ATLANTA – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced it has responded to calls from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to protect critical infrastructure from harm Growing GNSS vulnerabilities and cybersecurity. threats to positioning, navigation and synchronization (PNT) services with the launch of its aPNT + ™ platform. This scalable solution meets all the latest guidelines for resilient NWP and is the most comprehensive offering in the industry. It provides end-to-end control and synchronization network visibility for the most robust protection available against the catastrophic risks PNT disruptions pose to national security and critical assets such as power grids.
“Cyber threats are at an all time high. At the same time, the infrastructure on which our economies and our lives depend has never been so dependent on weak and highly vulnerable satellite signals. This is why the US DHS and NIST want PNT services to be more resilient and for network operators to implement strategies to counter vulnerabilities in GPS and other GNSS systems, including PTP synchronization streams in network. Our trusted aPNT +™ platform is the definitive answer. Being open and scalable, it offers an end-to-end range of cost-effective solutions and the most comprehensive features in the industry for increased resilience, robustness and cybersecurity, ”said Gil Biran, Managing Director, Oscilloquartz, ADVA. “For industries and governments, timing is now a critical service requiring urgent protection. Our aPNT +™ will be the cornerstone of the most effective defense-in-depth strategies.
Governments around the world have issued guidelines to protect business and society from disruption to PNT services, including U.S. Executive Order 13905, which was followed by the DHS Resilient PNT Conformance Framework and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework for PNT Profile. The guidelines urge operators to rapidly implement technologies and measures to protect vital infrastructure. Based on this, ADVA has integrated an intelligent and scalable aPNT platform into its product portfolio. Even without GPS or GNSS synchronization, the solution provides an intelligent end-to-end self-recovery system designed around a triple frame. Incorporating sophisticated multi-layered detection, multi-source backup, and multi-level fault-tolerant mitigation, it delivers the highest levels of resiliency, robustness and cybersecurity. This is a new standard for PNT services provided, incorporating not only the four levels of PNT resilience of the DHS framework, but also providing enhanced resilience of level four, the highest level for the assurance of PNT services of confidence.
“Our aPNT +™ platform will be invaluable for any critical infrastructure with a critical dependency on PNT services. With our broad product portfolio, it offers all the building blocks to create an end-to-end solution, including advanced cesium clocks, our extensive family of kernel to miniature PTP grandmasters, and our innovative insurance application. synchronization, ”said Nino De Falcis, Senior Director, Business Development, Oscilloquartz, ADVA. “From transportation to national defense, from energy to finance, industries today must take action against the enormous risk to lives and livelihoods posed by dependence on PNT. There is now a new reliable way to prevent, respond and recover PNT services against disruptions with our comprehensive aPNT +™ Solution.”
