Symmetricom offers multi-sync capability on TimeProvider 5000 Master Clock for carrier Ethernet and LTE

By Telecom Lead Team: Symmetricom, a provider of
precision time and frequency technologies, announced new capabilities for
its TimeProvider 5000, a carrier-grade IEEE 1588-2008 Grandmaster Clock
built to handle stringent frequency and phase requirements of  next
generation networks.


Enhancements include the addition of carrier-grade
Network Time Protocol (NTP), Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE), and T1/E1 support to
its industry leading Precision Time Protocol (PTP) synchronization


Service providers can ensure they have the necessary
timing protocols for 4G/LTE services. The TimeProvider 5000 Master Clock
is the first solution of its kind supporting legacy networks that will enable
service providers to deploy the necessary synchronization protocols to support
next generation services.


“The transition to Ethernet and the convergence of
IP-based voice, data and video are placing new demands on network
synchronization,” said Daryl Inniss, Components Practice Leader at


Upcoming rollouts of 4G/LTE mobile networks are also
adding new and unique timing demand on wireless backhaul. The forward looking
approach that Symmetricom is taking with its products and enhancements with the
TimeProvider 5000 is well targeted to provide operators with solutions for the
next wave of carrier services and network technologies.


“The demand for bandwidth has grown exponentially,
driving the need for increased capacity from mobile operators and the
subsequent deployment of 4G/LTE supporting small cells and femtocells. The
TimeProvider 5000 Master Clock is the industry’s first solution to deliver
multi-sync capabilities with massive scale on a single platform to support the
sync requirements of next generation networks,” said Manish Gupta, vice
president of marketing for Symmetricom.
