SatAware™ delivers unique health check of GNSS-based synchronization without the need for on-site visits
15 July 2019
ADVA (FSE: ADV) today launched ADVA SatAware™, the industry’s first AI-powered analytics service for monitoring the quality of GNSS-based timing. The unique solution provides communication service providers (CSPs) and other operators of critical infrastructure with real-time insight into signal quality at their GNSS satellite receivers. With the ADVA SatAware™ solution, operators can easily identify any physical objects blocking GNSS signals and resolve issues before they impact the synchronization network. The non-intrusive, cost-effective solution is specifically designed to meet the needs of major CSPs and enable the robust timing needed for 5G connectivity. It will also prove invaluable in a wide range of time-sensitive industries from utilities to financial networks.
“Changes in the environment, such as newly built or modified buildings or trees growing, can have a serious impact on GNSS-based timing. Yet the specific physical causes of interference can often be difficult to detect and even harder to predict. With SatAware™, maintenance teams can instantly react to these issues – or even preempt them – well before they affect network performance,” said Nir Laufer, senior director, product line management, Oscilloquartz, ADVA. “The great thing about SatAware™ is that you don’t need to be a timing expert. This solution can provide a daily report for each site with clear findings and recommendations. This gives network operators everything they need to adapt or reposition new antennas for optimal GNSS reception and take immediate action to prevent any problems.”
