Conemtech unveils new network assisted synchronization service platform

Oct 02, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) -- Conemtech AB, a provider of packet based network synchronization products, has unveiled a new reference platform for synchronizing large networks.

The new M60 products will help to deploy synchronization techniques for operators to enhance the capacity and user experience. The M60 incorporates several of the modern network synchronization technologies starting to be deployed in numbers including global satellite time references, Precision Time Protocol from Grandmasters and Synchronous Ethernet.

Its low latency pass-through technology enables an upgrade of existing installations in form of low cost add-on dongles, or, becoming part of new designs by replacing some generic standard parts found in all network equipment.

The increase of subscribers and new mobile services inevitably leads to an increasing number of subscriber access points in the cellular networks. For a large scale network with many small cell sites a synchronization service of high quality means better user experiences and a higher utilization of the frequency spectrum allocated to provide services to the increased number of subscribers. The scenario gets even more complex with the convergence of telecom networks with smart grid. The M60 is tailored to this scenario of new generation networks and especially the Internet of Synchronized Things.

"Our design philosophy in the making of the M60 is to provide large networks with a number of available synchronization methods in a low cost form to effectively synchronize a massive number of nodes. This can only be achieved by miniaturizing the technology and making it replace other components with it's budgets and footprints", says Ola Andersson CEO of Conemtech.

"With the M60 we have chosen the physical layer interface component, the PHY, as the main device to replace besides the oscillator. Wrapped in our instantPTP product packaging with transparent and clear interfaces, the advanced features of the M60 can be used by all designers of network capable equipment, both in telecom and smart power grids which share some similar inherent properties." The first version of the M60 will ship to customers in December this year with series production planned for 2014.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.

SDN can be the "GPS" Data Center Networks Need

Almost 30 years ago, I came to the USA to attend college, and in my early years as a student I spent every winter, spring and summer break traveling to different parts of this beautiful country.

How Fiber Mountain Future-Proofs Your Data Center

By now you most likely noticed that one of the topics I focus on continually is the problem data centers face today in meeting bandwidth needs. Until now, data centers were forced to purchase fire-breathing, million-dollar core switches to handle the growing volume of traffic, a solution that is both expensive and inefficient.
