Accurate Time Synchronization in live network Vodafone

In February this year we issued a press release announcing our very successful Proof of Concept for distributing accurate timing through the live Vodafone network. Time was delivered with an astonishingly small error of less than 1 nanosecond over a cascade of four sites, covering a distance of 320 km. This remarkable feat represents the world's first successful deployment of so-called White Rabbit timing in the production network of a commercial operator.

Extremely high capacity (400 Gbit/s) for education and research in the Netherlands

Our services include

A good network starts with a good design. Since we focus on fiber optics, our designs are based around both the geographical aspects as well as the functional aspects of a network. The design serves as a basis for a scalable approach towards sustainable network management.

Another important part of the process is preparation. By performing a detailed site survey, we know exactly what we need to implement the right functionality without causing down time.

Most of the work can be done in a controlled environment. This saves time and reduces the margin for error. Also, since all the equipment has been preconfigured, the engineer in the field can focus on the taks of getting the network up and running.

Measurements are crucial to a successful roll-out. By knowing exactly what the influencing factors on your network are, you can adjust all the hardware accordingly. In combination with good planning, site surveys and prestaging, field work is reduced to following procedures rather than 'ad hoc' approaches.

Most of the preparations should be done at the time of installation. At this point, commissioning a line is the key focus. By focusing on minimal downtime and by applying the right calculations, installing a fiber link should be easy. It's what we do.

After installing a network it is important to keep an eye on all the parameters. By implementing successful monitoring tools we can make sure the network is always up. By signaling minor changes we can predict and prevent outages.

Our engineers are on 24x7 standby to support you in keeping your network up and running. This can only be done by skilled engineers that have access to the right tools. By taking over the ownership of your problem, you can be assured we will find the cause and where possible solve it within a minimal time frame. This is our unique approach.
