Symmetricom, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM) announced it is supporting two new international customers with the company's network synchronization solutions. The adoption of Symmetricom's products by Globe Telecom, a full-service telecommunications provider in the Philippines, and Powercor Australia, Victoria's largest electricity distributor and provider of network infrastructure for more than 64 percent of Victoria, illustrate the growing demand for network synchronization solutions in the international market.
All communications networks -- whether wireless, wireline, long-distance, local or cable -- require proper synchronization to eliminate low data throughput, degraded voice quality and jerky video transmission. As global wireline and wireless networks expand, the appropriate level of network synchronization is required to maximize bandwidth efficiency and ensure the highest quality transmission of voice, data and video.
Globe Telecom which provides wireline, digital wireless, international telephony, interexchange carrier (IXC) service, data communications and Internet services, worked with CSI, Symmetricom's distributor to the Philippines in selecting a Symmetricom solution. Globe selected Symmetricom's TimeSource 3600, a standalone Primary Reference Source (PRS), the DCD-Cs Cesium Primary Reference Source and the DCD-519, a third-generation synchronization and timing distribution system that provides the accurate clock references needed throughout a network.
Powercor's network extends from the western suburbs of Melbourne to the Murray River and the South Australian border. More than 10,000 new customers connect to the Powercor network each year. Acterna, Symmetricom's Australian distributor, delivered Symmetricom's TimeSource TS3100 PRS and DCD-521/C synchronization and timing distribution system to support the deployment of Nortel Networks' OPTera Metro 4000 Multiservice Platform, a fully-managed optical transport system that addresses a broad range of multi-rate application needs in SDH-based access, metropolitan and regional backbone networks.
