New Net.Time Ω

Net.Time Ω is a modular 4-port GbE clock (TCXO/OCXO/Rb) that meets most industry requirements for WAN or LAN timing. Supports PTP (Telecom & Power), NTP, PRP, ToD, PPS, IRIG-G-B, DCF77, SyncE, MHz, T1/E1, Meinberg or ASCII.

Net.Time Ω

Net.Time Ω (Omega) is a 4 Ports PTP/NTP/SyncE clock that allows multiple configurations to meet the timing requirements of any industry, including utilities, data centres, railways and air traffic control. The result is always a reliable and fault-tolerant solution to reference loss, network outages and power failures. At the same time, Net.Time Ω simplifies migration to PTP without abandoning investments in NTP, IRIG-B or BITS, thus facilitating the integration, interaction/translation of all types of signals, profiles or protocols.

Fig 1. Net.Time Ω universal, flexible, fault tolerant and powerful up to million NTP transactions / sec and 1024 unicast PTP clients.

Universal Protocol / Profile translator

Net.Time is very flexible as it accepts multiple clock references to discipline the internal circuitry. GNSS is the default and most obvious reference, but signals such as PTP, NTP, SyncE, ToD, IRIG-B, even MHz, E1/T1 can also be used as backup time references, in case the first reference fails or in case of GNSS spoofing. Everything continues as before, without loss of phase or time of the output signals. It can also translate the PTP profiles, e.g. be disciplined by the PTP telecom profile while offering PTP synchronisation with the power profile.

Fig 2. Time flexibility means that any in/out combination is possible.
