The agility and efficiency of our OSA 5401 enables precise phase synchronization even in the most difficult network scenarios. From 4G and 5G mobile networks, through power utilities to modern broadcast services, missioncritical applications demand ultra-compact and cost-effective synchronization solutions for deployment deep in the network with minimal footprint and power consumption. OSA 5401 SyncPlug™ enables precise synchronization in the most space-restrictive environments. Now there’s a simple way to upgrade legacy systems with IEEE 1588v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP).

The OSA 5401 SyncPlug™ small-form factor pluggable (SFP) is a powerful and versatile time server with a built-in GNSS receiver and the smallest footprint and most compact design on the market. It enables accurate phase and frequency synchronization using PTP, Sync-E and NTP at the network edge with zero-adding footprint. Its small form factor and rich feature set enable a versatile range of deployment options for enhanced synchronization network performance.
