µFalcon-ST/G

Compact edge timing master with converged infrastructure transport

The µFalcon-ST/G is designed to address the growing challenges of Timing & Synchronization, especially in LTE/5G mobile networks. Its ability to flexibly deliver timing at the edge enables solid and optimized performance of the network.

Coupled with strong transport capabilities, supporting both legacy and packet technologies, the µFalcon-ST/G provides the most robust solution foraggregation of 2G through LTE base stations and smooth migration between these technologies.
