Qulsar’s QNgine-S is a leading-edge IEEE 1588-2008 PTP based time recovery solution targeted at end-node applications such as LTE and 5G small cells which require high precision timing. The Precision Time Protocol (PTP) described in the IEEE 1588 standard was originally conceived as an application layer protocol to deliver better accuracy than other synchronization solutions, such as the well–known Network Time Protocol (NTP).

The QNgine-S implements leading edge PTP performance in cost-sensitive solutions by running directly on existing system-on-a-chip (SoC) implementations without requiring custom hardware. Support is currently available for the Intel (Mindspeed) Transcede T2k and T3k SOCs, which form the heart of many small cell solutions.

The QNgine-S enables small cell developers to achieve PTP performance far superior to “free” PTP software solutions, without imposing any hardware upgrade requirements for the core SoC or reference platform.
