Vitesse CTO Advocates IEEE 1588v2 as GPS Alternative in Communications Networks

Delivers Keynote at WSTS 2013, an Expert Forum Focused on Timing and Synchronization for Critical Network Infrastructure

CAMARILLO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2013) -  Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, announced that Martin Nuss, chief technology officer at Vitesse, will deliver a keynote address at the 2013 Telcordia - NIST - ATIS Workshop on Synchronization in Telecommunications Systems (WSTS) on Thursday, April 18, 2013 starting at 08:30 am local time in San Jose, Calif.

As wireless and small cells become pervasive, network operators face new requirements for time synchronization due to the increasing vulnerability of GPS. Dr. Nuss will examine these challenges in mobile networks and explain the criticality of using IEEE 1588v2 as an alternative or backup to GPS timing. He will also outline ways for service providers to ensure highly precise, reliable, and secure packet timing in telecom and other network infrastructure.

Dr. Nuss has over 20 years of technical and management experience and is a recognized industry expert in timing and synchronization for communications networks. Dr. Nuss serves on the board of directors for the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) and is a fellow of the Optical Society of America and IEEE member. He holds a doctorate in applied physics from the Technical University in Munich, Germany.
