Symmetricom launches carrier-grade NTP synchronization server to support femtocell rollouts

By Telecom Lead Team: Symmetricom, a provider of precision time
and frequency technologies, has launched the TimeProvider 5000 NTP
Carrier-grade Synchronization Server to support femtocell rollouts.


Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a timing technology suited
for femtocell, IMS, IPTV and billing applications. 


The market has seen a 40 percent jump in global femtocell
revenue worldwide from last year, signaling a growing role for femtocells in
supporting coverage and capacity requirements, according to Richard Webb,
directing analyst for microwave and small cells at Infonetics Research.


“Demand for data is exploding and more operators are
looking to roll out femtocell to offload traffic from their network, and extend
coverage to their customers. Working with partners like Symmetricom and having
a product such as the TimeProvider® 5000 NTP Server ensures that our customers
will be able to scale to meet their needs today and in the future,”
said Giuseppe Targia, head of NWS Packet Networks Partner Product
Management at Nokia Siemens Networks.


The TimeProvider 5000 NTP Server is a timing reference
that enables telecom providers to build a more stable, robust and reliable
network infrastructure.


“The fast growing femtocell market requires scalable
solutions. The TimeProvider 5000 NTP Server is the highest performing
carrier-grade NTP server available for the service-provider market to support
multiple applications requiring high levels of resiliency,” said Manish
Gupta, vice president of marketing for Symmetricom.
