Domain Time II is a comprehensive software solution that simplifies time synchronization across the network. Versatile time clients keep the network hierarchy synchronized to a GPS referenced network time server. Easy to use management tools simplify and automate many tasks related to keeping these clients up-to-date. Monitoring functions track time client sync across the network and notify you of any problems.
Domain Time II has been designed to conform to your existing network infrastructure and to scale easily across installations of any size or complexity. In addition, Domain Time II has unmatched accuracy, manageability, security, and verifiability features that are essential in any environment with mission-critical systems.
Domain Time II''s superior management tools enable complete control of your entire network time system from a single workstation thereby saving you a tremendous amount of time and effort. You can install, update, configure, monitor, troubleshoot, and track licensing of Domain Time II enterprise-wide.
Domain Time II in conjunction with a Microsemi network time server provides more features to ensure accurate delivery of time than any other network time product, including high-accuracy time protocols, time-source averaging, clock training, slewing, target seeking, and an efficient time cascade update hierarchy, among others. Choose between NTP, IEEE 1588/PTP, and/or the accurate Domain Time II protocol to synchronize your network.
Providing the reliability you demand, Domain Time II software servers automatically take over for each other when one becomes unavailable and clients automatically find alternate time servers if there''s a failure.
Domain Time II provides built-in protection against malicious or inadvertent tampering with the time on your network.
Domain Time II incorporates and tracks multiple types of data that verify exactly who synchronized from whom, when, and what were the actual adjustments were. This information can be collected remotely by the Management Tools to provide unimpeachable audit records of time synchronization across your enterprise.
Domain Time II supports NTP, IEEE 1588-2008/PTP (Default Profile) and Domain Time II protocols. Flexibility in client configuration allows for mixed protocol networks to achieve the best synchronization and management performance to meet your synchronization objectives.
IT enterprises need a secure, verifiable audit trail and Audit Server software provides a secure, verifiable audit trail of the time synchronization of an IT network. Designed to work in conjunction with the Microsemi Domain Time II time synchronization components, Audit Server automatically provides the clear, indisputable records needed to easily resolve any contested timestamp issue that may arise.
The records collected by Audit Server include complete information to allow auditors to determine precisely when a machine was last synchronized, with what time source, as well as its variance from the reference time source.
All Domain Time II Server and Client services are individually identified using a unique serial number that is assigned when the Domain Time II software is installed.
A Domain Time II Server connects securely to a trusted network time source such as a Microsemi dedicated GPS referenced network time server, and then distributes that time accurately and verifiably to every time-aware machine on the network using the Domain Time II time distribution system.
Domain Time II Servers and Clients services keep detailed internal statistics on their operation which is regularly queried by Audit Server. Statistics are regularly retrieved from clients and servers using the Domain Time II protocol, which allows for efficient transfer of the information to the Audit Server, with a very small amount of traffic. This means that the audit process is very low-overhead and has minimal impact on the network.
The Audit Server automatically contacts Domain Time II Servers and Clients (and any specified NTP servers) to collect their audit data on a schedule you specify. This information is compiled into compact record files that include all relevant information about each monitored system.
