Is your network PhaseReady?

attend the Phase Ready Seminar from Chronos

Phase Ready?

As you think about the evolution of your network, don't limit your thoughts to the frequency stability you need now. We want to help ensure that network roll-outs today will still be relevant come the explosion of HetNets and Small Cells.

Chronos participating at Small Cells World Summit: 10-12 June 2014

Wednesday 11 June 2014, 11:50 at London ExCel

Steve Newcombe of Chronos is participating in the Panel Discussion: Time and Timing Distribution for Small Cells at the Small Cells Backhaul Summit at 11:50 hours on 11 June.  Topics include the latest developments in timing standards and what this means for small cells; how timing equipment affects the network architecture; ToD sync methodologies in cellular networks; strategies for delivering ToD accuracy at low cost in LTE and small cell networks.

Chronos’ extensive practical experience in deploying industrial grade GPS systems, traditional synchronisation networks and current research with indoor UTC traceable time using the new eLoran technology has helped us to understand the real challenges operators face as they move to deployment of LTE-A services.  Phase synchronisation between macro and small cells must be achieved if key services such as eICIC and CoMP are to operate effectively and reliably.  Chronos is now offering a new range of services designed to help network operators assess and prepare their networks for these new challenges as they prepare to rollout LTE-A services.

Chris Roberts, Strategic Marketing Manager at Chronos said, “Achieving precise phase performance at the edge of complex networks now requires planners and installers to have knowledge of Radio Frequency (RF) engineering. Anyone can install a cable from a GPS antenna to a Grandmaster clock to enable a green LED to light but it is far harder to find contractors with the RF engineering skills to ensure it will operate as expected in large scale, complex networks. Chronos has this experience; come and talk to us.”

Join us at 'Phase Ready' in London on 8 May and win an iPad mini

Join the sync experts from Chronos and Symmetricom and Industry Keynote Prof Simon Saunders and Operator Keynote Martin Kingston of Everything Everywhere at Chronos’ complimentary event in London 8 May 2013 to find out if your network is phase ready.

The migration from SDH to Carrier Ethernet continues; moving from the “certainties” of SDH timing to PTP and Synchronous Ethernet.  Now we see the next timing challenge on the horizon – PHASE synchronisation at the network edge.  And the key driver for this requirement is not that networks will be using Time Domain transport technologies like LTE-TDD, but the coming of LTE-A, Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets), Small Cells, Enhanced InterCell Interference Coordination (eICIC) and Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP).

There will be an opportunity to win two Apple iPad minis supplied by Chronos and Symmetricom.

Martin Kingston of EE to deliver Operator Keynote at Phase Ready

Chronos is pleased to announce that Martin Kingston, Principal Designer for Mobile Backhaul with EE,  will be delivering the Operator Keynote at Chronos’ Phase Ready event taking place in London on 8 May 2013 at Kings Place.

Martin is a Principal Designer for Mobile Backhaul at EE.  He has over 20 years’ experience in communications; amassing a broad knowledge of fixed, mobile and internet services combined with a deep understanding of transmission and transport technologies. He began working on terrestrial and satellite communication systems for outside broadcasts at the BBC before moving to Orange UK were he gained extensive experience of synchronisation in mobile networks and evolution to next generation transport network architectures in a converged mobile, home and business service provider.  Martin is currently working with a team of Senior Designers developing design strategy and solutions for packet transport networks to support the next generation of radio access technologies.

Over the next few years mobile networks will see an exponential increase in data traffic as a result of the introduction of 4G LTE technology.  Phase synchronisation at the network edge, particularly in urban hotspots, will be necessary sooner rather than later.  Chronos’ Phase Ready event will enable delegates to find out if their networks are  4G LTE-A phase ready and ensure that network rollouts today will still be relevant come the explosion of Small Cells, HetNets  and Coordinated Multipoint services (CoMP).

Registration

Join us at the Phase Ready event which is FREE at Kings Place in London on 8 May to listen/talk to Martin, Prof Simon Saunders who is delivering the Industry Keynote and sync experts from Chronos and Symmetricom and find out if your network is Phase Ready.
