Details

Applications such as emergency communications centers require reliable timing to accurately synchronize networks, systems, and devices and to log events with legally traceable time. Spectracom’s NetClock Model 9483 is ideally suited for delivering worldwide, split-second timing to mission critical systems. The 9483 is the latest generation NetClock that has set the standard for the highest reliability synchronization.

Why Time Synchronization

Improve emergency response performance and record-keeping accuracy with time synchronization

Accurate time-of-day is important in communications centers and public safety answering points (PSAPs) for time stamping events. Without accurate time, different equipment and systems display and record different times. There is no certainty of start/end times for events and tasks and you are left vulnerable to potential litigation. Time synchronization with Legally Traceable Time® is critical for records accuracy and to support legal evidence in court.


  • Improves interoperability and overall operational quality
  • Prevents conflicting records and displays
  • Establishes time and event stamps as legally traceable
  • Protects your municipality against potentially costly litigation
  • Fully automated; eliminates manual errors

Saving Time. Saving Lives.

A prime focus of Public Safety is on the critical “response time” for life-threatening events such as heart-attacks – in essence suggesting that it is a matter of minutes that determine the fate of victims. Studies have shown when dispatch and other recording systems employ synchronized time, the improved records data has resulted in measurable life saving differences to their communities.
