The OSA 5240 GPS is versatile: besides supplying GPS-based frequency references, it can also retime E1/DS1 traffic channels whose timing has been impaired by SDH/SONET pointer adjustments; moreover, the OSA 5240 GPS can optionally provide NTP/IRIG-B time distribution. It is therefore possible to supply frequency outputs, retiming and time distribution information without having to install separate boxes, each with its GPS antenna, cabling, management connection, etc.
The OSA 5240 GPS is reliable. In case of loss of the GPS signal, the system can lock onto its auxiliary input and still provide PRC traceable synchronisation outputs.
