Finance and IT
Secure, precision network synchronization and accurate time stamping across distributed systems are critical to a wide range of enterprise IT markets for regulatory compliance, data analysis, data logging, auditing and many other applications. In high-frequency trading markets, for example, recent financial regulations like ESMA's MiFID II directive mandate more stringent than ever level timing accuracy and timestamp granularity. As financial markets and market participants are highly interconnected, these regulations have a ripple effect on market participants worldwide.

Never has it been more important to choose a network timekeeping architecture, such as Microsemi's NTP & PTP sync & monitoring solutions, that will be accurate, reliable, and compliant with the new regulations.

As you read this, your network of workstations and servers, each with its own clock, are actively timestamping files, emails, transactions, and so on. At the same time, your server logs are recording every type of transaction in case the information is needed for audit or forensic analysis. At some point during the day, it is quite likely that automatic processes (such as archiving, directory synchronization, and cron jobs) will execute and alter files based on these timestamps. Fundamental to all this is the belief that the time is correct. But is it?

To answer that question, you must first consider:
• Is the time source accurate and precise?
• Is it secure? That is, is the time itself vulnerable or does it make the network vulnerable?
• Is timing easy to use and deploy across the network?

At Focus Telecom we can analyze your network architecture and your current & future requirements and design a timing deployment plan together with you which will include the most accurate and secure time source by Microsemi & protected by GPSdome, time deployment all the way to the edge of the network and full monitoring and management capabilities integrated with your existing monitoring and management systems. Furthermore, at Focus we offer testing and auditing services to verify compliance with the regulations based on Albedo Telecom’s testing equipment.

Indoor Universal IGM

Synchronizing indoor small cell operations typically requires a high accuracy timing receiver nearby and often a complicated GNSS antenna installation to support a relatively few number of small cells. 

Microsemi’s revolutionary integrated GNSS grandmaster (IGM) solves this problem of delivering precise GNSS-based time indoors where GPS signals usually cannot be received.

IGM for External GPS Antenna

In certain scenarios, there may be a pre-existing GNSS antenna in a location where the GNSS cabling would be short enough to be inexpensive and easily installed.

In such a situation, the most cost-effective solution is to deliver precise time and phase with a low cost IEEE 1588 PTP grandmaster connected to the external GPS antenna.
