Stocks in this article: SYMM

SAN JOSE, Calif. and HSINCHU SCIENCE PARK, TAIWAN, June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Symmetricom®, Inc. (NASDAQ:SYMM), a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technologies, today announced a new partnership with FiberLogic Communications, Inc., the leading provider of transportation, operation and precision (TOP) solutions for Carrier Ethernet mobile backhaul networks through the SyncWorld® Ecosystem Program.


FiberLogic Communications worked closely with Symmetricom on validating the compliance of its OptiQNet842 and OptiQNet852, an access-based Ethernet Demarcation Devices (EDD), with the IEEE 1588-2008 standard. Throughout the rigorous testing, FiberLogic's Carrier Ethernet portfolio was shown to be capable of maintaining precise and constant synchronization with Symmetricom's carrier-grade TimeProvider® 5000 IEEE 1588-2008 Grandmaster Clock.   

"Transportation, operation and precision are the three definitive factors for a reliable service offering in next generation mobile backhaul networks," said Dr. Wendell Lee, general manager of FiberLogic Communications. "As a top choice among packet-based timing and frequency solutions in the industry, Symmetricom's TimeProvider 5000 has helped validate our FiberLogic's Carrier Ethernet technology."

According to the recent report on Ethernet Access Devices (EADs) from Infonetrics Research, the EAD worldwide revenue hit $821M in 2011. The report also states that the EAD market saw a 17% increase over 2010, and is growing as a direct reflection of Carrier Ethernet connections to businesses, with backhaul from buildings and DSLAMs, and a growing mobile backhaul application.

"Precise timing is an essential element of successful Carrier Ethernet network deployments to support LTE networks," said Manish Gupta, vice president marketing at Symmetricom. "We welcome FiberLogic Communications to the SyncWorld Ecosystem Program and look forward to more successful backhaul deployments with our partners."
