IEEE 1588 PTP Solutions
IEEE 1588 (also known as Precision Time Protocol or PTP) is the emerging standard for providing precise timing and synchronization over packet-based, Ethernet networks. Symmetricom's best-in-class IEEE 1588 solutions address a wide variety of applications ranging from precise carrier class synchronization and precise time stamping to the test and measurement of PTP networks. These solutions enable Symmetricom customers to directly benefit from lower-cost, higher-capacity packet-over-Ethernet network infrastructures without sacrificing precise timing and synchronization requirements.

Symmetricom's comprehensive portfolio of IEEE 1588 server products provide the highest level of reliability and performance available on the market today. All Symmetricom IEEE 1588 servers incorporate true "carrier class" features such as redundant power supplies, redundant clock cards and port bonding to guarantee the five-nines (99.999%) reliability and uninterrupted service demanded by equipment manufacturers and network service providers worldwide. This high level of reliability, combined with high performance and FPGA-based packet time stamping, makes Symmetricom IEEE 1588 servers the gold standard for providing precise timing and synchronization over next generation, packet-based IP networks.
IEEE 1588 Boundry Clock
Most mobile backhaul networks were not designed to deliver the timing and synchronization accuracy needed by many 4G/LTE and small cell deployments. Symmetricom’s TimeProvider 2300 Edge Boundary Clock will overlay existing deployments with a synchronization distribution architecture that can meet these new requirements.

Ethernet and IP are rapidly replacing traditional TDM circuit infrastructure in the communications network. This creates "timing islands" in the network, potentially causing service impairments. Mobile services are especially vulnerable as they require precise synchronization at base stations. Therefore, there is an urgent need for a method to deliver synchronization via the packet network. Symmetricom's IEEE 1588-2008 client portfolio offers just such a solution. It includes three flexible client options for both carriers and network equipment manufacturers.
