IMS LANTIME M4000 : Ultra-Versatile Platform for Telecom Synchronisation Applications

The Meinberg IMS LANTIME M4000 has been designed to fulfil the synchronisation requirements of modern 4G/5G/LTE networks. It is capable to act as a Primary Reference Time Clock (PRTC) and, because of its unmatched flexibility, can be deployed in different scenarios. The modularity of the IMS platform (Intelligent Modular System) allows the M4000 to be configured for all areas of a mobile backhaul network: in the core, metro or access network areas.
