Brandywine Communications started a new range of instruments utilizing the Precise Time Protocol (PTP).This new line using IEEE 1588 PTP can be used in many applications including TE, WiMAX, Ethernet Backhaul, Passive Optical Networks (PON), Circuit Emulation Services (CES), Electrical Power Distribution, Automation & Motion Control, Test and Measurement, and for many Military apps.
PTP, as described in the IEEE 1588-2008 version 2 standard, enables extremely precise synchronization of networks with an absolute timing accuracy of better than 100 nanoseconds to UTC, using hardware-generated timestamps. This provides significant improvements on the accuracy of network-distributed time over Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers.
The PTP80 IEEE 1588 GrandMaster Clock generates and distributes precisely synchronized time to remote PTP clients and slaves across packet networks. Benefits include:
- Advanced hardware-generated timestamps
- ±100 nanosecond timing accuracy (when locked to GPS)
- Choice of outputs include 1PPS & 10MHz (IRIG-B & E1/T1 optional)
- Rapid migration to Ethernet Backhaul
- SNMP and Web Management
The IEEE 1588 PTP Slave Network Time Client provides network service providers and equipment manufacturers with a packet-based timing and synchronization solution.
The PTP Slave eliminates the need to install embedded PTP client solutions thereby providing a rapid upgrade for deploying packet-based timing with an immediate cost saving and a quick return on investment.
The IEEE 1588 PTP Slave Network Time Client enables operators to lower operating costs migrating from a TDM to Ethernet backhaul and is equipped with E1/T1, 1PPS and 10MHz ports for synchronizing remote network equipment such as UMTS, LTE, WiMAX and PON devices.
