Trimble Thunderbolt® PTP Grandmaster Clock
The Trimble Thunderbolt® PTP Grandmaster Clock is designed for networks requiring phase synchronization. The GM200 provides continuous availability of UTC traceable time for phase synchronization, a must for LTE-Advanced networks and services.
The Thunderbolt® PTP Grandmaster Clock is ideal for deployment in demanding industrial and telecommunication environments where it is important to keep the network synchronized and minimize downtime. Thanks to the Trimble PTP GM200 Grandmaster, higher availability and reliability of communication networks and infrastructures are ensured. This is essential for modern industrial and communication applications that require reliable and stable connectivity.
Network Time Protocol (NPT) and Precision Time Protocol (PTP) are both used for time synchronization in computer networks, but they differ in how they achieve synchronization accuracy and reliability.
NPT is an asynchronous protocol, meaning that it does not require precise timing of messages between devices on the network.
PTP is a synchronous protocol that tries to achieve higher accuracy in time synchronization.
The Thunderbolt PTP GM200 employs industry-leading Trimble GNSS solution & holdover technology.
