Chronos Technology

Time and Timing Products

Network synchronisation or sync, is essential in every telecoms network. It ensures services offered over that network and between independent networks are reliable and continuously available.

Good synchronisation helps assure quality of service delivery. This is a key differentiator in the increasingly competitive world of telecom carriers.

We have provided core and access layer synchronisation equipment since the early 1990s. Clients include most UK wireless and wireline carriers and many non-UK carriers.

The perils of poor synchronisation

Poor sync leads to loss of traffic and degraded performance in wireline networks. It leads to dropped calls and loss of handover capability in wireless networks. Poor synchronisation will almost inevitably lead to significant loss of revenue. Astute operators recognise this key linkage. See an article from the IET Communications Engineer, by Charles Curry entitled "The Network Pacemakers."
