In order to participate, vendors must work with Symmetricom to develop a joint solution, complete successful solution testing and commit to ongoing technical and business activities to ensure joint success.

The company notes that Belden, Burns & McDonnell, Cisco, Kyland, Moxa, and Siemens/RuggedCom have joined the SyncWorld Power Ecosystem.

"With the introduction of the SyncWorld Power segment, we will drive collaboration and innovation among the industry's leading power utility vendors," says Manish Gupta, vice president of marketing at Symmetricom. "Whether it's comprehensive, integrated and simplified solutions for power utility customers, or extended sales and marketing reach for vendors, the SyncWorld Ecosystem Program offers benefits for all participants in the power industry."
