MAHWAH, N.J. -- RAD Data Communications has announced that it has successfully concluded full interoperability testing with Symmetricom for synchronizing Next Generation Networks (NGNs), ensuring precise synchronization between UMTS Base Transceiver Stations (Node Bs) and the Radio Network Controller (RNC).

Recognizing that communications systems, especially infrastructure designed for cellular backhaul, as well as Triple Play services, require exact synchronization to be backhauled over Ethernet and IP packet-switched networks, Symmetricom developed a portfolio of Grand Master Clock solutions to support IEEE 1588V2 to ensure the highest possible level of synchronization over the NGN. RAD’s soon-to-be-released ACE-3220 cell site gateway will lock onto the Grand Master Clock to synchronize the system.

The global market for synchronizing communications networks over IP protocol is expected to burgeon as packet-based transport networks replace traditional TDM technology in the backhaul. A number of companies and telecommunications operators around the world are already evaluating these products.
