GPS/GNSS Modules

Multi-GNSS Disciplined Oscillator Model GF-8801NEW

Extremely high stability of 4.5ns (1sigma) using a single band receiver
In comformity with G.8272 PRTC-A

GF-8801 outputs 1PPS synchronized with UTC as well as 10MHz coherent to 1PPS.
UTC time-synchronized signal performance to meet 5G requirments is obtained without any changes to existing single band GNSS antennas.
It also incorporates Dynamic Satellite Selection™, which is a new satellite signal selection algorithm developed by NTT. Thanks to that GF-8801 permits GNSS antennas to be mounted more freely than ever before including wall mounting and window mounting installations.

Timing

Features

  • Generates UTC-synchronized 1PPS (pulse per second) and continuously disciplined 10 MHz

  • Coherent behavior between time pulse (jitter less 1PPS) and frequency (10 MHz)

  • Concurrent reception of GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/QZSS/SBAS

  • Extremely high stability of 4.5ns (1sigma) using a single band receiver
    In comformity with G.8272 PRTC-A

    FURUNO technology made it possible to achieve 5G-required performance. 4.5ns (1 sigma) by a single band receiver is obtained. GF-8801 is in comformitity with G.8272 PRTC-A. This is achieved by an improved and advanced position estimation algorithm. It optimizes position calculations using several different GNSS satellite constellations. It allows users to achieve 5G-required performance without changing existing single band GNSS antennas.
