Protempis GNSS/GPS Antennas (formerly Trimble GPS Antennas)

An Antenna is an electro-magnetic signal transmitter and receiver device which transmits signal to the air and receives signal from the air respectively. A GPS Antenna works specifically at GPS frequencies.

Protempis GPS Antennas are a perfect solution for precise timing and network synchronization needs, providing an extremely cost-effective and independent (within the firewall) timing source for any application, such as fault detection systems and synchronization of wireless networks.

Protempis Precision Timing Devices

Protempis is the leading provider of high-precision positioning solutions that maximize productivity and enhance profitability using centimeter-level GNSS technology. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and System Integrators can integrate these technologies to achieve product differentiation and gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Protempis NTP Time Servers

The Protempis NTP Time Servers are designed for demanding applications that require high-accuracy NTP time stamping. It supports synchronization of thousands of workstations, routers, switches and other network elements for logging and security forensics. The Protempis NTP Time servers are optimized to deliver extremely stable and accurate time of day (TOD) synchronization for a variety of time-sensitive applications, such as telecom networks, data centers, factory automation, and SCADA systems.

Protempis PTP Grandmaster Clocks

Protempis Grandmaster Clocks (previously Trimble Grandmaster Clocks) employ industry-leading Protempis GNSS performance, and world class holdover technology. The Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is a protocol used to synchronize clocks throughout a computer network. Protempis PTP Grandmaster Clocks are designed for the telecom market, for use at the edge of wireless networks requiring phase synchronization.

Protempis Disciplined Clocks (formerly Trimble Disciplined Clocks)

The Protempis GPS Disciplined Clocks combines a 12-channel GPS receiver, control circuitry, and a high-quality oscillator on a single board, providing increased integrity and reliability at a lower size and cost. Protempis Disciplined Clock’s level of integration makes it a perfect solution for precise timing applications in the wireless industry. Among its uses are synchronizing the E911 positioning infrastructure and maximizing bandwidth for a wireless local loop. The architecture is comparable to systems currently used to maintain CDMA holdover performance requirements in telecommunications systems.

Protempis Starter Kits

Protempis provides developers kits for several products that have APIs and programmability. The kits help speed product development for system integrators, OEMs and value added resellers.

Protempis GPS & Timing

Protempis designs custom synchronization solutions for companies around the world. Their unsurpassed record of reliability positions them as value leaders in the industry.

Protempis - Industry Experience
Protempis Reliability

Proven Reliability

Tens of thousands of Protempis GPS/GNSS disciplined clocks have established an outstanding record of accuracy and reliability, with mean time between failures (MTBF) of well over 1,000,000 hours. Why risk your reputation with products that haven’t stood this test of time?

Performance & Price

Price is important. Performance is critical. Protempis timing products consistently offer the best true price to true performance ratio in the industry. Their FreqOut™ (Frequency Output) architecture produces an atomic-clock performance for less—no more expensive rubidium clocks. Their timing products come with a complete bundle of features, which means that our customers pay a one-time cost and avoid paying any additional/hidden cost for adding new features.
