NTP Blades for TimeHub
Deliver Carrier Class Performance for Carrier Class Applications (BITS)
Symmetricom’s NTP blades enable your networks to meet today’s mission-critical requirements for the delivery of advanced services such as IPTV Content and Delivery, Billing Record Management, IP SLA Monitoring, and QoS Measurement Systems/Probes.
Our NTP server cards can be installed as single servers or redundant pairs in any available master or expansion shelf output slot. NTP capacity scales up at a rate of 1000 fully authenticated transactions per second for each added card. Front-access NTP traffic ports utilize Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) modules for flexibility to support 100/1000 Base-T electrical or 1000 base-x optical interfaces.
You can provide added security and flexibility with dual NTP traffic ports that support independent public and private network domains. And you can consolidate your configuration and management through TimeHub system management ports to maintain security and isolation from NTP traffic ports.
NTP Stratum 1
Establish NTP Stratum level 1 UTC time traceability with a simple connection to the TimeSource PRS Time-of-Day (ToD) output. For offices without a PRS, NTP server cards can be configured with an optional GPS, or can operate at NTP Stratum level 2 with UTC time traceability back to a NTP Stratum 1 card in another office.
