Spectracom 9483 NetClock Time Server

Spectracom NetClock 9483Model 9483 NENA-compliant GPS Master Clock

The NetClock 9483 continues Spectracom's legacy of highly accurate and reliable GPS master clock technology that is easy-to-install and manage backed by NetClock's industry-leading 5-year warranty. While maintaining strict compliance to the National Emergency Number Association's (NENA) Master Clock Standard #04-002, the new NetClock has added features to support Next-Generation 911 initiatives, and has been tested against NENA’s Security for Next Generation 9-1-1 Standard #075-001.

Spectracom Enterprise-Class SecureSyncOptions Modules Extend Synchronization Capability

A unique capability of SecureSync is to add hardware options at initial deployment or later as your network grows. An option adds three (3) 10/100/1000 interfaces to deliver NTP to multiple isolated LAN segments at 1 GigE. Two other options add PTPv2 functionality to the unit. One option is for a configurable master/slave PTP operation over a 10/100 network interface. The other is for PTP grandmaster functionality at 1 GigE. Up to six (6) of either types of ports can be added. Each PTP port is configured and operates independently to improve PTP performance since its processor is independent of all others in the system.

Along with precision 10 MHz and 1PPS outputs, all other physical synchronization signals can be generated as options so you can leverage your networking timing deployment to specifi c devices. Many of these signals can be used as references for redundancy or for other applications such as syncing across security boundaries via optical fiber.

Reliability and Scalability Supports All Timing Network Architectures

Several features support reliability and redundancy. Multi-GNSS operation is available as an option to add GLONASS signals to the GPS reference to improve signal availability. SecureSync can also be deployed without the expense of a GPS receiver to operate as a stratum-2 server. Units among the same stratum can be set as NTP peers. Any other timing source can also be a reference such as T1/E1, time code, 1PPS, etc. You set the priority from all the available references. An internal oscillator maintains timing accuracy if all references are lost. Choose from TCXO, 2 types of OCXO and Rubidium.

A Network-centric Approach

SecureSync is a security-hardened network appliance designed to meet rigorous network security standards and best practices. It ensures tamper-proof management and extensive logging. Robust network protocols are used to allow for easy but secure configuration. Features can be enabled or disabled based on your network policies. Installation is aided by DHCP (IPv4), AUTOCONF (IPv6) or SLAAC, and a front-panel keypad and display, and a command-line interface. A modern web browser user interface supports the configuration unit and an optional monitor of synchronization quality throughout the network.

Improve emergency response performance and record-keeping accuracy with time synchronization

Accurate time-of-day is important in communications centers and public safety answering points (PSAPs) for time stamping events. Without accurate time, different equipment and systems display and record different times. There is no certainty of start/end times for events and tasks and you are left vulnerable to potential litigation. Time synchronization with Legally Traceable Time® is critical for records accuracy and to support legal evidence in court.

  • Improves interoperability and overall operational quality
  • Prevents conflicting records and displays
  • Establishes time and event stamps as legally traceable
  • Protects your municipality against potentially costly litigation
  • Fully automated; eliminates manual errors

Saving Time. Saving Lives.

A prime focus of Public Safety is on the critical “response time” for life-threatening events such as heart-attacks – in essence suggesting that it is a matter of minutes that determine the fate of victims. Studies have shown when dispatch and other recording systems employ synchronized time, the improved records data has resulted in measurable life saving differences to their communities.
