New: The syn1588® NIC Box

Today Oregano Systems announced the new syn1588®NIC Box; another member of the syn1588® product family. The syn1588® NIC Box further eases the process of setting up high accuracy clock synchroniation systems. A ready-to-use clock synchronization solution without any install operation; just plug-in the device into your network.


The syn1588® NIC Box is a highly versatile, high performance PTP node capable of delivering a variety of precise timing signals. Aside from a standard 1 pulse per second, two arbitrary frequencies as well as an IRIG-B signal can be generated. It is designed to receive or transmit timing information over an Ethernet network using the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) defined in IEEE 1588-2008. The device is based on a compact 1U 19” rackmount unit housing up to two syn1588® PCIe NIC for precise timing information.


Due to its support for all common PTP profiles and features, the syn1588® NIC Box can be used for any application requiring precise timing information. No matter if the device is used as a PTP slave generating timing signals or as a PTP master distributing time information, it always fulfills even the highest requirements.
