Microchip Unifies Management of “Terrestrial Time” and “Live-Sky Time” Sources to Enable Resilient Timing for Critical Infrastructure

CHANDLER, Ariz–(BUSINESS WIRE/AETOSWire)– Today’s 5G wireless infrastructure has more complex, higher-density synchronization needs than previous-generation networks and is highly dependent on the integrity of “live-sky” timing signals from the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP) today announced it has integrated its BlueSky GNSS Firewall with its TimePictra 11 synchronization monitoring and management platform to protect 5G networks and other critical timing infrastructure from Global Positioning System (GPS) signal jamming and spoofing while providing single-console visibility across the entire timing architecture. “Microchip’s TimePictra system improves overall situational…
