Viavi Unveils Enhanced Timing Solutions for Critical Infrastructure

More from Author

In Short:

Viavi Solutions has released SecurePNT 6200 with SecureTime services for reliable PNT in critical infrastructure. The timing clock integrates Fugro AtomiChron service for intelligent assurance using signals from various GPS and GNSS constellations. Viavi emphasizes the importance of timing security for essential services like 5G, transportation, and defense. The Fugro AtomiChron service enhances accuracy and protects against signal spoofing, providing resilience in critical infrastructure.

        <b>Viavi Solutions</b> has announced the availability of SecurePNT 6200 with SecureTime services, a timing clock designed to ensure the reliability of positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) services for critical infrastructure operations. Building upon <b>Viavi’s</b> existing PNT products, SecurePNT and SecureTime integrate the Fugro AtomiChron timing service, enabling intelligent zero-trust multisource assurance by combining signals from Geosynchronous Orbit (GEO), Low Earth Orbit (LEO), and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) GPS and GNSS constellations, the company announced Wednesday.

<h2>Importance of Timing Security</h2>
<p>
    <b>Viavi</b> highlighted that essential networks worldwide, including 5G communications, transportation, energy, public safety, finance, defense, and data centers, depend on publicly available GPS and GNSS signals for synchronization based on timing and location. However, these signals are occasionally unavailable or at risk of being jammed or spoofed, posing potentially catastrophic consequences.
</p>
<p>
    <b>Viavi</b> asserts that its portfolio of products has proven to deliver redundant timing and location security in civilian and military applications, thanks to connectivity to the broadest range of timing sources in the market.<br />
    The Fugro AtomiChron timing source enables the <b>Viavi</b> SecureTime eGNSSSM GEO service to provide authenticated and encrypted resilience and higher accuracy, previously unsupported by traditional GNSS, the company said.
</p>
<p>
    “Time synchronization is one of the greatest challenges for critical infrastructure,” remarked <b>Roel de Vries, Business Developer AtomiChron at Fugro</b>. “The Fugro AtomiChron service improves the accuracy of timekeeping to the nanosecond and provides protection from GNSS signals being spoofed, using our navigation message authentication.”
</p>
<p>
    “The public and private sectors are on high alert against threats to critical infrastructure, with positioning, navigation, and timing being especially vulnerable,” noted <b>Doug Russell, Senior Vice President, AvComm, VIAVI</b>, emphasizing the augmentation of their resilient PNT solutions with AtomiChron’s precision, reliability, and global availability.
