10/25/40 GbE High Performance PTP Grandmaster and NTP Server

VelaSync high speed time server with TimeKeeper inside is a network appliance designed for high frequency trading and other low-latency network applicaations.

The combination of FSMLab's TimeKeeper's highly optimized timing protocols and management functions, Spectracom's precision GPS timing technology, and the flexibility of commodity hardware offers exceptional performance and keeps pace with the needs of evolving network infrastructure.

The server offers options for multiple 1GbE (RJ-45), 10GbE (SFP+), 25GbE (SFP28) and 40GbE (QSFP) network ports for set-up, management, and simultaneous NTP and PTP server/grandmaster capability.

Flexible Configuration Provides Reliable, Secure Time

TimeKeeper's web-based user interface simplifies configuration of multiple time sources for resiliency against GPS attacks, spoofing or jamming, and equipment failures.

For example, the server can be easily setup to use a PTP source as a backup to the on-board GPS and use and NTP source as a cross check.

The servers can be setup to back up each other so that if one fails, the time service continues.

It includes dual redundant hot-swap power supplies and hard drives.

Network Sync Monitoring in a Single At-a-glance Instance

A unique aspect of TimeKeeper is the ability to auto-discover and monitor your network's synchronisation topology.

From a single-pane-of-glass, see where the server time is going, monitor downstream clients, and discover other available time sources.

The benefit is to verify redundancies and failover options, and identify single points of failure and "choke points".
