Stocks in this article: SYMM

SAN JOSE, Calif.  and LYNNWOOD, Wash., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Symmetricom ®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM) a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technologies, and Pletronics, Inc., a leader in innovative frequency control solutions, announced today that Pletronics has joined Symmetricom's SyncWorld® Ecosystem Program Small Cells Category. The Pletronics temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXO) have been extensively tested and are qualified to be used with Symmetricom SCr and SCe SoftClocks for Network Time Protocol (NTP) and IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP).


The transition to all-IP networks and move to 4G/LTE networks demand strict timing and synchronization. Successful integration and interoperability are key to ensuring that customers' end-to-end deployments will maintain service continuity without interruption. To meet these requirements and support the transition to packetised backhaul networks and 4G/LTE mobile platforms, Symmetricom established the SyncWorld Ecosystem Program to enable interoperability and support cooperation among the manufacturers and suppliers who will deliver products for service providers' advanced networking requirements.

"Precise timing and synchronization are essential for successful deployment of small cells," said Claude Lee, President at Pletronics. "With small cells placing extreme demands on the reference oscillator for timing solutions, the strategic partnership with Symmetricom will allow us to meet industry needs as these rollouts continue."

The addition of Pletronics to the newly launched SyncWorld Ecosystem Small Cell Category will provide further benefits for network equipment and small cell manufacturers by offering state-of-the-art precision timing solutions. Specifically, the Pletronics temperature compensated voltage controlled crystal oscillators (TCVCXO) provide the precision and accuracy essential for the Symmetricom SCr/SCe software for Network Time Protocol (NTP) and Precision Time Protocol (PTP).

"We welcome Pletronics as the latest member to the Small Cells Category of our SyncWorld Ecosystem program," said Manish Gupta, vice president of marketing and business development for Symmetricom. "As small cells continue to gain momentum, it's important to have partners such as Pletronics, a leading supplier of high-quality crystals and oscillators, to meet service providers' timing and synchronization requirements."

As part of its effort to educate the mobile industry on the importance of timing and synchronization, Symmetricom will be presenting at the upcoming Mobile World Congress, taking place February 25-28, 2013 at the Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain, and showcasing its comprehensive portfolio of standards-based solutions for small cells and LTE deployments. Additionally, Symmetricom will launch a new series of advanced synchronization solutions specifically designed to support small cell and LTE deployments at the show.
