Symmetricom Awarded Frost & Sullivan's 2012 Global Technology Innovation Award

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Symmetricom ®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technologies, today announced that it has been awarded Frost & Sullivan's 2012 Global Technology Innovation Award for its accomplishments in LTE synchronization. This recognition validates that Symmetricom's end-to-end solutions have defined a new standard in supporting the strict timing and synchronization requirements for successful LTE and LTE-Advanced rollouts. 


LTE deployments require Ethernet/IP in backhaul networks. This migration from SONET/SDH to Ethernet/IP creates complexity in achieving reliable timing and synchronization, which is critical to the reliable delivery of voice, data, location-based services and other applications on LTE networks. To reap the benefits of Ethernet backhaul, networks must support stringent frequency and phase requirements, and embrace packet timing protocols such as IEEE 1588 (PTP) to support 4G/LTE services.

"Frost & Sullivan's analysis clearly shows that Symmetricom has set new standards in LTE synchronization by successfully conducting the industry's first LTE synchronization interoperability tests over IPv6," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Mariano Kimbara. "With the telecommunications industry rapidly migrating from 3G networks to LTE/4G networks and backhaul providers shifting from TDM to IP and Ethernet-based infrastructures, Symmetricom's industry-leading solutions in network synchronization and timekeeping are crucial in shaping the future of the industry."

The Technology Innovation Award is presented to the company that has excelled in the following five key criteria: uniqueness of technology, impact on new products/applications, impact on functionality, impact on customer value and relevance of innovation to industry.

Symmetricom's technology and market contributions in LTE synchronization includes a robust product portfolio consisting of a broad range of systems and embedded software solutions that extend from the network core to small cells. Innovations include delivering the industry's highest capacity PTP Grandmaster, first multi-sync SoftClock client for network infrastructure, macro cells and small cells, rubidium atomic clocks and the industry-leading synchronization management solution.
