FSMLabs and Spectracom today announced a new partnership to address the most complex synchronization challenges for time-sensitive network operations.
As the first step, Spectracom has announced a 10 gigabit-per-second high-accuracy network clock that integrates FSMLabs software with its GPS timing technology and high speed network interfaces. This combination sets a new standard for network performance and dependability in critical enterprise network applications.
The collaboration between Spectracom and FSMLabs addresses the requirements of demanding data center operations that depend on speed, security and availability in parallel with the delivery of exceptional performance relative to low latency and high packet speeds which are key differentiators in trading and financial services infrastructure. The result is a seamless integration of FSMLab's industry leading, high-performance timing software, TimeKeepertm, and Spectracom's state of the art timing engine into an enterprise-class, scalable platform for local and distributed networks.
Lisa Withers, Spectracom President and CEO said, "We believe the combination of Spectracom and FSMLabs core competencies will provide our customers with network appliances that ensure secure and ready access, manageability and uncompromising integrity of precise time and synchronization in their network. By delivering features that include support of PTP and NTP protocols, enhanced manageability and monitoring, network sync monitoring, high-accuracy time, advanced fault-tolerance and 10 GbE connectivity, our customers will have the tools and visibility they need to focus on their core business."
"Spectracom's industry leading timing capability, hardware integration and worldwide support help us bring end-to-end solutions to organizations that need to tame big data challenges and improve the integrity of their data," said Victor Yodaiken, CEO of FSMLabs. "Traders need technology that gives them time accuracy and manageability, and this partnership with Spectracom delivers that solution to financial institutions, allowing them to more confidently rely oon the network data that powers trading."
FSMLabs TimeKeeper and Spectracom time servers are designed with security and fault tolerance in mind, delivering high data integrity and allowing firms to detect abnormal activity such as GPS spoof attacks, jamming attacks and equipment failures that can often go unnoticed. Additional information about the partnership will be available at the Trading Show Chicago, a forum for automated trading, exchange technology and big data.
