Chronos Technology announced today that it joins Symmetricom’s, (NASDAQ:SYMM), SyncWorld™ Ecosystem Programme established to promote interoperability among vendors to support the implementation of precise timing and synchronization solutions.
Chronos’ SyncWatch monitoring system supports performance measurements of IEEE 1588-2008, SyncE and traditional synchronisation signals. SyncWatch provides tangible evidence of end-to-end sync performance enabling operators to migrate with confidence to packet technologies. The transition to all-IP networks and migration to 4G LTE networks demand strict timing and synchronisation requirements. Successful integration and interoperability and performance monitoring are key to ensuring that customers’ end-to-end deployments will maintain service continuity around the clock.
To meet new synchronisation and timing requirements that support the transition to packetised backhaul networks and 4G LTE mobile platforms, Symmetricom has established the SyncWorld™ Ecosystem Program to enable interoperability and cooperation among the vendors who will deliver on service providers’ advanced networking requirements.
Chris Roberts, Business Development Manager with Chronos said “Symmetricom is committed to partnering with trusted end-to-end technology providers that deploy and maintain networks on behalf of operators. Chronos is pleased to join the program in the new Communications Test & Measurement category.” He added “Chronos’ SyncWatch technology was designed from operator requirements that called for independent evidence of the end-to-end performance delivered by the different synchronisation delivery technologies that are found in modern evolving networks. SyncWatch complements the sophisticated synchronisation delivery platform that Symmetricom offers its customers”.
“We are pleased to have Chronos join the SyncWorld Ecosystem program,” said Manish Gupta, vice president of marketing with Symmetricom. “Effective measurement including long term monitoring of network performance is a key requirement to ensure precise end to end timing and synchronisation across the network.”
