* This version is NOT compatible with the Verizon eFemto products. See www.css-design.com for more information.

The TimeMachines GPS NTP+PTP Network Time Server represents a major step forward in capabilities at a breakthrough price point. It will supply accurate time for all computers and time keeping devices on the network. Supporting both Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and Network Time Protocol (NTP), a Stratum 1 time source can now be available on the local network with no need for an internet connection.  SNMP V2/V3 is supported on the device, authenticated NTP, Peer NTP lookup, and Manual time setting modes.  The TM2000A system uses an active GPS antenna to maintain the current time as broadcast by United States GPS satellites planet wide. In addition, a high stability OCXO reference clock is included that allows the unit to serve time if GPS lock is lost for periods of time. The unit is small and can be placed anywhere within the network layout. The built in high sensitivity GPS receiver is able to lock multiple satellites from within many buildings or from a window location, removing the requirement that outdoor antennas be installed in some applications. Outdoor antennas are available from TimeMachines including custom length cables and accessories.

  1. Rated 3 out of 5

    Robert Meany

    Does the job, but does not appear to have any SNMP or alerting capabilities which would be helpful for troubleshooting with our network monitoring solution.

    • Douglas Ehlers

      We appreciate the feedback. We will continue to evolve the product over time, and this type of feedback is very helpful.

  2. Douglas Ehlers

    The product has evolved quite a bit over its lifetime. The requirements for lock have increased since the early versions of the product software. The original versions required only a quick 2D lock, but as more stringent requirements for timing accuracy evolved, a 3D lock was required. This does require a solid GPS signal. We have many customers that operate these devices with an indoor antenna in a window with no issues (south facing is recommended), and know of no case where an outdoor antenna didn’t provide excellent signal to the device. The indoor antenna will initially take 1-3 hours for 3D lock, sometimes longer, where as an outdoor antenna with its stronger signal and broader view of the sky can be as fast as 5 minutes. Additional reviews can be found on Amazon.com for this product.

    Kelly Beale

    We have two of these devices. One of them works great but it is outside a co-location facility so we have a clear view of the sky.
    The on in the co-location facility we continue to struggle getting a signal. Placed an antenna on the roof and still cannot get it to work.

    Single Rack Mount for Time Servers


    Single Rack Mount for Time Servers


    The TimeMachines Single Rack Mount is a great way to complete a professional 19″ rack installation of the time servers. The mount is sized to fit either the TM1000A or the TM2000A servers that we offer. The metal blank is 1U tall (1.75 inches) and machined so that the existing faceplate of the time server sits flush with the front of the blank. Basic assembly requires 4 screws to attach the mount to your equipment rack, and 4 screws to attach the server to the rack mount. The mount, made of powder-coated steel, is designed and manufactured in the USA.

  • 2 Way GPS Splitter


    2 Way GPS Splitter


    The TimeMachines GPS 2 Way Splitter allows using one antenna with two GPS Time Servers such as the TM1000A or TM2000A. This passive device connects antenna amplifier power through one of the output ports to the antenna using the power provided by the time server. The second port is DC blocked. No changes in setup of the TimeMachines Time Servers are required to use this device. Compatible with other vendors GPS based time server products, see documentation for more information. Works great with the puck antennas provided with our time servers as well as our conical 40dB outdoor antenna. If there are multiple time servers co-located, this product can save running multiple antenna cables.
