New High-Performance Time Server for Secure Networks Introduced by EndRun Technologies

Santa Rosa, CA, April 16, 2013 - EndRun Technologies, a precision time and frequency company, today announced the availability of its third generation time server - the new Sonoma D12 Time Server for Network Time Protocol (NTP) and Precision Time Protocol (PTP/IEEE-1588) applications.  Available using either GPS or CDMA signals as a timing reference, the Sonoma is a high-performance time server for the most demanding and secure network installations.

While many organizations synchronize their network time using a public time server on the Internet, security requirements and other cyber threats dictate the increasing need for a time server behind the firewall.  The Sonoma D12 meets and exceeds this need.  "Since the Sonoma is typically a set-it-and-forget-it appliance, all extraneous protocols/services have been eliminated in order to minimize exposure to security holes.", says Michael Korreng, Systems Engineer at EndRun Technologies.  "The Sonoma can be installed with the peace of mind knowing that security and network time synchronization are taken care of."

Starting with an ultra-high bandwidth network processor supporting two standard gigabit ports with optional PTP hardware timestamping, the Sonoma supports millions of NTP clients with ease.  The CDMA receiver available only from EndRun makes installation easy with an indoor antenna, while the GPS receiver provides a time synchronization accuracy of 30 nanoseconds.  Sonoma D12 features include:

  • Stratum 1 network time server.
  • Multiple-port gigabit network interface.
  • Available using an indoor antenna with CDMA-synchronization.
  • Available using a GPS 12-channel receiver for nanosecond accuracy.
  • Network security hardened.
  • Daily and weekly plot files for the CPU, NTP and Oscillator statistics.
  • HTTPS status monitoring.
  • High performance network interface to handle millions of NTP clients.
  • Optional IEEE-1588-2008 hardware timestamping for nanosecond timing.

The Sonoma D12 is available now.  Other products and options are also available.  Call 1-877-749-3878 for more information or go to
