Telecommunication networks require highly accurate clocks for the effective transmission of digital signals. One of the primary
objectives of telecommunication networks is to guarantee, at the connection between different networks, a slip rate of
less than one slip in 72 days.
Meeting these stringent specifications requires the implementation of a Primary Reference Clock (PRC) that must generate
signals with an accuracy better than 1E-11, at all times. Generally, this is achieved using Cesium clock technology, often
combined with GPS receivers as backup sources. Unlike off-air receivers, Cesium clocks are autonomous, self-contained
primary references immune from external influences.
The Oscilloquartz's OSA 3230 Cesium Clock is specifically
designed and produced with the latest technology to
serve complex applications where an extremely accurate
reference signal is needed in a minimum size.
The OSA 3230 Cesium Clock offers a unique set of
operational features and performance, including greatly
enhanced and easy integration into industrial,
professional time and frequency host systems. With its
long life cesium tube, the OSA 3230 will meet the
requirements where G.811 performances are needed over
a long period of time.
