TransPacket Joins Symmetricom SyncWorld Ecosystem Program

SAN JOSE, Calif. and OSLO, Norway, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Symmetricom ®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technologies, today added TransPacket, provider of Ethernet transport nodes enabling fixed and predictable network delay, to Symmetricom's SyncWorld® Ecosystem Program.


Known for providing innovative solutions to data packet infrastructure, TransPacket's unique fusion networking technology enables tunneling with fixed delay for any Ethernet synchronization protocol. The TransPacket Ethernet H1 node uses fusion technology to combine the properties of circuit and packet transport within the same link. This enables Ethernet transport with both fixed predictable network delay and high capacity utilization.

The company qualified as a SyncWorld Network Equipment Partner by validating synchronization distribution through transparent tunneling of IEEE 1588 packets with fixed delay through a network of 10 TransPacket Ethernet H1 nodes.

"By joining the Symmetricom SyncWorld Program, our goal is to bring synchronization to a new level of flexibility in networks that depend on precise timing," said Steinar Bjørnstad, CEO of TransPacket AS. "We look forward to jointly delivering solutions with Symmetricom that meet the timing and synchronization requirements in 4G/LTE networks, as well as energy and utility grid network infrastructures."

Symmetricom's Network Equipment Partners are technology vendors that have conducted extensive interoperability testing with Symmetricom products to ensure effective operation of the joint solution in specific scenarios. Network Equipment Partners participate in the SyncWorld Ecosystem Program in a variety of ways, including technical, marketing and field support.

"We are excited to have TransPacket join the SyncWorld Ecosystem Program and support interoperability across all the elements of the mobile value chain," said Manish Gupta, vice president of marketing and business development for Symmetricom. "Predictable network delay is critical to delivering high quality of services and operators benefit from availability of such interoperability."
