The proliferation of high-speed data, broadband multimedia and circuit-to-packet convergence is rapidly driving the need for high quality synchronization outside the network core into metro and access. However, the synchronization economics and functional requirements of access nodes differ significantly from traditional core nodes. A reduced number of outputs, smaller footprint and lower cost points, while maintaining the PRS accuracy and SSU/BITS performance of a core office synchronization system, are still critical requirements for a small office synchronization solution. The Microsemi TimeProvider® 1000 and TimeProvider 1100 are ideally suited to meet this need.
The TimeProvider’s innovative architecture combines the tasks of tracking incoming timing references, qualifying the signals, filtering and distributing precise synchronization onto a single universal Input, Output and Clock card (IOC). Available in rubidium and quartz versions, a second IOC card can be added to provide full input, clock redundancy and output protection. Local and remote provisioning and management of the TimeProvider 1000 and TimeProvider 1100 is performed through the Information Management Card (IMC).
