Qulsar Boasts Small Cell Timing Engine
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Qulsar, Inc., a provider of embedded time synchronization solutions, today announced the release of its next generation Managed Timing Engine (MTE) 6X series platform. This plug-and-play platform meets the exacting synchronization requirements of 4G LTE wireless networks, smart power grid and the Internet of Things markets.
Mobile technology standards, such as TD-LTE and LTE-Advanced, continue to drive the need for precise timing. The next generation 4G LTE infrastructure relies on higher precision timing to efficiently handle an increasing traffic load over a finite spectrum and mitigate interference, thereby improving the quality of service. The growing sophistication and deployment complexity of HetNets and small cells, inherent in next-generation networks, places a burden on network operators to deploy ubiquitous, precise time synchronization. Environmental factors such as urban canyons and indoor coverage challenges require the capability to derive timing from multiple timing inputs (such as GNSS/GPS, IEEE 1588 PTP and Synchronous Ethernet) for a robust solution.
Until today, time synchronization solutions have remained fragmented in their approach, without the flexibility to handle the rapidly evolving changes in mobile network architectures. Qulsar’s MTE is a versatile synchronization solution that meets the requirements of network architectures which are deployable in multiple scenarios.
