DTS4160.grandmaster (i) supports a number of network technologies, including Ethernet, and is primarily intended to be used on dedicated Local Area Networks (LANs) and SDH/SONET networks for clock synchronization. E1 framed/unframed ideal output for telecom applications offering 4 x 2.048MHz, 75 Ohm unbalanced frequency outputs as well as BITS 2.048Mbps framed outputs.
Any active network element, such as a switch or router that is added to a network, increases latency and jitter; reducing the quality of the clock synchronization that is possible. PTP aware switches, known as PTP Transparent Switches or Boundary Clocks, can reduce the impact of switching and queueing latency in the PTP network. The hardware includes IPv6 options for PTP and NTP services, as well as expanded GNSS support options including GPS, GLONASS, and Beidou. The DTS4160.grandmaster (i) PTP Grandmaster offers a hardware-based NTP server capabilities, allowing network operators to simultaneously support both PTP and NTP clients in the network. The NTP server is capable of supporting up to 10,000 transactions per second on all 04 ports.
