Unique Synchronization Innovation

Delivering Network Performance Accuracy


Implementing precise frequency and phase/time synchronization has become more costly and challenging for mobile operators. For example, newer LTE Time Division Duplex (LTE-TDD), LTE Advanced (LTE-A), and 5G systems place stringent phase and time synchronization requirements on transport networks.

Coriant leads the industry in the development of embedded synchronization technology for packet networks with patented technologies that far exceed common industry implementations and fulfill the promise of next-generation wireless services. Our state-of-the-art hardware architecture bypasses normal packet processing to improve accuracy and leverages proprietary designs and sophisticated DSP algorithms. Through a combination of GNSS-equipped cell site routers and embedded IEEE 1588v2 functionality, Coriant enables future-proof mobile backhaul (MBH) and fixed mobile convergence (FMC) transport by providing phase and time synchronization solutions that:

  • Avoid interference between overlapping cells with eICIC when deploying small cells in urban environments
  • Support Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) and multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) transmissions in which several base stations transmit concurrently to a single handset
  • Enable new location-based services, multimedia broadcast services, and real-time Internet of Things (IoT) applications
