Net.Time Ω flexible time server

Net.Time Ω (Omega) represents the state-of-the-art in timing as it has been designed to deploy the most precise and secure timing for industrial applications such as Data Centers, Air Traffic Control or the Power Grid. This clock is tolerant to power, network and sync failures and can be equipped with different output modules to satisfy the needs and facilitate the integration of any type of signals making it ideal in heterogeneous applications.

Accurate and reliable synchronization is an essential resource to keep the stability and safety in 5G as well as in other relevant sectors of the industry including the Power Grid, Finance, Broadcast, IoT, Automation and the Air / Rail / Road Traffic Control. Timing is so crucial that small perturbations may induce a power black-out, phone call breaks, chaos in airports or cause millions in losses in the stock market. GNSS clocks may satisfy all of these timing needs; however, stand-alone solutions are not reliable as per documented reports demonstrate that interference degrade GPS performance, while cyber-attacks, jamming and spoofing are real threats. Net.Time Ω contains the latest achievements for timing distribution providing any type of signals with the format, level of accuracy and robustness required by each particular application.

Wireless WAN

Wireless operators require accurate phase and time alignment at the back-haul 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.

Air Traffic Control

Time is a key resource in Navigation Systems to ensure the proper functioning. Inherited signals such as IRIG-B, NTP and TDM are still in use but progressively are being replaced by PTP time-stamping systems to provide a unique, accurate and consistent synchronization based on Net.Time equipped with atomic oscillators disciplined by GNSS and distributed throughout the territory, air traffic control centers and airports.

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.

Smart grid

Automation requires extremely precise time accuracy –and stability as well– for tasks such as peak-hour billing, virtual power generators, or outage management. It is also necessary for the automatic protection of high voltage lines that are permanently supervised, when a substations detects an event, it is timestamped and transmitted to ensure correct operation.
