“Symmetricom’s next-generation precise time and frequency solutions are designed to maximize network performance and synchronization allowing telecommunications carriers, Internet service providers and enterprises to maintain a competitive advantage,” commented Charlie Ferreira, business development director for EMEA at Symmetricom. “At WiMAX World, we will be highlighting how network synchronization is crucial for wireless networks and particularly wireless mobility applications such as 2G, CDMA, UMTS and WiMAX.”

Featured Products

TimeProvider™ 3.0 is the latest version of Symmetricom’s innovative network access synchronization system that includes NTP server/client with MD5 authentication, RS-422 output signals supporting 1.544 and 2.048 MHz frequencies and an integrated IMC/TPIU card that saves valuable rack space. TimeProvider’s innovative architecture combines the tasks of tracking incoming timing references, qualifying signals, filtering and distributing precise synchronization onto a single universal Input, Output and Clock card (IOC).

Symmetricom's TimeGPS ™ is a GPS controlled frequency source that offers a low-cost GPS solution for synchronization and retiming telecommunications networks. The TimeGPS receives GPS satellite signals to control an onboard oscillator and provides three output signals.

Symmetricom’s SyncServer S200/S250 are high-performance GPS network time servers that synchronize clocks on computers and servers for large or expanding networks and are optimized for the ever-demanding high-bandwidth next-generation networks (NGNs). Numerous design features include scalability and security, high availability and throughput of three independent 10/100Base-T Ethernet ports with IPv6 support, and extreme ease of use with an intuitive web interface with various set-up wizards, all needed to support an NGN.

Symmetricom will also be exhibiting its GPS Timing Antenna that is a highly reliable, user-friendly, super-low-cost source of precision GPS time. An antenna, GPS receiver, system interface and power supply are all integrated into one rugged, weatherproof, easy-to-install package. A one-pulse-per-second (1 PPS) signal synchronized to the GPS system within 110 ns is automatically provided when the 58534A is locked to the GPS satellites.
