Stocks in this article: SYMM

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Symmetricom ®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technologies, today introduced the launch of a new small cells-focused category within its SyncWorld® Ecosystem Program. Developed to support the integration with Symmetricom's SCr/SCe NTP/ PTP and sGPS SoftClocks and interoperability between Symmetricom Grandmaster clocks and other small cells solutions, the category aims to facilitate validated deployments of timing and synchronization with various small cells products in 3G and 4G/LTE architectures. Current partners in the program include leading small cell players Alcatel-Lucent, Broadcom, Cavium, Contela, CS Corporation, Mindspeed, Node-H, Qualcomm Atheros, and Rakon.

Small cells are a key component of 3G and 4G architectures as they add capacity to the mobile network and allow service providers the maximum leverage of scarce spectrum resources. Successful HetNet deployments require small cells to synchronize seamlessly with the macro base stations irrespective of backhaul type. Also, small cell design cycles need to be short to meet the fast evolving market needs. SyncWorld brings together all players in the ecosystem including semiconductors, oscillators, software, test equipment and system vendors to drive cost effective and shortened design cycles by enabling architectural harmony and interoperability.

Analyst firm Infonetics forecasts the global small cell market to grow to $2.1 billion in 2016 as small cells have emerged as a key solution to deliver increased network capacity. Symmetricom has delivered a number of solutions with partners along with the introduction of the industry's first small cell synchronization solution, SCr/SCe NTP/ PTP and sGPS SoftClocks for residential and enterprise small cells. The small cells segment within the SyncWorld Ecosystem Program will ensure that interoperability needs are met as service providers accelerate their deployment plans.

"The small cells category represents leaders across the entire value chain," said Manish Gupta, vice president of marketing and business development for Symmetricom. "Working together, SyncWorld small cell members will be able to give service providers a comprehensive, integrated and simplified solution that is interoperable and supports the specifications required to support 4G/LTE networks."

The SyncWorld Ecosystem Program enables vendors to cooperate with the goal of providing complete solutions that interoperate with the most recognized timing and synchronization solution provider in the industry. Vendors that produce silicon, small cell access point, software and oscillators are invited to apply for the program online at http://www.symmetricom.com/company/syncworld/partner-application/.

With solutions deployed globally in more than 150 networks, Symmetricom is committed to partnering with trusted end-to-end technology providers which deploy and maintain networks on behalf of operators.
