The Worlds of Telecom and Datacom are merging. As the telecom/datacom core shifts from synchronous to asynchronous, new methods of providing sync for applications have been developed into standards. This Workshop, now in its 18th year, is the unique industry-neutral forum in North America for staying current with this revolution. WSTS and its sister conference ITSF in Europe represent a global alliance of pre-eminent experts in synchronisation for telecom and related applications. Many of these experts act as steering group members for both conferences, as well as sit on various standards bodies including ITU, ATIS, IEEE and IETF. Charles Curry is a member of the Steering Group.
The 2010 conference was held in Broomfield, Colarado, USA, from 20th-22nd March 2012. View details here»
