Time synchronization endpoint unit for Ethernet monitoring

The Napatech Time Synchronization Endpoint (NTTSE) allows IEEE1588 PTP time synchronization support to be retro-fitted to existing appliances.


Napatech's time synchronization endpoint unit supports the IEEE1588 PTP time synchronization protocol. The Napatech Time Synchronization Endpoint (NTTSE) can be installed as an IEEE1588 PTP slave and allows users to synchronize appliances using Napatech intelligent network adapters to an IEEE1588 PTP master.

The NTTSE converts the IEEE1588 PTP time synchronization information to the Napatech Time Synchronization Protocol (NT-TS) supported by all Napatech fully featured intelligent network adapters. This is important for applications where high precision time stamping of captured packets is required, such as latency monitoring for financial networks, telecom protocol analysis, or Ethernet network performance monitoring.

The NTTSE can be connected to an IEEE 1588-2008 PTP v2 time synchronization network using a standard Ethernet RJ45 cable. Three SMA female connectors are provided for connection to either three Napatech network adapters or three Napatech Time Synchronization Units (NTTSU) allowing support for up to 24 Napatech network adapters. Using Napatech daisy-chaining features on Napatech network adapters, this support can be extended to up to 192 Napatech network adapters based on one NTTSE.

Measuring 125 mm (4.92 in) by 36mm (1.42 in) by 80 mm (3.15 in) and weighing only 142 g (5 oz), the NTTSE is designed for quick and easy installation without the need for configuration. This allows the NTTSE to be quickly installed in any location on a permanent or temporary basis.
