Enterprise NTP/PTP Time Server

SyncServer® S600 Time Server

Modern networks require accurate, secure and reliable time services. The security-hardened SyncServer S600 network time server delivers exact hardware-based Network Time Protocol (NTP) and Precise Time Protocol (PTP) timestamps. In addition to its unparalleled accuracy and security, the S600 offers outstanding and easy-to-use features for reliable network time services to meet the needs of networks and business operations today and into the future.

Rubidium Atomic Clock

The rubidium atomic clock upgrade improves the stability and ongoing accuracy, as well as the holdover accuracy, of the SyncServer S600 time server to possibly save the user valuable time. If the GNSS signal is ever lost, which places the unit in holdover, the rubidium atomic clock significantly improves the clock accuracy during the holdover period.

Security Hardening

Some applications require security enhancements above and beyond what might otherwise be acceptable. In addition to supporting the standard network security protocols, the SyncServer S600 time server can be configured to provide additional timing, operational and authentication security to create the most hardened NTP/PTP server. This makes the S600 an excellent choice for Zero Trust networks.

Multi-Port PTP Operations

The IEEE 1588 PTP output license enables PTP grandmaster operations that leverage the built-in hardware timestamping available in all SyncServer time servers. This single-option license allows the LAN 2, 3 and 4 ports, as well as the optional 10 GbE LAN 5 and 6 ports, to be uniquely configured as PTP grandmasters. This is a very cost-effective solution for scaling PTP grandmaster operations and increasing configuration flexibility. PTP can also be configured as an input time reference.

NTP Reflector Security

The SyncServer S600 time server implements real-time, hardware-based network packet processing in tandem with accurate hardware-based NTP timestamping, general packet limiting and alarming. This protects the S600’s CPU from excessive network traffic Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks and provides extremely high-bandwidth, high-accuracy NTP operations.

GPS Jamming and Spoofing Detection, Protection, Analysis

The SyncServer S600 time server’s BlueSky™ technology option detects GPS jamming and spoofing related anomalies in real time to protect essential time and frequency outputs. Alarms are triggered when unexpected changes are detected and trust is compromised. The BlueSky technology detectors respond to protect the integrity of the S600’s time and frequency outputs. 

Extensive REST API

The SyncServer S600 time server’s REST API follows the industry-standard OpenAPI specification 3.0 to provide full-featured status and control of the S600. The easy-to-use interface allows users to program their applications to automate configuration tasks, get status information and customize monitoring of specific parameters to meet their unique requirements.

The REST API is included with the SyncServer S600.
