GPS-Based Timing Solutions for Unmatched Precision

Sync and timing for GPS begins with a quality signal from antenna to ingress to timing equipment. As part of our turnkey solution for network timing, our Field Services includes GPS antenna installation. Resilient and professional GPS install is a key component to your network. With Syncworks’ dedicated technicians well-versed in installs for all types of building access, grounding needs, ingress points, and weather conditions, your GPS antenna will be installed to the highest standards.

When a clock goes in holdover due to a failed GPS signal, the cause can be range from a failed ground, a delamination of a printed board, a loose connection, a failed antenna head, or interference from a natural source. Correct antenna positioning is vital to timing reliability.

A GPS antenna requires a 360° visibility of the horizon.  Roof mounted antenna enable for more accurate GPS clocks since at least three satellites are required to be in view at all times to maintain timing accuracy (typically nanoseconds to UTC). Our antenna designs include this key component. Our technicians ensure the optimal location for all elements of the antenna installation.
