SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Conemtech launched a new product generation—the instantPTP line. This is a first for the synchronization industry. Customers now are able to obtain high accuracy synchronization via the IEEE 1588–2008 standard by just adding a single component to a new or existing design.
Conemtech finished the testing of their new product line at the annual ISPCS plug-fest event in San Francisco, USA. The results have verified the interconnectivity and standards compliance of Conemtech's new IEEE 1588 synchronization products. For the first time, Conemtech's instant PTP technology allows users to buy a single component and implement IEEE 1588 synchronization without extensive development costs or design-in times. instant PTP can be applied to new systems or retrofitted to existing designs, and does not require extensive knowledge of IEEE 1588 protocols.
"We have put all our effort in making the product work from the start—to maximize the users experience and simplify the implementation of PTP", says Ola Andersson, Conemtech CEO. "And, this is true both from the user's perspective of being able to deploy standardized, maintainable technology, as well as the programmer's view of be able to get into the bits and pieces of the technology to tune products to a specific environment." Besides the IEEE 1588-2008 default profile, Conemtech supports the ITU defined telecom profiles and the power profiles for unprecedented and complete application coverage.
The Conemtech products are well-known for its advanced user interface and the integration with a low or no effort. Now this has been given an extra layer of functionality to enable an implementation without the need to write new software. The instantPTP products now connect and adapt to different line conditions, entirely without the need for software integration in its host system or extensive field tests to establish the best set of parameters.
The new instant PTP products are primarily targeted as slave clocks in the packet network. New application methods are opened with the instant PTP technology. The new feature to connect as a "bump on the wire" using two Ethernet channels is key to this approach. It is very easy to insert the Conemtech P50 board-level product, or a one square inch M50 module, into the signal path and benefit from having distributed GPS-like accuracy in an embedded environment. These instant PTP system components terminate the synchronization protocol communication without interfering with the host data payload.
To secure the synchronization process long term Conemtech has also added two new features. The instantPTP products are IPv6 capable from the start for synchronization, and to future-proof your IEEE 1588 investment there is an SSH server to offer secure remote access and maintenance.
Instant PTP software and hardware work to create a synchronization environment ready for field-tests as soon as you connect the components. Unlike other independent software or hardware offerings in the market, Instant PTP drastically shortens your product's time-to-market and ensures standards compliance in several industries without compromising your control or your budget.
InstantPTP will be introduced in new and existing compatible products in the fourth quarter of this year.
Conemtech is a leading provider of application specific standard products for packet based synchronization. The company's products are based on a proprietary, highly efficient microprocessor chip. Further, the products are standards compliant and made for very efficient network communications and easy integration in customer equipment. The Conemtech developed IEEE 1588 synchronization technology of high accuracy time and frequency servers and slaves for the mobile networks of large operators. The present applications and customer base are telecom and power grid device manufacturers around the world which use the products as either master or slave clocks. The products enable customers to save space, energy and cost for distributed intelligence.
