SAN JOSE, Calif. and SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Symmetricom®, Inc. (NASDAQ:SYMM), a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technologies, and Contela, Inc., the leading provider for small cell coverage devices for telecommunication carriers, today announced the integration of the Symmetricom SoftClock into Contela's small cell solution. Contela also joins Symmetricom's SyncWorld® Ecosystem Program supporting the small cells category.
Contela worked closely with Symmetricom on integrating the ROSA-P (Rosalind public type) and ROSA-H (Rosalind home type) 4G LTE enterprise and residential femtocell devices with the LTE FDD standard. During the integration process, Contela's femtocell portfolio was shown to be capable of maintaining precise and constant synchronization using Symmetricom's SoftClock client software.
"Contela has had successful commercial experience with 3G/WCDMA small cell deployments and that has a lot to do with our leading small cell products that have integrated Symmetricom's NTP Client software with packet-based synchronization solutions," said Mr. Young-Kyu Kim, general manager of Contela. "The SCr/SCe NTP/ PTP and sGPS SoftClock from Symmetricom was selected for its quality to support Contela's 3G and 4G offerings."A recent report by NDP In-Stat predicts that the sale of small cell devices will hit $14 billion in retail value by 2015, due to increasing demand for mobile data services. This surge in mobile data services is placing an increasingly high level of stress on mobile networks that were not originally designed to anticipate intensive voice traffic. "Precise timing is an essential element of successful small cell network deployments to support LTE networks," said Manish Gupta, vice president of marketing and business development at Symmetricom. "We welcome Contela to the SyncWorld Ecosystem Program and look forward to more successful small cell deployments with our partners."
