Net.Time Τ

Net.Time Ꚍ (Tau) is a carrier-grade Primary Reference Clock, ITU-T G.811, suitable for synchronization supply to digital networks. Net.Time Ꚍ accepts a wide variety of time references and provides the widest range of timing signals to facilitate network integration.

Net.Time Ꚍ is a Grandmaster Clock supporting 1 Gbit/s interface that can be configured as master, slave, and boundary clock, providing multiple input/output options (GNSS, PTP, NTP SyncE, ToD, PPS, T1/E1, MHz) and allowing many combinations to ease the translation of timing protocols.

Fig 1. Time flexibility means that any in/out combination is possible.

Net.Time Ꚍ represents the state of the art in timing, designed to provide the most accurate and secure synchronization networks for infrastructures used in telecom applications. Net.Time Ꚍ is fault-tolerant, has a built-in GNSS receiver, Rubidium oscillator, redundant power supply, and accepts a wide variety of time references that can be used as primary or backup signals, providing compatibility between timing signals for distribution via protocol translation in all directions.

    5G Telecom

    5G operators require accurate phase and time alignment at the backhaul of the wireless in order to increase the density of terminals reducing cells size. Timing is also necessary for reusing the frequencies, to control the hand-over, logging the events and many more new services that are boosting the mobile business.

    Fig 4. New 5G networks are very demanding on frequency and phase requirement.

    New wireless deployments have stronger requirements at synchronization plane in order to reduce the size of the cells reusing more often available frequencies and, very important, wireless terminals have to share up/downstream channels to improve the efficiency by using phase information.

    Finance Institutions

    Financial services rely on powerful transport layer capable to provide high speed, availability, security and reliability. At the timing side, NTP and GNSS has been la widely used to synchronize nodes, transactions, and to log time-stamped events in a chronological sequence. Nevertheless today are in the migration pace to PTP that will improve the quality and functionalities of this service.

    Fig 6. Financial institutions are committed to register operations with time-stamps.

    Data Centers

    Data Centers are large scale deployments of server infrastructure where all the data and software reside physically. In order to achieve functions servers are connected by networks and synchronized to companies that want to host and run their data/applications.
