Jun 13, 2011




Mansfield, MA - June 13, 2011 - Telco Systems, a multi-service Carrier Ethernet access and demarcation solution provider and Symmetricom, Inc. (NASDAQ:SYMM), a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technology, have announced that Telco Systems has partnered with Symmetricom to embed IEEE1588v2 technology into the Company’s mobile backhaul solution.
The combined solution ensures the delivery of precise timing and synchronization over packet-based networks.

“Rigorous tests have shown that the combined Telco Systems and Symmetricom solution using 1588v2 technology provides a resilient and scalable packet-based mobile backhaul solution which meets legacy TDM performance,” stated Nir Halachmi , MBH Product Line Manager for Telco Systems. “By partnering with Symmetricom, we provide operators with a highly reliable and accurate clock synchronization mechanism, and enable them to expedite deployments and deliver a proven and cost effective time synchronization solution that fits their network needs.”

“Timing and synchronization requirements are becoming stricter as networks transition from TDM to packet based services,” stated Manish Gupta, vice president marketing for Symmetricom. “The combined carrier grade synchronization solution ensures delivery of precise synchronization to deliver optimal network performance to meet demanding performance requirements.”

Telco Systems provides a complete mobile backhaul edge solution, using Carrier Ethernet and IP/MPLS as transport technologies. The solution supports a variety of synchronization technologies (1588v2, SyncE, ACR) and synchronization interworking to provide optimized and flexible support of different customer networks. Together with state of the art QoS and HQoS, OA&M and sub 50ms resiliency, Telco Systems enables a true carrier grade solution. CES (Circuit Emulation Services) support creates a smooth migration path between 2G, 3G and 4G networks, allowing a mix of technologies to be co-located at the same cell site. By providing an intelligent edge solution Telco Systems enables the providers to offer mixed services over a single converged network for increased revenue and lower CAPEX and OPEX. Telco Systems’ mobile backhaul devices were specifically designed to support the most challenging field installation requirements including pico base station deployment.

Symmetricom has played a key role in timing and synchronization for wired and wireless networking products that adhere to the standard. Their SyncWorld™ Ecosystem Program represents all elements of the mobile value chain from embedded to network equipment manufacturers to support precise timing and synchronization requirements for 4G/LTE deployments that ensure seamless integration for service provider networks. As an interoperability member of Symmetricom’s SyncWorld™ Ecosystem Program, Telco Systems will work closely with other SyncWorld partners to conform to pre-defined interoperability parameters that will speed deployment of LTE and 4G networks.
