Deliver Carrier-Class Performance for Carrier-Class Applications (SSU)

Your networks must meet demanding new NTP requirements. ‘Best effort’ utility is no longer adequate. Plug our NTP blades into your SSU 2000 Synchronization Supply Unit for superior, carrier-class stability and protection.

Product Information

Product Information

Microsemi’s NTP blades enable your networks to meet today’s mission-critical requirements for high Quality of Service content delivery and NGN PacketTime™ applications. IPTV and other NGN applications are highly dependent on carrier class NTP.

Carrier-class NTP for high QoS of advanced services

Carriers have long relied on Synchronization Supply Units (SSUs) to meet all physical layer synchronization requirements with five nines availability. Our high performance blades enable the SSU 2000 platform to deliver carrier-class NTP, providing the performance, scale, availability and security that assure high QoS delivery of advanced services such as IPTV. Time coordination of massive amounts of digital content in the head end serving locations is reliant on accurate and secure NTP timestamps. 

Flexible scalabilty

NTP cards can be installed as single servers or redundant pairs in any available master or expansion shelf output slot. NTP capacity scales up at a rate of up to 1000 fully authenticated transactions per second for each added card. Front-access NTP traffic ports utilize Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) modules for flexibility to support 100 BaseT electrical or 1000Base-X optical or electrical interfaces. 

Added security

Achieve added security and flexibility since NTP server cards can support both independent public and private network domains. Consolidate all configuration and management through SSU 2000 system management ports to maintain security and isolation from NTP traffic ports. 

Stratum 1

Establish NTP Stratum level 1 UTC time traceability through the GPS input module. NTP server cards can also operate at NTP Stratum level 2 with UTC time traceability back to a NTP Stratum 1 module located in another office.
