy, transport, broadcast and defense.
Designed as a robust IP65-compliant compact outdoor device, the XGM30 uses the GNSS satellite signal as a primary time reference. It supports PTP IEEE 1588-2008 (1588V2) and SyncE technologies to deliver highly accurate frequency and time synchronization. The XGM30 supports various installation scenarios and has several advanced features including:
- Concurrent multi-GNSS multi-channel reception for highly improved timing accuracy and availability
- Extra-high-precision double-oven OCXO
- Two optical Ethernet ports, performance monitoring and comprehensive management features including centralized network management and mobile application support for local management
Similar to other members of the SyncRing family, the SyncRing XGM30 provides an excellent integrated solution for various applications that require precise synchronization of frequency, phase and time over packet-based networks. The XGM30 enables mobile network operators to cost-effectively meet the stringent time synchronization requirements of LTE/LTE-A and 5G networks.
In addition to the XGM30 introduction, UTStarcom utilized the ITSF conference to highlight its position as an industry leader in synchronization products.
