Product Overview

Trimble’s Thunderbolt® NTP Time Server is a high quality NTP Time Server (TS) with an integrated Trimble GNSS receiver. The Thunderbolt® NTP is designed and optimized for the deployment in wireless service provider networks to meet the stringent time & phase requirements of Telecom/IT networks, SCADA and industrial automation application.
It provides NTP time and PPS outputs. Thunderbolt® NTP uses GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) signals from GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS and Beidou as the primary time source for synchronization.
Thunderbolt® NTP can furthermore use its built-in, disciplined OCXO (oven controlled crystal oscillator) as autonomous time base for providing several hours of accurate holdover in case that GNSS signals are not available.
Hardware redundancy can be achieved by using two Thunderbolt® NTP Time Servers.
Thunderbolt® NTP comes in a rack-mountable enclosure; two Thunderbolt® NTP units fit side-by-side in a 1U height 19” rack.

NTP Network Time Server for high reliability applications

The Trimble Thunderbolt® NTP TS100 Time Server is designed for demanding applications that require high accuracy NTP time stamping. The TS100 supports synchronization of thousands of workstations, routers, switches and other network elements for logging and security forensics. VOIP IPBX systems also require very accurate NTP timestamps to ensure CDR events are correctly registered and reported.
The Thunderbolt NTP TS100 supports multiple constellations GNSS, which enables tracking of GPS, GLONASS, and Beidou satellites enhancing redundancy and satellite availability.
The Thunderbolt NTP TS100 Time Server is certified NEBS standards for reliability.

Industrial applications
Automation systems and industrial environments that use SCADA or other network monitoring, measurement and control systems require high precision NTP reference to ensure reliable and accurate operations.
The NTP TS100 is optimized to deliver extremely stable and accurate time of day (TOD) synchronization for a variety of time sensitive applications such as datacenters, SCADA systems and PMU synchronization.

Ideal for demanding environments
The Thunderbolt NTP TS100 leverages Trimble’s decades of experience in GNSS systems with millions of timing devices integrated into telecommunications, digital broadcasting, computer networks and other industrial applications.
The NTP TS100 Time Server offers extended operating temperature ranges to ensure suitability for use in demanding environments.
The NTP TS100 supports a large number of clients making it suitable for medium and large scale deployment. The low cost per client of the TS100 helps reduce the total cost of deployment while maintaining superior reliability.

BENEFITS

  • Extended environmental capabilities allow for installation in difficult industrial environments where other NTP servers cannot be deployed
  • Dual power input provides power redundancy
  • Superior holdover performance via Trimble proprietary algorithm gives extra time error budget for network design and dimensioning.
  • Low cost helps reduce total cost of NTP deployment
  • Small form factor allows for easy installation
  • Side by side capabilities facilitate redundancy implementation
