Trimble Launches Timing Portfolio for Mobile Telecom
ICM SMT 360 timing module

Trimble has introduced a new portfolio of GNSS-based time and frequency products to address the synchronization needs of the fast-growing 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) small-cell telecom market.

Mobile telecom networks, whether 3G, 4G LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) wireless technologies, or a combination, need high-precision synchronization and syntonization.

Mobile telecom networks, whether 3G, 4G LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) wireless technologies, or a combination, need high-precision synchronization and syntonization.
Trimble timing solutions provide increased holdover capabilities and more robust signals with multi-constellation GNSS technology with which to sync wireless networks efficiently. The new product line-up includes:

The Mini-T GG Disciplined Clock is a multi-GNSS (GPS and GLONASS) embedded module, optimized to generate precise 10MHz output and pulse per second. It utilizes the latest in GNSS technology, combined with a precision ovenized oscillator for near atomic clock precision timing. The Mini-T GG provides 24-hour holdover capability and is suitable for pico and microcells.

The Trimble 360 multi-GNSS receiver is designed to cover the full spectrum of small cells—residential femtocell to rural microcell. The Trimble 360 timing products support GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou systems, and are Galileo-ready. In addition to full constellations, the 360 products support satellite-based augmentation systems (SBAS), and Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS).

The surface mount ICM SMT 360 timing module, measuring 19 x 19 millimeters, generates a 10MHz reference clock for synchronization of residential and enterprise femtocell networks. It provides holdover capability, which allows the module to extend the availability of reference timing outputs.

The Resolution SMT 360 is available in the same 19 x 19 millimeter form factor and provides a pulse per second that provides nanosecond accuracy to any application requiring precision time reference such as wireless networks, utilities and digital broadcasting.
