“Celebrating 75 years of Oscilloquartz, alongside a decade since our integration into the Adtran family, represents a remarkable achievement. The dual anniversary highlights our enduring commitment to timing innovation and quality. Throughout these decades, we’ve navigated the evolving landscape from frequency solutions for legacy SONET/SDH to highly accurate frequency and time solutions for packet-based networks. Our dedication has enabled us to offer scalable technology that ensures robust timing, with or without satellite signals,” said Gil Biran, GM of Oscilloquartz, Adtran. “From pioneering the integration of synchronization delivery and assurance to bringing timing closer to end applications through our compact, low-power devices, including our latest family of OSAinside products, our portfolio has consistently addressed our customers’ key challenges. More recently, the introduction of the first commercial optical cesium atomic clocks was another major leap, significantly enhancing the precision and stability of network timing while substantially extending lifespan.”

Since its inception, Oscilloquartz has led the field in network synchronization, setting standards with the industry’s first commercial magnetic cesium atomic clock in 1966 and spearheading telecoms timing solutions in 1978. In 1982, it transformed the market by introducing the first high-performance quartz oscillators and resonators, which played a key role in developing the European Digital Cesium Standard in 1988. After its acquisition in 2014, Oscilloquartz expanded its global presence, with leading service providers adopting its products. It also provided customized solutions across metrology, finance and national defense sectors. Its leadership in cesium clock technology won support for its R&D initiatives from the European Space Agency. Continuing its legacy of innovation, Oscilloquartz recently enhanced the resiliency of GPS/GNSS systems with its Iridium®-based Satellite Time and Location (STL) technology solutions, leveraging low-Earth orbit satellite signals for more reliable, secure synchronization even in challenging environments.

“This historic anniversary is a moment to appreciate Oscilloquartz’s incredible journey, from its initial project at the astronomical observatory in Neuchâtel 70 years ago to the forefront of timing technology today,” commented Christoph Glingener, CTO of Adtran. “Over the last decade, the integration with ADVA and then Adtran has enriched Oscilloquartz’s offerings through the combined expertise of our teams. This era saw the debut of compact and cost-effective Oscilloquartz synchronization devices, delivering unmatched precision at the network edge. Its core grandmasters set new industry benchmarks with their 10GbE support and hardware timestamping. Together with Oscilloquartz’s optical atomic cesium clocks, they create a SePRTC+, guaranteeing accurate, reliable timing even during GNSS disruptions for up to 100 days. This combination of the industry’s most scalable family of grandmasters based on zero-trust architecture, coupled with optical pumping technology, sets Oscilloquartz apart today. As part of the Adtran family, Oscilloquartz will continue its legacy of excellence, keeping customers at the forefront of synchronization technology.”

EASA Certifies LEAP-powered Airbus A321XLR19.7.2024 15:14:00 CEST | Press release

CFM International is celebrating certification of the LEAP-powered Airbus A321XLR by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The A321XLR marks the fifth member of the A320neo family aircraft powered by LEAP engines. Supporting aircraft certification were updates to the engine’s type certificates, which EASA and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) granted on July 10. “Certification of the CFM-powered A321XLR is an important milestone in providing our operators much greater route scheduling flexibility,” said Gaël Méheust, president and CEO of CFM International. “The engine was always designed with 35,000-lb. thrust capability for longer range, higher max takeoff weight aircraft. As a result, no engine modifications were required, giving operators the added benefit of 100 percent commonality with their existing A320neo family fleets.” As the aviation industry gathers at the Farnborough International Airshow, trade visitors will be able to see the LEAP-powered A321XLR
