Automate, simplify, secure! vGMC technology provides seamless PTP distribution

Go beyond basic PTP distribution with the first multi-tenancy distribution system, fully customisable at runtime.

vGMC enables TaaS providers to seamlessly connect new clients, large organisations to segregate their timing infrastructure. It's time to start running your timing systems the way you want to without downside or detriment to performance.

  • bulletpoint

    Distribution templates enable single command set up. Different environments have different timing requirements, whether that is running Unicast, multicast, or even just to comply with a particular PTP profile in a subset of devices. PTP templates make this a click away.

  • bulletpoint

    Smart vLAN and VRF provisioning provides a best in class service when setting up and maintaining client PTP feeds. Separate your PTP distribution with secure environments. Some installations have default values such as PTP domain, now you can use the same PTP domain without any data bleed across PTP feeds. Each configuration is wholly separate to the next and data bleed is impossible.

  • bulletpoint

    vGMC can operate on any linux server or as standard with any of the G0kK-1 series devices. vGMC technology can operate inline with your current GMC as your reliable distribution system ensuring your grandmaster is always performing optimally and doesn't complicate the distribution configuration. Whether with a G0kK-1 or server vGMC enables a flexible set up.

Commoditising PTP time feed distribution

vGMC technology enables any PTP feed provider to quickly and effectively provision clients, without the lead time or operational challenges experienced to date. vGMC enables PTP feed provision and amendments at run time increasing supportability for multiple clients serviced from 1 device. Through templated configurations you can instantly deploy new clients with just one command.

The G0kK-1 Series is specifically designed to operate best in class vGMC functionality, not only can it increases PTP sessions to over 40,000 per device but also intuitively sets up a multi-tenancy environment secure from IP and PTP domain cross over. This separation ensures every client connected gets a seamless service and also ensures you have access to management information for upholding SLA's.

The vGMC is a game changer for any TaaS provider or large enterprise, it scales incredibly, provides real-time onboarding, as well as takes full advantage of our PTP+Squared system to enable a full timing grid.
