Enabling data center operators to efficiently host the most demanding time-sensitive applications, Adtran’s OSA 5400 TimeCard™ plugs into any free PCIe slot to turn a standard COTS server into a precise PTP grandmaster clock or NTP server. With multiple oscillator options, the solution ensures accurate timing even during extended periods of GNSS disturbances. In combination with Adtran’s Ensemble Sync Director, the OSA 5400 TimeCard™ provides operational teams with a comprehensive, unified view of their entire timing infrastructure. This enables them to easily manage all elements of their timing network, enhancing control and reliability. What’s more, the OSA 5400 TimeCard™ has been developed to align fully with the IEEE P3335 standardization, ensuring adaptability and underscoring Adtran’s commitment to industry advancement in a cohesive digital ecosystem.
“We’re proud that our OSA 5400 TimeCard™ has been validated by OCP-TAP. This card brings our 74 years of expertise in timing and synchronization to standard servers, going beyond the TAP specifications to provide a scalable, fully featured timing solution in a compact half-size PCIe card. It offers a major boost for data center operators looking to embrace open, disaggregated hardware, especially where timing is vital and space is limited. Our OSA 5400 TimeCard™ ensures seamless, efficient operation of mission-critical and time-sensitive applications,” commented Igal Pinhasov, VP of PLM at Oscilloquartz, Adtran. “As the industry progresses towards agile, cost-effective data center environments, our pluggable timing technology will play a defining role in shaping future architectures.”
