Framework for Synchronization and Timing in the NGN: Deploy Carrier Class NTP to Improve ARPU & Revenue Assurance – Time and frequency synchronization are surprisingly crucial to mobile service providers’ Internet Protocol/Call Detail Record (IIP/CDR) reconciliation, at the heart of billing and logging services. Learn how you can meet revenue assurance targets, reduce ‘revenue leakage’ and increase ARPU through the implementation of well engineered carrier class NTP services.

These papers are intended to help service provider network architects, planners, and engineers, design, and deploy stable, robust Synchronization and Timing architectures to support Next Generation applications and services to be deployed on these networks. This document specifically addresses the implementation of Network Time Protocol (NTP) services to support Billing and Logging at optimal cost using Symmetricom carrier class NTP blades and servers.
