Technical Notes and Briefs: Time Server Port Isolation for Secure Networks When leveraging a single master clock / time server across several network segments there are various approaches to port isolation: software isolation, or hardware isolation via multiple processors, unidirectional communication of timing data, or electrical isolation by using fiber optics. pdf - 64 KB

Technical Notes and Briefs: Time Synchronization for Secure Networks using Fiber Government and military networks often utilize the concept of unclassified (black) networks vs classified (red) networks to manage levels of information security. Since a complete “air-gap” around a highly sensitive network is not practical, every data connection is evaluated as a security risk. To synchronize a master source of time on a red network, Spectracom offers a fiber optical IRIG time code link between a SecureSync master-slave pair to offer high accuracy timing to a classified network while satisfying the requirements of SIPRNET, NIPRNET and other ultra-secure network systems. pdf - 254 KB

Technical Notes and Briefs: NTP Server Capacity Testing 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.  pdf - 202 KB

Technical Notes and Briefs: Differences Between NTP and SNTP 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. pdf - 64 KB

White Papers: The Importance of Low Phase Noise in Military Mobile Applications Military communications and intelligence-collection functions, traditionally associated with fixed sites and large platforms, are being pushed to tactical vehicles and sophisticated Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (UAVs). This results in more C5ISR systems being installed on mobile platforms. Whether in the air, on land, or at sea, these vehicles will impart shocks and vibrations to their electronics, sometimes severely. In high vibration environments, the system designer must account for induced phase noise which can drastically affect overall performance. This white paper discusses the challenges of keeping low noise signals pure in any environment. pdf - 903 KB
