NTP Server Overview


SecureSync® combines Spectracom’s precision GPS master clock technology and secure network-centric approach with a compact modular hardware design in a 1RU chassis to result in a powerful, scalable and flexible NTP appliance.

Spectracom SecureSync back panel with cards

Supporting a wide variety of network synchronization and management protocols, the base model comes with a built-in 10/100 base-T Ethernet port for network management and high-performance NTP which can serve more than 7,500 NTP requests per second. It includes all the latest functions of NTPv4. It can be deployed in combination with other stratum-1 NTP server(s), can be used in a stratum-2 configuration, and can be expanded through option modules.

  • High bandwidth NTP performance
  • Stratum 1 via GPS and other references or Stratum 2
  • IEEE-1588 PTPv2 grandmaster option
  • STL Option - add STL to GPS or GNSS input references to improve resilience, or use STL alone for indoor applications.
  • Modular hardware supports variety of interfaces and timing signals including 3 additional 1 GbE ports
  • Multiple prioritized reference inputs
  • Internal precision time-keeping via TCXO, OCXO or Rb atomic clock
  • Secure web-based user interface
  • Built-in network sync monitoring option
  • Secure network management: enable or disable protocols
  • IPv4/IPv6 dual stack
  • Alert notifications via SNMP Traps and e-mail alerts
  • CLI/SSH access for automation and scripting
  • Best-in-class 5-year warranty


Options Modules Extend Synchronisation Capability

A unique capability of SecureSync is to add hardware options at initial deployment or later as your network grows. An option adds three (3) 10/100/1000 interfaces to deliver NTP to multiple isolated LAN segments at 1 GigE. Two other options add PTPv2 functionality to the unit. One option is for a configurable master/slave PTP operation over a 10/100 network interface. The other is for PTP grandmaster functionality at 1 GigE. Up to six (6) of either types of ports can be added. Each PTP port is configured and operates independently to improve PTP performance since its processor is independent of all others in the system.

Epsilon SAS Switch & Amplifier System

SAS-E is a high performance, highly manageable and reliable solution for distributing time and frequency signals for satcom, digital TV or audio broadcast, microwave links, satellite ground stations applications.

The Epsilon™ Switch and Amplifier System (SAS-E) provides a cost effective way to extend distribution of time and frequency signals (pulse, low phase noise frequency signal, Time of Day), as a signal amplifier. Thanks to analog amplification, SAS-E adds very little phase noise to the input frequency and ensures high RF isolation. It is therefore suitable for reference frequency distribution towards transmitters, up-converters, micro-wave links. Pulse regeneration is transparent to pulse duration and period: SAS-E is therefore suitable for distribution of any pulse encoded signal like 1 pps, DCLS IRIG, etc.
