PTP80 Elite GrandMaster Clock

The PTP80 Elite GrandMaster Clock from Time & Frequency Solutions generates and distributes precisely synchronised time across packet networks using the IEEE 1588 v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP).

The PTP80 Elite GrandMaster Clock differs from the standard PTP80 in that it has 2 Ethernet ports instead of one, both of which have Gigabit Ethernet capability, plus an SFP connector allowing connection to other media such as fibre.

  • Uses Precision Time Protocol (PTP) to IEEE-1588 v2
  • Distributes time to remote PTP clients and slaves over a network
  • Multiple PTP80’s can be utilised for load sharing resilience and increased support
  • Advanced hardware-generated timestamps
  • GPS input source with multiple alternative inputs available
  • Internal disciplined oscillator continues to provide stability if input source interrupted
  • Rubidium or Quartz Oscillators
  • Choice of auxiliary outputs include 1PPS & 10MHz, E1/T1 and IRIG-B (optional)
  • Additional customer-specified outputs also available
  • Platforms: 19 inch 1U high rack mountable chassis
  • OEM Board design also available providing Equipment Manufacturers with a fast track PTP implementation

The PTP80 Elite GrandMaster Clock incorporates hardware based time stamping, providing the highest level of timing and frequency over a broad range of wireline and wireless applications using Precision Time Protocol (PTP), described in the IEEE 1588-2008 version 2 standard.
