ViaLite is supplying mission-critical GPS timing and synchronization systems to a new client, Morgan Stanley. The leading edge distributed GPS systems are being deployed at two of the financial services giant’s strategic locations in the USA.
Using optical fiber to carry the timing signals from the GPS antennas, the equipment includes ViaLite’s ODE-A4 outdoor enclosure and GPS 1U chassis with integrated 1×8 and 1×16 GPS splitters, as well as Blue OEM modules for the fiber link. “ViaLite equipment was chosen as it deploys the signal speed, strength, and accuracy needed by our global client to offer best in class service and reliability for their mission-critical financial transactions,” said ViaLite Director of Sales Craig Somach.
Financial services companies require highly precise timing signals to provide the accurate timestamps needed for fast electronic transactions as well as traceability and compliance purposes.

With offices in more than 42 countries and more than 60,000 employees, its clients include corporations, governments, institutions, and individuals.
