Falcon-MTS

Core/Edge high capacity PTP Grandmaster, NTP server and BITS Clock, with multi source operation and Rubidium based holdover

 

The Falcon-MTS is designed for synchronization and distribution of frequency, phase and time over the packet-based networks for applications demanding highly accurate and stable reference signal.

This system can operate on multiple clock references for redundancy and high availability, based on both logical and physical sources, while distributing timing through these interfaces.

Having an integrated Ethernet switch in the system provides high capacity, processing flexibility and high level of security and robustness.
