PTP80 GrandMaster Clock

The PTP80 GrandMaster Clock generates and distributes precisely synchronised time across packet networks to IEEE1588 v2 standard.

  • Uses Precision Time Protocol (PTP) to IEEE-1588 v2
  • Distributes time to remote PTP clients and slaves over a network
  • Multiple PTP80’s can be utilised for load sharing resilience and increased support
  • Advanced hardware-generated timestamps
  • GPS input source with multiple alternative inputs available
  • Internal disciplined oscillator continues to provide stability if input source interrupted
  • Rubidium or Quartz Oscillators
  • Choice of auxiliary outputs include 1PPS & 10MHz, E1/T1 and optional IRIG-B
  • Additional customer-specified outputs also available
  • Platforms: 19 inch 1U high rack mountable chassis
  • OEM Board design also available providing Equipment Manufacturers with a fast track PTP implementation

The PTP80 GrandMaster Clock incorporates hardware based time stamping, providing the highest level of timing and frequency over a broad range of wireline and wireless applications using Precision Time Protocol (PTP), described in the IEEE 1588-2008 version 2 standard.

Typical PTP80 GrandMaster Clock Applications Include:

  • Telecommunications
  • LTE
  • Ethernet / IP Backhaul (Synchronisation of Base Stations)
  • WiMAX
  • Broadcasting (Synchronisation of DVB / DAB Transmitters)
  • Power Utilities (Applications requiring Time of Day)
  • Applications requiring Precise Timing delivered over a Packet Network

PTP80 GrandMaster Clock System Benefits: 

  • Precise timing and synchronisation over Packet Based Networks
  • Rapid migration to Ethernet Backhaul in Mobile Networks
  • Interoperability with 3rd Party PTP Clients
  • Complete End to End PTP Solution with PTP8 Slave Network Time Client
  • SNMP and Web Management
  • Front panel has a large alphanumeric LCD, status indicator and 5-segment button for visual status and minimal configuration.
