Oscilloquartz’s high performance TCC-NTP (Time Code Card Network Time Protocol) module together with the OSA 5548C SSU delivers a complete NTP solution to any IP-based network. The TCC-NTP Card is a NTP Stratum 1 server which provides a reliable and easy synchronization of Ethernet TCP/IP network. The TCC-NTP card can be installed by just plugging it into in any empty Output card (OUC) group slot of the OSA 5548C SSU/TSG. Up to 10 TCC-NTP cards can be installed in the OSA 5548C SSU-200, making the OSA 5548C as the most redundant and protected NTP server in the market.
Its own base time and algorithm guarantee a high level of accuracy when the GPS card is tracked. Furthermore, the TCC-NTP takes full advantage of the exceptionally high availability and superior holdover performance of the OSA 5548C SSU.
In case of GPS loss, the TCC-NTP references its time base to the best source available: one of the 8 OSA 5548C’s sync inputs or the internal Rubidium or OCXO sources. In these conditions, the time needed to accumulate a time error of 1ms in holdover is more than 4 months when locked on its internal Rubidium and more than 10 days when locked on its internal OCXO.
Each TCC-NTP card provides a high security level: 64 bits RSA™ MD5 encryption, leap time protection, high stability time base and an independent Ethernet port that guarantee security and reliability of its NTP timing service.
The TCC-NTP is easily and safely manageable via the Oscilloquartz’ SyncViewTMPlus Management Software.
