Viavi Solutions Inc. VIAV recently introduced altGNSS GEO SecureTime services, delivering ultra-precise nanoseconds-accurate UTC timing via L-Band and Ku-Band satellite signals. This advancement is set to revolutionize mission-critical communication systems, crucial for 5G networks, transportation, data centers, smart grids, high-frequency trading, military and first responder communications and satellite terminals.

The new service operates independently of traditional GPS and GNSS, significantly enhancing security by making it extremely difficult to jam or spoof. With the broadest global coverage in the industry, Viaviโ€™s SecureTime service promises improved resilience against the increasing threat of cyber attacks. SecureTime integrates Navigation Message Authentication (NMA) for detecting spoofing, leveraging encryption across all received signals, including those from GPS which lacks NMA support.

SecureTime services are part of Viaviโ€™s extensive portfolio of resilient Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) solutions. This launch builds on Viaviโ€™s multisource assurance capabilities, combining signals from geosynchronous, low Earth and medium Earth orbits. These services have been rigorously tested and proven effective in live-sky battlefield scenarios, demonstrating their ability to provide assured PNT even when GPS and GNSS services are denied.

Viavi plans to integrate SecureTime services into its own product offerings and will supply receivers to third-party solution providers. The companyโ€™s SecurePNT 6200 hardware platform, which is powered by SecureTime Services and TrustedPNT multisource fusion technology, will benefit directly from this new service.

The SecureTime launch will enable Viavi to benefit significantly from increased market demand for secure and reliable PNT solutions. By providing a robust alternative to traditional GPS and GNSS systems, Viavi stands to enhance its reputation and expand its market share in the critical infrastructure and defense sectors. The innovative product launch underscores Viaviโ€™s commitment to leading the industry in innovative, resilient communication solutions.

Viavi boasts a comprehensive product portfolio that offers end-to-end network visibility and analytics that help build, test, certify, maintain and optimize complex physical and virtual networks. The convergence of network technologies requires significant investments from both traditional carriers (telecom and cable) and cloud service providers. Viaviโ€™s solutions are well-positioned to meet these rapidly changing industry trends, given its technology prowess, product depth and wide customer base.

The stock has lost 26.2% in the past year against the industryโ€™s growth of 54.6%.
