ADVA Optical Networking Showcases Synchronization Assurance at ITSF 2013
MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany, Nov. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Multiple Seminars Reveal the Importance of Accurate Phase Delivery and Assurance
in Mobile-Backhaul Networks
ADVA Optical Networking announced
today that it will be hosting multiple seminars at ITSF 2013 on the importance
of timing and synchronization assurance in mobile backhaul networks. Held in
Lisbon, Portugal, ITSF 2013 is a three day conference that begins on November
5. ADVA Optical Networking will be hosting two key seminars during this time
that will further explain to the industry why performance-based synchronization
is critical in high-performance LTE and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) networks. These
seminars will also showcase vital strategies that mobile network operators will
need to adopt if they're to meet the challenges ahead.
"Mobile network operators are about to face some of the biggest challenges in
their history. The actions they take over the next year will directly impact
upon their customers and their bottom line," said Gil Biran, senior vice
president, corporate development and strategy, ADVA Optical Networking.
"Migrating to LTE and especially LTE-A is no small task, specifically when it
comes to phase synchronization delivery and assurance. Increasing the density of
radio base stations is only one part of the equation. Exact phase alignment
between them is required to deliver the improved bandwidth and user experience
that LTE-A promises - something that legacy backhaul networks simply cannot
assure. That's why we're at ITSF 2013. We're here to show the industry why this
topic is so vital to mobile backhaul networks and what they need to do to ensure
an effective migration."
As of today, the industry has not yet clearly responded to the significant
challenge ahead. However, mobile network operators risk the quality of mobile
services and, ultimately, customer experience if they don't take action. The
quality of timing and synchronization has a direct impact on both these factors.
Phase synchronization over packet networks is no small task and without
stringent assurance monitoring there's no guarantee that an LTE or LTE-A network
is operating as intended. The much vaunted target of 500ns phase accuracy
demands active timing distribution contribution from both the mobile network
operator and backhaul service provider. A challenging task if there is no
"What we're discussing at ITSF 2013 is more than just technology, more than just
networking, it's a blueprint, it's a design for the future of mobile backhaul
networks," commented Nir Laufer, senior manager, Research and Development, ADVA
Optical Networking. "The implications of what we're discussing here are immense.
User experience is critical in today's mobile networks. It's what differentiates
one mobile network operator from another. However, without an effective
synchronization and assurance strategy you won't be able to differentiate
yourself, at least not in a positive way. What's key here is that we move this
discussion forward. The demand for LTE-A is growing. The clock's ticking."
ADVA Optical Networking will be showcasing its synchronization technology,
including its FSP150SP sync probe device at ITSF from November 5 until November
7. More details can be found here: http://adva.li/itsf.
On November 7, Gil Biran will be discussing Time and Phase Delivery and
Assurance in Mobile Networks. Also on this day, Nir Laufer will be examining
Field Measurement Options for Network Operators.
Supporting slides from both presentations will be available to view from
November 7 on ADVA Optical Networking's SlideShare site: http://adva.li/slides.
