TimeProvider® 4100

TimeProvider 4100: Precise Synchronization Solution
The TP 4100 serves as an IEEE 1588 v2 PTP grandmaster, offering PTP, NTP, and SyncE capabilities. Meeting Primary Reference Time Clock Class A, B, ePRTC specifications, and Class C and D specifications for multidomain boundary clocks, this device boasts key features such as:

  • High capacity: Supports up to 1,000 PTP unicast clients at 128 PPS
  • Reliable performance: Fanless passive thermal operation ensures stability
  • Redundancy: Software mechanisms enable two active and standby units
  • Advanced technology: Patented enhanced APTS with Automatic Asymmetry Compensation (AAC)
  • Secure operation: Zero-trust security grandmaster with robust timing protection
  • Performance monitoring: Includes phase and legacy signal monitoring

Upgrade your critical infrastructure with the TimeProvider 4100 for accurate, reliable, and secure time synchronization.

TimeProvider 4100 Product Highlights


In the virtual Primary Reference Time Clock (vPRTC) architecture, to minimize the dependency on GNSS, receivers are only required in the core enhanced Primary Reference Timing Clock (ePRTC) sites where they can be protected and monitored to shield the network from the risk of GNSS jamming or spoofing threats.

The TP4100 ensures redundancy via bi-directional east and west timing flows to local source clocks in aggregation sites with 100 ns of accuracy.

You can configure our TP4100 clock in the following ways:

  • In ePRTC operation mode to provide 30 ns accuracy at the source of timing chain
  • As a high-performance boundary clock to deliver high accuracy over a secure optical network
  • As a gateway clock on the protected PTP southbound timing flow towards 5G Remote Radio Heads (RRHs)

Key Benefits


Flexible Technology

The TimeProvider 4100 supports legacy and new technologies such as Frequency, Phase, E1/T1, IEEE 1588. Additionally, it handles different modes of operation: Gateway Clock, HP BC, ePRTC.

Resilient Solution

Capable to manage more than one PRS. As a back up to GNSS, the TimeProvider 4100 handles also PTP Input, APTS, AAC. Available with MiniOCXO, OCXO, or Rubidium oscillator, and dual DC power inputs.

State of the Art

The TimeProvider 4100 supports existing and future standards/trends, including 1588 Phase profiles, and PRTC compliance. It is a modern platform with the latest electronics – FPGA.

Management

Provides monitoring for PTP, 1pps, and a presentation GUI. Compatible with TimePictra platform that provides full FCAPS for monitoring and management of customer’s Sync Portfolio available.
