time provider 5000 and Time provider expansion
Carrier grade, packet-based timing and synchronization
The TimeProvider 5000 is a carrier grade IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Grandmaster with additional capabilities, including NTP and SyncE, that provide a flexible technology suite to match the synchronization needs of evolving networks.
The TimeProvider ® 5000 is an IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Grandmaster that enables communications service providers to build a stable, robust and reliable network infrastructure. An NTP server option and expansion shelf capabilities that include Synchronous Ethernet and an advanced PTP profile make this timing and synchronization system capable of supporting network needs today and in the future. A carrier-grade design with flexible capabilities is vital to enable circuit to packet network migration for high-speed data services and wireless backhaul, and to deliver 3G, 4G/LTE and LTE-Advanced wireless, as well as broadband multimedia to the network edge and customer premise.
TimeProvider Expansion Features
High Performance for Carrier-Grade Application
TimeProvider 5000 combines the functionality of a highly accurate IEEE 1588 Grandmaster clock with E1/T1 and 10 MHz/1 pps I/O ports in a high-performance, yet compact 1RU footprint. It adheres to the latest IEEE 1588-2008 (PTPv2) standard including the provisioning of telecom profile extensions for telecommunications based applications, and meets applicable performance requirements of the ITU-T G.8272 standard for a Primary Reference Time Clock (PRTC).
Fully Redundant Equipment and High Network Availability
With redundant Input/Output Clock (IOC) cards, TimeProvider 5000 provides protection far superior to “network redundancy” models that must re-acquire synchronization from a different Grandmaster located elsewhere in the network. Modular construction also yields better serviceability and a lower mean-time-to-restore than sealed, self-contained units.
High Client Capacity and High Message Rate
Improved QoS and Packet-Based Network Performance
Optional Quartz and Rubidium Oscillators
NTP Server Option
TimeProvider Expansion Capabilities
TimeProvider Expansion 10
TimeProvider Expansion 30
Even as networks transition to packet, the need to synchronize elements using the frequency and interfaces of the traditional TDM network remains. The TimeProvider Expansion 30 shelf is equipped with twelve E1/2.048MHz and twelve 1 PPS/TOD output ports, allowing carriers to provide synchronization for all of their equipment from a single TimeProvider stack.
