ViaLite’s Distributed GPS System is being used to feed mission-critical timing and synchronization signals over optical fiber to multiple S650 GPS referenced NTP time servers.

Stock exchanges need to offer their clients the fastest possible trading speeds and, for this, their IT systems need to be provided with highly accurate timing signals, which can be obtained from GPS/GNSS satellite networks.

The equipment Vialite supplied included GPS lossless distributed multi-port fiber-optic links, supplied in OEM format to meet NASDAQ’s requirements.

“ViaLite was chosen for its performance attributes that are not readily available elsewhere in the RF over fiber market, as well as for its best in class quality, reliability and support,” said ViaLite director of sales, Craig Somach.
