IEEE 1588 provides precise network synchronization for 5G infrastructure by distributing time-of-day across packet-based networks. Adoption of 1588 solutions helps eliminate cost, reliability and line-of-sight issues related to GPS time synchronization and enables new 5G services that provide higher bandwidth connectivity while minimizing interference between cell sites.
“Silicon Labs and Qulsar share a common vision of developing simplified solutions that ease the adoption of IEEE 1588 in a wide range of infrastructure applications,” said James Wilson, General Manager of Timing Products at Silicon Labs. “The addition of Qulsar’s software and modules to our 1588 network synchronizer portfolio uniquely positions us to address this fast-growing market opportunity with turnkey, carrier-grade solutions that simplify 1588 integration and accelerate time to market.”
“The combination of Qulsar’s 1588 hardware-software solutions and Silicon Labs’ physical layer timing products will enable Silicon Labs to accelerate product innovation and deliver highly integrated, easy-to-use precision timing solutions for a broad range of applications,” said Rajen Datta, President and CEO of Qulsar. “Qulsar remains committed to the IEEE 1588 and precise time synchronization market. We look forward to partnering with Silicon Labs as we pivot our business model to focus on advanced system-level time synchronization and real-time sensor fusion solutions for emerging mobile infrastructure, automotive and IoT markets.”
