GPS Master Clock: NetClock Public Safety Master Clock
Versatile, NENA-compliant GPS (Global Positioning System) Time Server
The latest generation of the NENA-compliant NetClock Master Clock / Time Server offers a modular design for greater versatility, multi-network port card for separate, isolated networks, and optional PTP master/slave card.
The Choice GPS Master Clock for Public Safety Timing
The Model 9483 NENA-compliant GPS master clock continues Spectracom’s legacy of bringing essential time synchronization to public safety answering points (PSAPs) and other emergency and command and control systems.
More than 4,500 PSAPs across North America trust a NetClock Time Server to validate 911 event records, improve response times and facilitate interoperability between networks, systems and inter-agency coordination with Legally Traceable Time®. The latest NetClock design is our most versatile with expansion card modules for increased capability demands, more built-in redundancy, and offering the highest levels of security on a network appliance.
The unit provides backward compatibility with legacy systems, while maintaining strict compliance to the National Emergency Number Association’s (NENA) Master Clock Standard #04-002, and support for Next-Generation 911 initiatives, including NENA’s i3 Solution and Security TID #075-001 standards.
NETCLOCK GPS MASTER CLOCK ADVANTAGES
SecureSync is the key enabler of a highly available time and frequency synchronization distribution architecture. It adapts to demanding infrastructure environments, with extended temperature support (-20°C to +65 °C). Time distribution to legacy systems can be achieved with a range of synchronization signals, while timing protocols (NTP, PTP) are available for synchronizing of recent systems through the networks. And, alternative signals including LEO PNT are available such as the STL option.
SecureSync offers a broad range of flexible configurations, including a variety of internal oscillators for holdover and phase noise, and onboard clocks that can be synchronized to many external references. The platform can be configured for specific applications, with the ability to extend the number of option cards on the platform (up to six cards can be accommodated per unit).

Terrebonne Parish Gets in Sync with NetClock®
Terrebonne Parish (Louisiana) relied on wall clocks to provide less-than accurate time. As a result, CAD reports were depicting fire apparatus arriving prior to the call being received. Police and deputies’ times were equally as skewed.
In Catawba County, Timing is Everything
The Catawba County (Newton, North Carolina) E911 Communications Center had a problem: The inability to synchronize its systems to determine what time an incident occurred.
Legally Traceable Time® in Action
The Martinsville-Henry County 911 Center, located in Henry County, Virginia, installed an Orolia NetClock® time server solution. During an investigation, there was some confusion as to the timeline of a homicide. The 911Center was able to testify with certainty about the times that its recorder showed that the 911 calls were placed.
Why Time Synchronization Is Critical for Improving Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs)
When 911 dispatch and other recording systems employ synchronized time solutions, the improved data records deliver measurable life-saving differences in their communities and provide the potential for reduced insurance rates. This white paper discusses key benefits to implementing a Legally Traceable Time® architecture.
What Time is it? It’s a Matter of Trust
Those in the business of measuring time are familiar with the saying, “If you have one clock, you know what time it is. If you have two, well…”. Time synchronization is the ability for all clocks to have the same time. But what time is it? If your time synchronization deployment uses time from the…
