Symmetricom Introduces New Line of Embedded Sync Software Solutions

New Integrated IEEE 1588 Solutions Provide Carriers with More Versatility and Higher Performance while Minimizing Hardware Footprint, Power and Costs

SAN JOSE, Calif. — March 8, 2010 — Symmetricom®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a major supplier of precise time and frequency technologies, today announced the company is introducing a new line of embedded software solutions. These new comprehensive solutions enable network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) to easily incorporate Symmetricom’s proven synchronization technology into their offerings to provide their customers with more versatile, high performing solutions.

“Providers have been demanding increased visibility and control of their evolving network infrastructure,” commented James Armstrong, EVP and general manager at Symmetricom. “As Carrier Ethernet adoption increases, there is a growing need for synchronization solutions that provide greater levels of flexibility, robustness and management capabilities. Symmetricom’s embedded solutions enable NEMs to deliver just that.”

Symmetricom’s line of embedded solutions enables NEMs to leverage years of real-world experience and provide their customers carrier-class reliability and precision along with enhanced levels of scalability and technology integration. Symmetricom embedded technology is more versatile than silicon solutions, has been field proven in trials and deployments and shown to be industry-leading in performance. With Symmetricom embedded solutions, NEMs now have a simpler and faster path to integrate a wide range of timing technologies while achieving smaller footprints, lower power consumption, improved manageability and overall cost reductions.

Symmetricom embedded solutions are based on its acclaimed timing technologies, such as BesTime®, a patented technology developed and extensively tested for primary reference source quality timing and extended to packet timing technology. These embedded solutions offer the flexibility to support a variety of platforms around popular embedded processors and operating systems and include a set of APIs and a reference design board.

The availability of Symmetricom’s IEEE 1588 (PTP) embedded technology expands the company’s end-to-end suite of synchronization solutions. Now, both NEMs and operators can benefit from Symmetricom’s expertise and its high performance, integrated solution set which includes boundary clocks, unique client technology, a sophisticated management platform and monitoring, analysis and testing tools to ensure network readiness.
