Indoor Universal IGM

Synchronizing indoor small cell operations typically requires a high accuracy timing receiver nearby and often a complicated GNSS antenna installation to support a relatively few number of small cells. 

Microsemi’s revolutionary integrated GNSS grandmaster (IGM) solves this problem of delivering precise GNSS-based time indoors where GPS signals usually cannot be received.

Outdoor IGM Grandmaster

Building materials, low GNSS signal strength or other constraints sometimes interfere with indoor small cell synchronization using GNSS PTP grandmaster timing systems.

Solving this challenge is Microsemi’s outdoor integrated grandmaster, the IGM-1100o. Like the indoor version, this compact IGM grandmaster delivers precise time indoors to serve indoor small cells.

IGM for External GPS Antenna

In certain scenarios, there may be a pre-existing GNSS antenna in a location where the GNSS cabling would be short enough to be inexpensive and easily installed.

In such a situation, the most cost-effective solution is to deliver precise time and phase with a low cost IEEE 1588 PTP grandmaster connected to the external GPS antenna.
