We are very proud to continue our support of this event, which we have been a part of since its inception 15 years ago

SAN JOSE, Calif. — March 7, 2006 — Symmetricom, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide leader in precise time and frequency products and services, today announced that five timing experts from the company are featured speakers at the 15th Annual Workshop on Synchronization in Telecommunications Systems (WSTS ’06) sponsored by NIST’s Time and Frequency Division and ATIS (Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions) on March 14-16, 2006 in Broomfield, Colorado.

WHO:    Timing/synchronization experts from Symmetricom

WHAT:    15th Annual Workshop on Synchronization in Telecommunications Systems (WSTS ’06) sponsored by NIST’s Time and Frequency Division and ATIS

WHEN:    Tuesday, March 14 – Thursday, March 16, 2006

WHERE:    Omni Interlocken Resort, 500 Interlocken Boulevard, Broomfield, CO 80021

Symmetricom scientists will be presenting on the following topics:

  •     Atomic Clocks
  •     Sync Measurements
  •     Universal Timing Interface
  •     Using 1588 Hardware as a PDV Measurement Tool
  •     Applications Enabled When a Reference Clock is Available at End-Points
  •     Circuit Emulation Standards: Commonalities
  •     Characterization of IEEE 1588 Network Elements

“We are very proud to continue our support of this event, which we have been a part of since its inception 15 years ago,” commented Gurdip Jande, senior vice president of marketing for Symmetricom’s Telecom Solutions Division. “This workshop will bring attendees up to date with the latest information about synchronization in packet networks and beyond. New breakthroughs in technology are causing the scope and potential of the telecommunications industry to expand exponentially, and it is important to understand how precise synchronization and timing is critical for those who value success in this area.”

WSTS ’06 will investigate questions in a unique, interactive setting, including Sync requirements and solutions for the packet-based Next Generation Networks (NGN), Sync in wireless networks and emerging synchronization issues. The three-day interactive workshop will explore the need for Sync in the NGN and the possible solutions available. Network operators, strategists, design engineers, system architects and synchronization planners from the wireline, wireless, enterprise and utilities sectors will participate in interactive workshop sessions and panel discussions. The workshop has been taking place annually since 1992. ATIS and NIST have been collaborating as co-sponsors for eight years.
