Both traditional and next generation communications infrastructure requires precise time to ensure the Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) that customers demand for voice, video and data services. Symmetricom’s full suite of synchronization, timing and monitoring products maximize the network’s performance and expedite the delivery of next generation digital services while bringing a new level of flexibility and dynamic configuration to the network.
Optimizing the transition to LTE
As telecom providers and network carriers begin rolling out 4G/LTE, Symmetricom timekeeping ensures the highest quality of service possible.
Once a routine network function, timing and synchronization requirements are changing rapidly as mobile network and backhaul technologies evolve. Carriers successfully solved the problem of distributing frequency synchronization through asynchronous Ethernet backhaul networks using IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and/or Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). Looking forward, LTE-Time Division Duplex and LTE-Advanced impose new, very stringent time and phase synchronization requirements. With the advent of small cells, several additional backhaul technologies are in the mix. Together, stringent timing for phase and new backhaul technologies for small cells have pushed cell site synchronization issues to the forefront.
Symmetricom timing and synchronization solutions enable efficient wireline communications and delivery of IPTV services and generate precise call detail records to streamline network billing.
As the global leader in timing and synchronization solutions, Symmetricom has a full suite of end-to-end solutions to meet the precise timing requirements of wireless operators.
Symmetricom frequency and phase synchronization solutions enable cable service providers to deliver more bandwidth efficiently to end-users over the same assigned frequencies, provide on-demand programming and ensure accurate billing.
