Time Server Adds 40GbE Network Interfaces

Spectracom’s VelaSync™, now available with 40 GbE network interfaces, offers the highest performance synchronization for the most time-sensitive networks.

Matching network speeds between timing and data on a single low-latency high-throughput network enhances synchronization accuracy and eliminates queuing delays and hidden time errors caused by slower connections. The availability of a network timing appliance with 40 GbE interfaces will benefit any deployment of critical network infrastructure at state-of-the-art data rates.

When the VelaSync time server platform was introduced in 2014, it was, and still is, the only commercial time server to meet the needs of financial trading networks’ move to 10 gigabit-per-second networking. As the result of an innovative combination of its precision GPS timing technology, software from its partner, FSMLabs, and modular server hardware, Spectracom continues to set the standard for advanced time synchronization on high speed networks.

Spectracom Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Rohit Braggs, commented, “We are pleased to support critical enterprise networks with a highly flexible and scalable synchronization solution that takes advantage of the latest technology. Our modular platform approach offers precision timing on 1/10/40 GbE networks today with the ability to add other interfaces as they are rolled out.”

Victor Yodaiken, CEO of FSMLabs, added, “new regulations and stress on data integrity make time precision ever more critical for financial services, enterprise, and cloud computing — our partnership with Spectracom allows our customers to stay ahead of the curve.”
