Vitesse CTO Advocates IEEE 1588v2 as GPS Alternative in Communications Networks 
Delivers Keynote at WSTS 2013, an Expert Forum Focused on Timing and
Synchronization for Critical Network Infrastructure 
CAMARILLO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 --   Vitesse Semiconductor
Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC
solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, announced that Martin
Nuss, chief technology officer at Vitesse, will deliver a keynote
address at the 2013 Telcordia - NIST - ATIS Workshop on
Synchronization in Telecommunications Systems (WSTS) on Thursday,
April 18, 2013 starting at 08:30 am local time in San Jose, Calif. 
As wireless and small cells become pervasive, network operators face
new requirements for time synchronization due to the increasing
vulnerability of GPS. Dr. Nuss will examine these challenges in
mobile networks and explain the criticality of using IEEE 1588v2 as
an alternative or backup to GPS timing. He will also outline ways for
service providers to ensure highly precise, reliable, and secure
packet timing in telecom and other network infrastructure. 
Dr. Nuss has over 20 years of technical and management experience and
is a recognized industry expert in timing and synchronization for
communications networks. Dr. Nuss serves on the board of directors
for the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) and
is a fellow of the Optical Society of America and IEEE member. He
holds a doctorate in applied physics from the Technical University in
Munich, Germany. 
About WSTS
 WSTS and its sister conference ISTF in Europe represent a
global expert alliance focused on network timing and synchronization
for telecommunications and related applications. The forum tackles
the most pressing communications network design issues, including the
evolving network synchronization requirements, the roll-out of new
synchronization systems, the role telecom plays in backing up timing
for critical infrastructure: power, finance, communications, etc. and
impact on network operators and OEMs.
