High Performance, Enhanced Security Network Time ServerThe new SyncServer S600 GPS / GNSS, Stratum 1 network time server with security-hardened NTP Reflector™ technology improves the security, accuracy and the reliability of the time services on the network for IT network administrators working to provide network time services in hardened network operations. The S600 network time server is purpose built to deliver exact hardware based Network Time Protocol (NTP) timestamps. The unparalleled accuracy and security is rounded out with outstanding ease-of-use features for reliable network time services ready to meet the needs of the user network and business operations today, and in the future.Secure, precision network synchronization and accurate time stamping across distributed systems are critical to a wide range of enterprise IT markets for regulatory compliance, data analysis, data logging, auditing and many other applications. In high frequency trading markets, for example, recent financial regulations like ESMA's MiFID II directive mandate more stringent than ever level timing accuracy and time stamp granularity. As financial markets and market participants are highly interconnected, these regulations have a ripple effect on market participants worldwide. Never has it been more important to choose a network timekeeping architecture, such as Microsemi's SyncServer S600, that will be accurate, reliable, and compliant to the new MiFID regulations and forthcoming SEC requirements. High Security and Capacity The four standard GbE ports combined easily handle more than 10,000 NTP requests per second using hardware time stamping and compensation. All traffic to the S600 CPU is bandwidth limited for protection against denial-of-service (DOS) attacks. For significantly more robust and secure NTP operations, enable the security-hardened NTP Reflector with 100% hardware-based NTP packet processing capable of 360,000 NTP requests per second. IEEE 1588 PTP Grandmaster Applications demanding precise time accuracy can benefit from the IEEE 1588 Precise Time Protocol (PTP). The S600 PTP output license enables PTP grandmaster operations leveraging the built-in hardware timestamping on each LAN port of the S600.Unprecedented NTP Accuracy The Stratum 1 level S600 derives nanosecond accurate time directly from the atomic clocks aboard the GNSS satellites. By using an integrated, 72-channel GNSS receiver, every visible satellite can be tracked and used to maintain accurate and reliable time. Even in urban canyon environments where direct satellite visibility can be limited, manually inputting the position can be sufficient to acquire accurate time even from a single intermittent satellite.Multi-GNSS Constellation Support for Enhanced Reliability Timing integrity, satellite signal continuity, and timing reliability can be improved with the Multi-GNSS constellation license that adds support for GLONASS, BeiDou, and SBAS constellations in addition to the standard GPS constellation. With more satellites in view, timing performance can be improved in challenging environments, such as urban canyons. All SyncServer S600's ship with GNSS hardware ready to be enabled with a software license.
