At the heart of all telecommunications is the need for precise timing and synchronisation for the network to deliver the speed and reliability that users demand. Rakon provides some of the most advanced timing solutions and is extremely well positioned in the global telecommunications infrastructure market as its frequency control technologies lie at the heart of these systems.
Many of Rakon’s products are designed into the lucrative new generation 4G devices and the LTE/4G network infrastructure – enabling connectivity everywhere in a networked world.
The world’s telecommunications infrastructure market is entering a dynamic era to cope with massive demand for data driven by smart wireless devices. This massive growth in wireless devices is fuelling global mobile data traffic, which will grow at an 18-fold increase to 2016 (CAGR of 78%). Source: Cisco.
Each new generation of communication devices requires a plethora of higher specification infrastructure equipment to support it to transmit and receive data with ever increasing speeds and bandwidth required.
The relentless rising demand for video is forcing network operators to accelerate capacity upgrades of their networks. This generational change in telecommunications infrastructure is the global momentum behind Long Term Evolution (LTE), which is marketed as ‘4G’.
Rakon has developed several unique and world leading solutions to address the needs of the telecoms market, with single Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators (OCXOs) which perform better than much more expensive competitor’s double oven solutions, through to Ultra Stable Temperature Controlled Crystal Oscillators (TCXOs) that push the boundaries of conventional performance limits.
Rakon’s Pluto® TCXO products are at the heart of many of the stratum 3 timing networks and are the TCXO of choice for most of the emerging small cell applications.
Rakon continues to stay at the forefront of technology with solutions for this continually evolving industry, precisely understanding the market requirements, developing innovative product designs and combining this with a cost effective global manufacturing base. Rakon has preferred supplier status with nearly all of the leading suppliers of telecommunications infrastructure in Europe, North America and Asia.
Telecommunication infrastructure equipment includes base stations, fibre optics, small cells and network timing. Rakon’s solutions for the telecommunications market are designed and manufactured in its facilities in the United Kingdom, France, New Zealand and India.
