Product Information

Microsemi's TimeSource ePRTC offers a solution that goes far beyond mitigating the loss of GNSS, enabling an operator to deploy an autonomous time source that is impervious to GNSS anomalies and outages.

Meeting the new ITU-T Recommendation G.8272.1

ITU's new Recommendation ITU-T G.8272.1 specifies more stringent output performance levels that will set the foundation for time, phase and frequency for many years to come. Also described in G.8272.1 is the requirement for an ePRTC to have a frequency input that can be fed with an autonomous primary reference clock. The new TimeSource ePRTC is designed and tested to meet this new industry standard.  TimeSource ePRTC can be purchased standalone or combined with Microsemi's 5071A Cesium frequency standard unit.

Network Deployment and Management

Synchronisation performance needs to be viewed with end-to-end network visibility where the ultimate "measurable outcome" that is most important is how well nodes throughout the network are aligned in phase, time and frequency. The TimeSource ePRTC is managed as an integrated node as part of Microsemi's TimePictra synchronisation management solution which provides end to end network management.
