Net Insight’s sync solution becomes fully PTP-standard compliant with synchronization module for 5G and other mission-critical networks

Stockholm, Sweden — Net Insight announces a deepened partnership in synchronization with Meinberg, a global leader in time synchronization. Net Insight has worked with Meinberg to enhance the company’s unique synchronization solution, Precision TimeNet, with a tighter integration of the standard IEEE1588v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) technology and full PTP interoperability and seamless failover from Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS).

The Precision TimeNet solution offers a GNSS-independent delivery of high accuracy timing across any IP vendor network, which can significantly reduce the cost and rollout times of 5G and other mission-critical networks.

As part of the cooperation, Net Insight has selected Meinberg’s leading PTP software stack to implement full PTP functionality in all its platforms. During last year, Meinberg also delivered a synchronization module to Net Insight’s Nimbra MSR 300 series providing full PTP IEEE1588v2 interoperability and GNSS integration for 5G networks. The new module is part of the Nimbra Time Node, an important component of the Precision TimeNet solution.

Net Insight and Meinberg have previously worked together to bring cutting-edge end-to-end time synchronization solutions to the market and now the cooperation is broadened. Net Insight has selected to license the PTP stack from Oregano Systems, owned by Meinberg, to deliver network synchronization for both media and 5G networks. Meinberg leverages Net Insight’s network synchronization capabilities to serve customers across the telecom, fintech, government, and power infrastructure industries. The expansion into a strategic technology partnership means that both companies will utilize their expertise in time synchronization to deploy solutions that remove the challenges of reliable precision timing over any IP networks.

“The shift to IP is accelerating, making precision timing key to the successful deployment of new applications,” said Heiko Gerstung, Managing Director of Meinberg. “Net Insight’s Precision TimeNet offers a unique solution on the market that we see a strong and growing need for, across multiple industries. We’re excited to be working with Net Insight, a leader in mission-critical IP transport, to drive innovation and enable our customers to benefit from GNSS-independent time synchronization.”

“Net Insight has been developing time transfer for nearly two decades, delivering industry-leading time accuracy and resilience over IP networks,” said Per Lindgren, CTO and co-founder at Net Insight. “When expanding our synchronization business into new markets, integrating with the IEEE 1588 PTP standard was key to enhancing our interoperability. Teaming up with Meinberg, a leader in time and frequency synchronization, was the obvious choice — we’re excited that our joint expertise in IP networking and time synchronization will enable us to reinvent precision timing for our customers.”
