Skylight Indoor GPS Timing System
Even though synchronizing network master clocks and time servers to GPS is well-known as the standard for the most time-sensitive applications, some data centers and critical server locations are not conducive to traditional roof-top GPS antenna installation.

SecureSync® combines Spectracom’s precision GPS master clock technology and secure network-centric approach with a compact modular hardware design in a 1RU chassis to result in a powerful, scalable and flexible time server.

Supporting a wide variety of network synchronization and management protocols, the base model comes with a built-in 10/100 base-T Ethernet port for network management and high-performance NTP which can serve more than 9,000 NTP requests per second. It includes all the latest functions of NTPv4. It can be deployed in combination with other stratum-1 NTP server(s), can be used in a stratum-2 configuration, and can be expanded through option modules.

  • High bandwidth NTP performance
  • Stratum 1 via GPS and other references or Stratum 2
  • IEEE-1588 PTPv2 grandmaster option
  • Modular hardware supports variety of interfaces and timing signals including 3 additional 1 GbE ports
  • Multiple prioritized reference inputs
  • Internal precision time-keeping via TCXO, OCXO or Rb atomic clock
  • Secure web-based user interface
  • Built-in network sync monitoring option
  • Secure network management: enable or disable protocols
  • IPv4/IPv6 dual stack
  • Alert notifications via SNMP Traps and e-mail alerts
  • CLI/SSH access for automation and scripting
  • Best-in-class 5-year warranty

Spectracom Enterprise-Class SecureSyncOptions Modules Extend Synchronization Capability

A unique capability of SecureSync is to add hardware options at initial deployment or later as your network grows. An option adds three (3) 10/100/1000 interfaces to deliver NTP to multiple isolated LAN segments at 1 GigE. Two other options add PTPv2 functionality to the unit. One option is for a configurable master/slave PTP operation over a 10/100 network interface. The other is for PTP grandmaster functionality at 1 GigE. Up to six (6) of either types of ports can be added. Each PTP port is configured and operates independently to improve PTP performance since its processor is independent of all others in the system.

Along with precision 10 MHz and 1PPS outputs, all other physical synchronization signals can be generated as options so you can leverage your networking timing deployment to specifi c devices. Many of these signals can be used as references for redundancy or for other applications such as syncing across security boundaries via optical fiber.

Reliability and Scalability Supports All Timing Network Architectures

Several features support reliability and redundancy. Multi-GNSS operation is available as an option to add GLONASS signals to the GPS reference to improve signal availability. SecureSync can also be deployed without the expense of a GPS receiver to operate as a stratum-2 server. Units among the same stratum can be set as NTP peers. Any other timing source can also be a reference such as T1/E1, time code, 1PPS, etc. You set the priority from all the available references. An internal oscillator maintains timing accuracy if all references are lost. Choose from TCXO, 2 types of OCXO and Rubidium.

A Network-centric Approach

SecureSync is a security-hardened network appliance designed to meet rigorous network security standards and best practices. It ensures tamper-proof management and extensive logging. Robust network protocols are used to allow for easy but secure configuration. Features can be enabled or disabled based on your network policies. Installation is aided by DHCP (IPv4), AUTOCONF (IPv6) or SLAAC, and a front-panel keypad and display, and a command-line interface. A modern web browser user interface supports the configuration unit and an optional monitor of synchronization quality throughout the network.
