Telecommunications networks are undergoing radical and long-term change. It's a gradual process. But it's certain that the changes are accelerating and growing more extreme. The reason is simple: End users want to use the networks to do far more demanding and sophisticated things than before.

The network supporting such a system must serve up enough bandwidth and be close enough to databases to perform the task between the time a person checks in and boards the plane. It must do this many times a minute ...

Today’s rapidly evolving mobile networks and backhaul technologies make cell site synchronization a greater challenge than ever before. 4.5G and 5G applications demand new levels of frequency and phase accuracy. Outside of telecommunications, timing technologies are now equally important. From data center interconnectivity to vital government defense networks, phenomenally precise synchronization is essential across all industries ...
