The VIAVI Timing Extension Module Version 2, or TEM2, provides network engineers the ability to conduct frequent, if not continuous, checks on their networks to manage inter-cell interference. Together with the T-BERD-5800 or the OneAdvisor 800, the TEM2 provides network engineers the tests to keep their networks in sync. The TEM2 is VIAVI’s second generation timing module, and it features a GNSS antenna and a miniature atomic clock (MAC) to ensure nanosecond-accurate measurements even when a satellite signal is not present and the module is running in holdover. The TEM2 also performs 1588v2 (PTP) measurements delivered in nanosecond-accurate time measurements.
Judge’s Comment: “Accurately timing will be a critical component in future networks so having this type of testing capability will be important.”
