Chris Farrow, Technical Manager with Chronos Technology is presenting at CW TEC ‘5G, Satellites & Magic MIMO’ on 26 September. Chris’s talk, ‘Sync Architectures for 5G NR’ will look at how the challenges caused by the revolutionary changes in network architectures since the first mobile networks have been overcome to deliver precise time & timing for 5G.
Chris has been ‘in sync’ since the mid-1990s when he was involved in significant upgrades with the UK’s major telecom operators as they rolled out SDH and their first dedicated Sync Networks. At Chronos Chris is responsible for professional services focused on the sync product area including delivery of the Synchronisation MasterClass, Sync Audits, network planning consultancy and acts as a system architect for product development. Chris has extensive practical knowledge of precise time & timing generation and distribution systems from atomic clocks to GNSS and networked distribution technologies.
Chris is an active member of standards groups focused on sync & timing including the ITU (SG15/Q13). Chris joined Chronos from Marconi’s UK Technical Assistance Centre where he was a sync product specialist and emergency support engineer for the entire product portfolio – from PSTN to optical & packet.
