RAD’s mobile xHaul


Easily plugged into service routers to simultaneously distribute frequency and time, the patented MiCLK eliminates the need to install GPS/GNSS antennas at every cell site while providing highly accurate timing distribution with full network coverage – even in underground and in-building installations. It is also ideal for 4G small-cell deployments. The field-proven MiCLK allows service providers to dramatically reduce installation and engineering costs by eliminating the need for additional space or power requirements.
