SSU 2000 Integrated Primary Reference Source

Syncworks has new SSU 2000 units, replacement cards and parts for your SSU 2000. Contact us for more information.

The SSU 2000 is an intelligent, fully manageable Synchronization Supply Unit or Timing Signal Generator designed to meet the latest and evolving industry standards. It is a fully manageable carrier-grade synchronization systems used by communications network operators to generate and distribute superior synchronization signals for their networks. It conforms to ANSI standards and is NEBS certified and provide frequency network timing capabilities for SDH/SONET networks.

SSU 2000

Input Flexibility

The SSU 2000 integrates single or dual GNSS primary receiver cards to meet primary reference clock requirements. Two cards are available: one supports both GPS and GLONASS, the other is GPS only. The systems also supports multiple input cards; versions are available for T1, E1, JSW and JCC (Japan), 1 MHz, 1.544 MHz, 2.048 MHz, 5 MHz and 10 MHz.

Intelligent Clock Cards, Superior Holdover Performance

It accepts single or dual clocks. Three clock cards are available to meet different international standards and specific holdover requirements; ITU-T Type 1 (ETSI Slave Clock, enhanced quartz oscillator), Type II (Stratum 2E, enhanced rubidium oscillator), and Type III (Stratum 3E, enhanced quartz oscillator).

High Output Capacity, High Availability Architecture

The architecture is designed to integrate intelligent, functional cards into a flexible, fully redundant system to satisfy current capacity and sync technology requirements and allow incremental capacity growth and deployment of new capabilities with additional plug-in cards as they are needed. The SDU 2000 Synchronization Distribution Unit expansion shelves connect to a corresponding SSU 2000 main shelf to provide additional output signals. The expansion shelves use the framing and synchronization features of the main shelf to drive an array of output cards. Any combination of T1, E1/2048 kHz, Composite Clock and RS-422 output cards may be installed. T1 and E1 output cards may be configured in redundant pairs providing twenty 1:1 fully protected outputs per pair. A fully configured SSU 2000 system provides T1/E1 output total capacity of up to 1280 unprotected ports or 640 protected ports.

SSU 2000 Resource

NOTE: There is an SSU 2000e and here is one difference: The SSU 2000’s main shelf supports 8 output cards, providing up to 160 unprotected outputs. The SSU 2000e’s main shelf supports up to 6 output cards, providing up to 60 protected or unprotected output ports. Up to four expansion shelves can be added, providing up to 400 additional protected or unprotected output ports.

About Syncworks

Syncworks is a the national leader in GPS security. Critical infrastructure in the US is a top priority at the highest level of government. Our mission is to enable, educate, and support efforts to become complaint with celestial and terrestrial GPS systems working together.
Our flagship product, the TimeProvider® 4500, is a gateway clock that accepts multiple inputs from Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), Synchronous Ethernet (SynE), and IEEE 1588 PTP Grandmaster Clock and E1/T1 digital transmission links.  

As of January 1, 2024, we have expanded our Field Services to include Antenna Installation and Entrance Facility Cabling, Legacy Equipment Decom and Traffic Migration, Disposal (hazmat) Services, Radio Commissioning (MW, P-LTE, CBRS), Enterprise Wi-Fi.
