PTP/IEEE-1588 Grandmaster Introduced by EndRun Technologies

Santa Rosa, CA, September 14, 2009 - EndRun Technologies, a manufacturer of time and frequency equipment, today announced the availability of the worlds first CDMA-Synchronized IEEE-1588 Grandmaster Clock.  PTP is the Precision Time Protocol which operates on Local Area Networks (LANs).  It delivers greater network client synchronization accuracy than the most-popular network timing protocol: NTP.  The IEEE-1588 Grandmaster option is available in the GPS and CDMA-Synchronized Tempus LX and Unison Network Time Servers and in the GPS-Synchronized Meridian Precision TimeBase.

Adding PTP to the existing Time Server and TimeBase platforms allows the bridging of existing and Next Generation Networks (NGN).  High-performance network applications can take advantage of the newly-adopted IEEE-1588 standard in existing networks while newer networks, designed specifically with PTP in mind, can realize even higher performance levels.  This bridging allows the new standard to reside on network LANs with existing NTP clients and new PTP slaves.

"Adding the capability of PTP to the EndRun product line offers our customers high performance capability for their NGN applications."  says Michael Korreng, a Senior Design Engineer at EndRun Technologies.  "We are able to provide the time syncronization accuracy that was previously not available without the use of specialized hardware to synchronize 1 pulse-per-second (1PPS) or IRIG timecodes.  PTP eliminates the need for this type of specialized hardware.  Providing PTP as an option means we can supply the most cost-effective time synchronization solutions while allowing customers to configure their clocks for their specific needs."

The IEEE-1588 PTP option in the Tempus LX / Unison Network Time Servers and the Meridian TimeBase is available now.  Many other products and options are also available.  Call 1-877-749-3878 for more information or go to
