Using the IEEE 1588-2008 protocol standard (also known as Precision Time Protocol (PTP), devices on an Ethernet network are synchronised with IEEE 1588v2 allowing network operators to achieve precise frequency and phase at the edge of the network. Chronos combines over 30 years’ sync and timing experience with Microsemi’s comprehensive range of IEEE 1588 sync solutions to meet the stringent timing and synchronisation requirements of 4G/5G networks.

 

Integrated GNSS Master: IGM-1100i

Microsemi’s integrated GNSS Grandmaster (IGM-1100i) deliveres precise GNSS-based time indoors where there is no GPS reception. IGM fully integrates a 1588 PTP Grandmaster with a GNSS receiver and antenna in a small, fully contained package designed for easy installation on an interior wall or ceiling.

IEEE 1588 Mini Grandmaster: IGM-1100x

Microsemi’s small form factor IEEE 1588 IGM Grandmaster, IGM-1100x, with integrated GNSS receiver and external antenna, delivers precise time in scenarios where a GNSS antenna is already deployed, or where it would be cost-effective to deploy, such as a small one-story building, rack, hut or a cabinet.

Integrated GNSS Master: IGM-1100o

Microsemi's ruggedized integrated grandmaster  (IGM-1100o) can be used in environments such as outdoor cabinets and huts where temperature range constraints and environmental ruggedness are key requirements. For instance serving eNodeBs from the very edge of the mobile network with very few hops to the node.
