Carrier Class NTP
In the operation of Carrier-Class communication networks, secure and accurate timing is absolutely vital. When something means this much to your business and meeting the needs of your customers, compromise is simply not an option.
Available Products with IEEE 1588 Capability :
The Symmetricom IEEE 1588 Blades are fully integrated into the SSU 2000 system. These Cards can be installed as single servers or redundant pairs in any available master or expansion shelf output slot. PTP capacity scales up at a rate of up to 400 full rate clients per card. Front-access IEEE 1588 traffic ports utilize Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) modules for flexibility to support 100 Base-T electrical or 1000Base-X optical or electrical interfaces. All configuration and management is consolidated through SSU 2000 system management ports to maintain security and isolation from IEEE 1588 ports.
Symmetricom’s NTP blades for the TH 5500 allow your networks to meet modern 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. With the introduction of high performance NTP servers on a card, the BITS platform can now deliver carrier-class NTP to meet demanding NGN Packetime requirements. The product also features additional security in the form of dual NTP ports found on the Timehub blades. Timehub’s NTP Server cards provide the performance, scale, availability and security to assure high QoS delivery of advanced services such as IPTV.
NTP requirements in telecommunication networks have rapidly evolved from a “best effort” utility to mission critical. With high performance NTP server cards the SSU 2000/SSU 2000e platform delivers carrier-grade NTP to meet demanding next generation network requirements. The NTP server cards provide the performance, scale, availability and security that assure high QoS delivery of advanced services such as IPTV, multimedia content delivery and residential small cells, as well as distributed BSS/OSS operation.
The TimeProvider 500 is a standalone Precision Time Protocol (PTP) client that enables network service providers to accelerate the upgrade of their existing network infrastructure to accommodate the next-generation, packet-based timing and synchronization solutions. As a standalone device, TP 500 enables seemless migration of wireless base stations, DSLAM’s, LTE equipment and other end-point network devices to PTP, providing immediate cost savings and a quick return on investment.
The TimeProvider® 5000 NTP server offers the capacity and high performance features carriers require to support mass market, packet-based services such as IPTV and femtocell synchronization. Built as an optional capability add-on to the TimeProvider 5000 System, the TimeProvider 5000 NTP Server upgrade provides a carrier grade solution that employs a high precision time engine and hardware redundancy to provide the scalability and performance required for rapidly evolving carrier services and network expansion.
