Partner Communications utilizes ADVA synchronization solution for 5G timing
MUNICH – ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced that Partner Communications has deployed its Oscilloquartz timing technology to support 5G rollout throughout Israel. The solution provides the level of accuracy and availability needed for next-generation mobile services and time-sensitive low-latency applications. Featuring ADVA's Oscilloquartz core grandmaster devices, enhanced primary reference time clock (ePRTC) technology and multi-band GNSS receivers, the new timing infrastructure is ultra-resilient and prepared to withstand the rising threat of jamming and spoofing attacks. ADVA's partner RDT Equipment & Systems also played a significant role in the deployment, carrying out installation, configuration and troubleshooting. Together with ADVA, it will provide Partner Communication with ongoing maintenance and support.
Partner Communications' new timing infrastructure features the OSA 5440, a fully redundant, scalable, and modular multi-technology grandmaster for core deployment. Operating with the OSA 3230B ePRC cesium clock and OSA clock combiner, it provides an ePRTC system, providing high levels of time stability compliant with the ITU-T G.8272.1 standard. Onboard multi-band, multi-constellation receivers compensate for atmospheric disturbances to filter out timing errors. What's more, centralized AI-powered GNSS assurance software identifies and protects against vulnerabilities of satellite-based timing. The solution also includes the OSA 5410 Series for continuous probing and assurance, enabling Partner Communications' team to anticipate any issues and minimize disruption to service. The technology is remotely controlled by ADVA's Ensemble Controller with Sync Director. This provides a powerful management platform, giving Partner Communications full visibility of its synchronization infrastructure and assuring accurate timing.

Here's where you can find episode links for 'The Divide,' Light Reading's podcast series featuring conversations with broadband providers and policymakers working to close the digital divide.
As we have for the past two years, Light Reading will present our Cable Next-Gen Europe conference as a free digital symposium on June 21.
Charter has sparked RDOF work in all 24 states where it won bids. The cable op booked about $19 million in RDOF revenues in Q1, and expects to have about $9 million per month come in over the next ten years.
As we have for the past two years, Light Reading will stage the Cable Next-Gen Technologies & Strategies conference as a free digital event over two half-days in mid-March.
Launch of 2-Gig and 5-Gig FTTP tiers in 70-plus markets puts more pressure on cable ops to enhance their existing DOCSIS 3.1 network or accelerate their upgrade activity centered on the new DOCSIS 4.0 specs.

The digital divide in North America is leaving millions without adequate broadband. Incumbents operate in “islands” of connectivity, serving densely populated areas and, at a national scale, perpetuating the digital divide in the gaps in between their service footprints. Regional ISPs have a clear role in closing that gap.
These regional ISPs operate in a highly fragmented landscape, including smaller wireless and FTTH incumbents, satellite ISPs, electric co-ops, tribal communities, and municipalities in public/private partnerships. These regional ISPs face the same cyber threats and operational challenges as their Tier 1 counterparts, but with far fewer resources and revenue-generating population density. As a result, many regional ISPs have developed highly innovated business models for access and core technology, partnerships, financing and services.
The discussion will cover:
- Three ISPs that have taken an innovative approach to their business, as detailed in a recent STL Partners report
- Why regional ISPs need to double down on core security basics such as DDoS protection
- How ISPs have created new revenue by offering managed services
- Core network capabilities required for IPv4-IPv6 management
