Packet Timing Solutions

Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is the standard that guarantees both phase and frequency alignment across the entire packet network. Packet network infrastructure relies on PTP to synchronize timing devices across the network.

Essential components of the synchronization architecture are the grandmaster, slave and boundary clocks. A Grandmaster clock provides standard time information to other clocks across the network A slave clock depends on the master clock for its accuracy, whereas a boundary clock can act as either a destination or source of synchronization information.

Protempis’s portfolio of products addresses all these needs.

Thunderbolt® PTP Grandmaster Clock GM200

The Protempis Thunderbolt® PTP Grandmaster Clock is designed for the telecom market, for use at the edge of wireless networks requiring phase synchronization. The GM200 provides continuous availability of UTC traceable time for phase synchronization, a must for LTE-Advanced networks and services.

The Thunderbolt PTP GM200 employs industry-leading Protempis GNSS performance, and world class holdover technology.

The PTP GM200 tolerates harsh environmental conditions, supporting both indoors and outdoors deployments with an extended operating temperature range (-40 to +85 C). The Thunderbolt PTP GM200 supports small cells networks that require phase synchronization. Although it is designed with keeping small cells in mind, it meets Marco base station requirements for synchronization.

Due to the Protempis GM200’s small size, low cost, superior accuracy, reliability and flexibility of deployment options, the risk of network re-configuration and load variance on IEEE-1588 signal quality is reduced.
