Season's Greetings and welcome to the Telecom edition of Chronos Times. Synchronisation has never been more important for cellular networks as it will be over the next few years. Spiralling customer and application demands for bandwidth on the move means networks will want to use every Hertz of spectrum they have available to them - including TDD spectrum - and will need to implement advanced services and technologies such as Carrier Aggregation, LTE Broadcast and Small Cells. These services need strict (microsecond) phase alignment between cells, or between network layers. Whether you plan to deliver this phase performance from the core, aggregation layer or edge of your networks, Chronos has the solutions and expertise to help prepare, plan and implement these synchronisation services.
