TimeCreator 1000 DTI Server
Deliver the most reliable and precise time and frequency synchronization available on broadband cable networks
The flexible deployment of The TimeCreator 1000 enables network operators to balance economics, scalability, functionality and carrier class reliability against the demand of consumers for high-speed, high-bandwidth networks. TimeCreator 1000 is a fundamental part of a cable operator’s headend or hub network deploying M-CMTS, DOCSIS 3.0 or Business Services over DOCSIS. The TimeCreator 1000 provides cable operators with an essential part of the infrastructure they need to build secure, fast, state-of-the-art networks while increasing scalability and flexibility for advanced, next-generation standards including DOCSIS 3.0.
Designed to Meet the Demands of High-Performance Cable Networks
TimeCreator 1000 is a compliant DOCSIS Timing Interface (DTI) Server with optional GPS traceability, redundant clock cards, redundant power supplies and an NTP Server option. For carrier class systems supporting voice and other critical applications high reliability can be achieved by configuring the TimeCreator 1000 with redundant power supplies and clock cards for hitless switching. In applications where either Stratum 1 traceability is needed for interconnecting sites, interfacing with other carriers, Business Services, location management or Time of Day services, TimeCreator 1000 supports optional GPS traceability.
Integrated DOCSIS Timing Interface Server Ensures Frequency & Timestamp Sync
DOCSIS Timing Interface Server capabilities ensure that the M-CMTS core, Edge QAM and upstream are synchronized to nanosecond levels to support the existing DOCSIS requirements for frequency and timestamps that existed in the traditional CMTS. With TimeCreator 1000 in an M-CMTS architecture, a cable modem receive its synchronization from the Edge QAM so that it is synchronized to other cable modems to properly transmit to the upstream burst receiver.
Performs Client-Side Management, Monitoring and Calibration
TimeCreator 1000 manages the synchronization quality of the network not only at the server side, but at the client output as well. TimeCreator 1000 continuously monitors each individual client's performance as well as automatically calibrating the client and detecting any timing loops at startup.
Built-in Redundancy for Continuous Operation
With two DTI Servers built into the TimeCreator 1000, this unit combines redundant capability with the ease of management provided by a single device and single interface.
