ADVA Optical Networking Educates Industry on Synchronization Assurance at 2013 Telcordia NIST/WSTS Workshop

Atlanta, Georgia -- ADVA Optical Networking
<http://www.advaoptical.com> announced today that the company is
presenting at the 2013 Telcordia NIST-ATIS Workshop on Synchronization
in Telecommunication Systems (NIST/WSTS), on April 18, in San Jose,
California.  Sponsored by NIST, Telcordia and ATIS-COAST, WSTS'13
provides a forum for high-level discussion and knowledge sharing among
synchronization experts.

Gil Biran, Senior Vice President Corporate Development and Strategy,
ADVA Optical Networking, will discuss the importance of SLA-based timing
distribution and assurance in mobile backhaul networks
<http://www.advaoptical.com/en/solutions/mobile-backhaul.aspx> for LTE
and LTE-A. This presentation includes updates on the latest sync probe
technology and details why performance-assured synchronization has
developed to be a central element in high-performance mobile networks.

  “The quality of timing and synchronization that you deliver over your
packet backhaul network has a significant impact on the quality of
experience of mobile services,” says Biran. “Whether it’s SyncE or IEEE
1588v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) – timing delivery is only one part
of the equation. End-to-end accuracy assurance with real-time
monitoring, alarming and advanced trouble shooting is the real key to
enable stable operation of the Radio Access Network (RAN). Without that
assurance, operators will find it difficult to capitalize on today’s
booming mobile broadband environment.”

The industry agrees that phase synchronization over packet networks
<http://www.advaoptical.com/en/innovation/synchronization-for-mobile-backhaul.aspx>
is difficult to achieve with the tight constraints imposed by LTE-A.
Since superior user experience became a key differentiator in many
saturated markets, mobile operators are increasingly worried about the
performance of their synchronization solution. The targeted 500ns phase
accuracy requires both, the mobile network operator and the backhaul
service provider, to actively contribute to timing distribution. On-path
support and in-service monitoring are key elements for a reliable and
scalable end-to-end synchronization architecture.

“Phase synchronization is the lifeline of the future RAN,” continues
Biran, “and progress on the engineering front has been phenomenal:
Today, timing can be distributed and assured throughout a network over
existing packet infrastructure. With next-generation demarcation,
aggregation and probe devices
<http://www.advaoptical.com/en/products/carrier-ethernet/fsp-150sp.aspx>, timing
performance can be continuously monitored in-service and alarmed if
needed. This synchronization management solution empowers operators to
ensure accurate timing distribution at lowest cost of ownership.”
