TimeKeeper® Grandmaster II

Secure, accurate <30ns, software-powered ultrahigh-speed 1/10/25Gbps GNSS NTP/PTP time server

A next generation, high-performance software-powered time server appliance for data center IT users.

Grandmaster II receives any time source (GNSS, CDMA, NTP, PTP, and others), serving time over multiple ultrahigh-speed, hardware-timestamped 1/10/25Gbps NTP/PTP ports at < 30ns precision. 

Powered by TimeKeeper Server software,  Grandmaster II provides 

  • Analytics
  • Real-time monitoring
  • Time sync management
  • Patented anti-jamming and anti-spoofing SkyMap capabilities
  • An enhanced near-Rb-performance OCXO or a Rb holdover oscillator, coupled with a multi-constellation GNSS receiver
  • Powerful client management that includes: configuration, monitoring, fault, logging, performance, clock sync chain topology visualization, alert, notification and security

SkyMap Technology

A patented GNSS analytics tool that monitors:

  • Real-time performance
  • Threats
  • Resilience of multi-GNSS time references

Accepts only trusted time sources for reliable, quality NTP/PTP time serving of the enterprise clock sync network.

Threats such as spoofed and jammed signals are detected automatically and mitigated via SkyMap while rejecting all compromised information.

This map shows the sky view and map locations of the affected GNSS antenna, with SkyMap’s provided user alerts and audit logs.

Enhanced Holdover Clock

A smart GNSS-disciplined clock sync technology and either a crystal or atomic rubidium oscillator enhances the holdover/timekeeping capability of the enterprise clock sync in case of compromised/lost GNSS time sources.

SecureTime

Track multiple secure time sources that are verified, validated, and cross-checked by:

  • SkyMap
  • TimeKeeper Server’s network TimeMonitor™
  • TimeMap™
  • TimeKeeper Client’s TrustedTime™ multi-source failover capability.

Client time sources are fault-tolerant for time-critical enterprise applications. SecureTime also provides transparent failover for redundant TK-Grandmaster II appliances.
