The VCL-2424 provides a wide range of GNSS (GPS/GLONASS) referenced frequency and time sources (outputs) that include 2.048MHz, 10MHz, 1PPS as well as an NMEA, 1588v2 PTP and an NTPv4 time reference. Features such as maintaining a distinctly separate IP address for system management and control, password based access, SSH as well as MD5 authentication ensures operational reliability and security. Additional features include remote login and remote firmware upgrade (file transfer) capabilities. VCL-2424 includes complete SNMP monitoring as well as support for enterprise directory services for user authentication, internal and external logging and monitoring of alarm and error messages through Syslog ensures a high level of system manageability. Other features includes support concurrent IPv4/IPv6 support for future network upgradation.
VCL-2424 is powered by a high-performance microprocessor and a highly precise GNSS (GPS/GLONASS) based time receiver that provides a better than 30 nanosecond accuracy.
VCL-2424 is designed to provide NTP and PTP time and frequency synchronization, with separate individual ports for each type of service.
The VCL-2424 meets and complies with “Power Contact and Lightening Protection” as per Telcordia GR-1089-CORE and EN61000-4-5 Level 4 specifications making it suitable for the equipment to be installed in harsh industrial environments.
Monitoring and Management:
The configuration of the system can be managed by Graphical User Management Interface. Alternatively, a text based and menu driven setup utility can be started from the shell prompt after logging into the unit via Telnet or SSH. An optional Graphical User Network Management Interface (NMS) allows multiple systems to be monitored and configured from single or multiple management locations.
