The TimeProvider® 5000 supports the new ITU-T G.8275.1 Telecom Profile for Phase Synchronisation enabling cost-effective deployment of Next Generation Services

Lydbrook, Gloucestershire, UK  11 March 2015– Chronos’ partner Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC) has announced its award-winning TimeProvider® 5000 Software Release 2.2, adding ITU-T G.8275.1 phase synchronisation profile support with a software upgrade and license key. The new software release now supports Synchronous Ethernet and the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) phase profile. The PTP phase profile will help customers use the available spectrum more efficiently and deliver a more reliable network.

The software upgrade is for both existing and new network deployments and allows operators to extend their installed base of PTP GrandMaster clocks to support the new ITU-T G.8275.1 phase profiles.

With full support of the new ITU-T G.8275.1 phase profiles across its TimeProvider® 5000 core and TimeProvider® 2000 series edge PTP GrandMaster clocks, Microsemi enables wireless operators to seamlessly migrate their networks forward to assure high quality of service for LTE-A and small cell deployments.  Preparing networks for phase synchronisation requires engineering synchronisation and timing from the end points back, and Microsemi's flexible PTP solutions portfolio along with its TimePictra® synchronisation management platform provide operators with essential synchronisation infrastructure to enable LTE-A and small cell services.
