RAD Joins the Symmetricom SyncWorld Ecosystem Program

RAD Data Communications joined the Symmetricom SyncWorld Ecosystem Program. The Symmetricom SyncWorld Ecosystem Program is formed to provide tested solutions for mobile backhaul synchronization over packet microwave networks. 




 Since Packet Switched Networks (PSNs) do not include inherent synchronization mechanisms, they require complementary clock transfer solutions. This is relevant to mobile backhaul and triple play services, which require exact synchronization.



Symmetricom developed a portfolio of Grandmaster Clock solutions. The Grandmaster clock supports IEEE 1588-2008, or Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Version 2, ensuring the highest possible level of synchronization over a PSN.


 Deployed at mobile base stations, RAD’s Mobile Demarcation Devices (MDDs), which support 1588-2008 as well as Synchronous Ethernet, lock onto the Grandmaster Clock, functioning as slaves to synchronize all elements within the system.



RAD is enthusiastic about joining Symmetricom’s SyncWorld Ecosystem Program,” said Ronen Guri, Business Development and Solution manager for Application Awareness, Wholesale and Mobile Backhaul Services at RAD Data Communications.



Mobile operators will now be able to seamlessly deploy the best timing over packet solutions the industry has to offer – RAD’s ETX-A series of MDDs, which provide slave clock, boundary clock and transparent clock capabilities, and Symmetricom’s IEEE 1588-2008 TimeProvider5000 Grandmaster clock,” Guri added.



To become part of the Symmetricom’s Ecosystem Program, RAD  conducted extensive performance and interoperability tests to verify the performance of 1588-2008 timing over microwave backhaul network configurations leveraging real-world deployment scenarios.


We are pleased to work with a vendor such as RAD, which is promoting the market adoption of IEEE 1588-2008,” said Manish Gupta, vice president Marketing at Symmetricom.



RAD Data Communications’ installed base exceeds 11,000,000 units and includes more than 150 carriers and operators around the world, including BSNL, Bharti Airtel, RCOM, AT&T, China Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, France Telecom, Hutchison, Orange, Telekom Austria, TeliaSonera, Telstra, T-Mobile, and Verizon. Utility customers include E.ON in Germany, Elia in Belgium, EDF in France, Enel in Italy, Beijing Power in China, and Hydro Quebec in Canada.
