/PRNewswire/ --
Symmetricom®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide
leader in precision time
and frequency
technologies, today introduced new embedded timing and
synchronization solutions for residential and enterprise small cells. Available in
two versions, the SCr (residential) and SCe (enterprise) SoftClocks support
multiple timing protocols including IEEE 1588 (PTP), network time protocol
(NTP) and softGPS. This unprecedented software synchronization solution for
small cells leverages existing hardware resources in the system design to
support a variety of backhaul types and associated requirements.
Small cells are increasingly an essential element of the wireless infrastructure,
injecting increased capacity and coverage in high bandwidth consumption
areas where end-users reside and/or congregate. Synchronization of these
small cells along with macro base stations is crucial to maintaining seamless
end-user experience. Services such as voice call hand-off, video reception and
location-based services are negatively impacted when synchronization
parameters are not adhered to as set forth by the 3GPP.
The software based SoftClock offerings from Symmetricom allow small cell
designers to execute a single base design with options to integrate one or more
synchronization protocols for deployment in varied network topologies. Network
operators benefit with this multi-standard timing and synchronization flexibility
of the SoftClock by having a solution that can be deployed with multiple types
of backhaul and quality of service, enhancing the end-user experience and
minimizing customer churn. This approach reduces overall costs, enhances
time to market, and provides execution flexibility.
"As small cells are rolled out in the different home, enterprise and public access
domains, different synchronization solutions will be required to support them,"
said Patrick Donegan, senior analyst, Heavy Reading. "Anything that can be
done to simplify the deployment and operation of those different solutions
provides a significant value proposition to the network operator."
Symmetricom's SCr and SCe Small Cell SoftClock solutions have been
integrated and proven with leading processors, system software, and oscillators
from prominent vendors such as Broadcom, Mindspeed, Qualcomm Atheros,
Node-H, and Rakon, demonstrating solid market demand. This integration
enables network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and original design
manufacturers (ODMs) to complete their small cell system designs with lower
risk and faster time to market.
Arcadyan, a
Taiwan
based global supplier of communications equipment, is the
first ODM to have selected Symmetricom's timing solution for their small cell
offering.
"Symmetricom is uniquely positioned to offer the industry's most
comprehensive timing and synchronization offering specifically tailored for
small cells in support of 3G and 4G/LTE rollouts," said Manish Gupta, vice
president of marketing and business development for Symmetricom. "The SCr
and SCe are the industry's only software-based timing and synchronization
solutions that flexibly meet the demands of all network topologies, thus
preparing operators for any future network upgrades."
This addition to Symmetricom's portfolio complements the existing SoftClock
offering which provides multi-sync capabilities to support IEEE-1588, SyncE,
GNSS and T1/E1 for networking infrastructure including, metro small cells,
macro base stations, routers, switches and microwave backhaul. Symmetricom
has the industry's broadest portfolio of timing and synchronization solutions
representing all timing protocols, both embedded and systems based solutions
that support the timing needs of all elements in the communications network.
Symmetricom's newest small cell SoftClock offering now extends
Symmetricom's reach beyond the core to the edge and the premise of the
network.
