SecureSync PTP Grandmaster

SecureSync PTP Grandmaster

  • SecureSync master oscillator for land mobile radio

PTP Grandmaster Overview

DISA Approved - Approved Products List for DoD NetworksAs methods of data transfer evolve, so too does the need for increased speed in information transmission.

Precision Time Protocol (PTP), as defined by the IEEE 1588 standard, provides the most advanced method of synchronization over Ethernet networks. Spectracom supports Precision Time Protocol Version 2 (PTP v2) in its SecureSync PTP Grandmaster Clock system. The standard configuration includes up to 6 PTP ports to operate various PTP deployments, allowing for maximum scalability to handle the expansion of your network infrastructure.

  • PTP grandmaster 1 GbE port via copper and fiber optic interfaces (SFP module)
  • Industry-best ±4ns time stamp resolution (HW time stamping)
  • Better than 25 nanosecond time stamp accuracy to UTC
  • Supports default, enterprise and telecom PTP profiles
  • STL Option - add alternative signals to GPS or GNSS input references to improve resilience, or use STL alone for indoor applications.
  • Provides multicast, unicast, and hybrid mode addressing
  • Available time code reader/ generator options
  • High bandwidth PTP performance
  • Ethernet 10/100 Base-T communications port for set-up and management
  • Other PTP configurations are available

Details

Equipped with the latest and most innovative 10/100/1000 Base-T Gigabit PTP Option Card on the market, the SecureSync High-Speed PTP Grandmaster Clock boasts industry-leading packet throughput and data processing power. The installment of an optional slave-ready 10/100 Mb PTP Option Card creates a powerful master-slave combination to satisfy even the most rigorous timing requirements.

Standard RF and fiber optic interfaces via SFP modules provide the ability to select between either of the two media relative to your specific needs, greatly reducing the effects of distance limitations within your system architecture.

Success Stories

More Info
Thesys Technologies solved these requirements: (1) a highly reliable and accurate GPS-source of time; (2) The ability for the GPS time server to distribute time to multiple networks and physical locations; (3) Sub-microsecond synchronization between company servers and the GPS time server; (4) Eliminate any potential backward time adjustment that was observed with a PTP client as correctly sequenced events is a must.

More Info
NTP (Network Time Protocol) and SNTP (Simple Network Time Protocol) are very similar TCP/IP protocols in that they use the same time packet from a Time Server message to compute accurate time. The procedure used by the Time Server to assemble and send out a time stamp is exactly the same whether NTP (i.e. full implementation NTP) is being used, or if SNTP is being used.

Coverage problems were created when analog systems were narrow-banded. Mission critical communications
demand the ability of officers in the field to communicate when necessary. Simulcast and receiver voting
can improve talk-in with maximum return on your investment – which is far less expensive than a major
infrastructure build-out to add channels or a forklift radio change to P25 or DMR.

More Info
Large-scale NTP deployments require consideration for the network’s time synchronization architecture. Network time deployments are usually driven by considerations for reliability, scalability, manageability and security. The capability of modern NTP servers, such as Spectracom SecureSync® and NetClock® time servers, is such that capacity does not impact the design of the synchronization architecture.

More Info
Reliance on GNSS is now commonplace. However, all GNSS systems share a common vulnerability: their signals are very weak. GNSS satellites operate from Mid-Earth Orbit (MEO), approximately 20,000-25,000 km above the earth, to provide the best coverage and geometry for triangulation. As such, the transmitted signal is extremely weak upon arrival at the surface of the earth – so weak that it is weaker than the surrounding radio noise. Special signal processing techniques recover the GNSS signal from the background noise, but the weak signal strength at the user’s receivers makes GNSS navigation very susceptible to interference.
