For over three decades Spectracom© have developed time and frequency products to support communications equipment and networks with reliable timing and synchronization and high throughput test and measurement.

SecureSync™Time and Frequency Synchronization System Shown with secure GPS (SAASM) option

New from Spectracom

Precision Time Protocol

Offering the ability for microsecond clock synchronization over Ethernet.While network time protocol (NTP) has provided network time synchronization for years, PTP can provide much better accuracy by hardware time-stamping messages to measure the delay between the master and slave.

SecureSync™ combines Spectracom’s precision master clock technology and secure network-centric approach with a compact modular hardware design to bring you a powerful time & frequency reference system at the lowest cost of ownership. Military and commercial applications alike will benefit from its extreme reliability, security, and flexibility for synchronizing critical operations.

Choice of MRU or GB-GRAM Receiver

Spectracom’s SecureSync offers a choice of a 24-channel Miniature Ruggedized Unit (MRU) and a 12-channel Ground-Based GPS Receiver Application Module (GB-GRAM). When loaded with the crypto-keys, they receive the L1 and L2 GPS frequencies, decrypt the P(Y) code, and precisely synchronize time for the most mission-critical applications.
If the keys are not present, are deleted, or have expired, these units operate the same as commercial GPS receivers by receiving and synchronizing to the C/A L1 signal (also known as standard positioning service [SPS] instead of PPS).

EC20S Epsilon GPS Clock
Digital Broadcast

The key feature of new digital broadcast technology is the use of a multi-carrier system Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (COFDM) to overcome adjacent channel interferences and reflections of same signal. This process allows reliable operation of SFN networks since all transmitters use the same frequencies. All transmitters in a SFN need to be synchronized so that their emitted signals are frequency identical and bit identical. SFN operation requires Spectracom equipment to ensure synchronization using a universal time and frequency reference.
