TimeKeeper® Server SoftwareSoftware GrandMaster and boundary clock
TimeKeeper Server Software transforms any server computer into a timing appliance. Server software can use networks or devices like GPS receivers as time sources and can serve time over any protocol. Server software also archives records and performs visualization and time data analysis for whole networks.
Browser-based administrationAccess and control from one interface
A single web interface provides immediate clarity about the accuracy of each time source, network delay overhead, and clock behavior over time. The same view will also show client behavior for each client’s timing sources including clients of other sources.
Truly flexible timing solutionThe Swiss army knife of timing
TimeKeeper Server software replaces costly hardware components, simplifies or even eliminates network changes needed to improve time quality, and facilitates building and managing resilient, fault tolerant time distribution networks.
PTP versus NTPUniversal connector
TimeKeeper Server Software can bring in time from GPS clocks, Pulse-Per-Second lines, IRIG or other specialized connectors and over Ethernet and Infiniband networks using either IEEE 1588 Precision Timing Protocol (PTP) or Network Time Protocol (NTP) or any combination. The Server can output both PTP and NTP on multiple network adaptors. Any network device hardware timing assist is used, transparently. One common configuration uses PTP from one source as the primary source and NTP from another source as a backup. It is easy to configure the server to serve PTP on multple domains or NTP from multiple IPs, or to use PTP Telecom Profile or Hybrid mode. Time can come in via NTP and leave via multiple PTP domains - whatever suits the use.
