White Rabbit Technology
Available in the UK from APC Time, SevenSolutions’ White Rabbit (WR) technology is some of the most innovative and cutting-edge in the marketplace today. WR is an extension of Ethernet that provides sub-nanosecond synchronisation of timing and data transfer over 1G Ethernet networks. Seven Solutions has built its reputation as accurate time transfer providers contributing to the development of the White Rabbit technology (WR) in close collaboration with CERN and other scientific institutions.
Capable of distributing time and frequency with sub-nanosecond accuracy the Seven Solutions range of switches and nodes are ideal for:
- Saving time budget on inter metro fibre links
- Jamming and spoofing protection
- Network visibility
- Data centre server synchronisation
- Cross validation of time references in telecom networks
- Synchronisation of power networks in smart grid applications
- Scientific facilities

White Rabbit Switches
WR technology distributes time and frequency within sub-nanosecond accuracy to thousands of nodes via standard optical fibre to distances of more than 80km. It provides deterministic delivery and a reliable communication using redundant network topology. WR solutions dynamically self-calibrate timing links and distribute global time references in a deterministic and dependable way.
Flexible Standalone Node – WR-ZEN TP
The WR-ZEN TP is a flexible standalone node that offers White Rabbit features for different applications, exploiting its redundant connections for a reliable product in timing applications.
It combines ultra stable clocks with low jitter and temperature compensated clock resources to enhance its synchronisation. By integrating different FMC boards, the WR-ZEN can provide accurate timing performance to your application.
Fundamental Standalone Node – WR-ZEN TP-FL
This fundamental standalone node easily distributes time and frequency to other equipment by implementing widely available timing protocols: PTP, NTP, 10MHz/PPS.
The WR-ZEN TP-FL combines ultra-stable clocks with low jitter and temperature compensated clock resources to enhance its synchronisation accuracy in a cost-effective 1U form factor.
Standalone Node – WR-ZEN TP 32BNC
The WR-ZEN TP-32BNC easily distributes time and frequency to other equipment by implementing standard timing protocols such as PTP, NTP, IRIG-B, etc.
The WR-ZEN TP-32BNC combines ultra-stable clocks with low jitter and temperature compensated clock resources to enhance its synchronisation accuracy. In addition, it includes a fanout module to synchronise multiple devices through standard 10 MHz and PPS.
Lite Embedded Node – WR LEN
The WR LEN (Lite Embedded Node) is the competitive WR solution capable of supporting daisy chain configurations. It provides a cost effective alternative to distribute PPS/10MHz signals or IRIG-B protocol to your equipment. The WR-LEN is also available in its OEM version in order to integrate accurate timing synchronisation into your product.
These packaged solutions are based on WR-LENs that offers synchronisation over daisy chain configurations, distribute accurate timing from one node to others, synchronises IRIG-B compliant devices or take advantage of the WR network. The following packages are available:
KIT LEN-F: It includes three LEN nodes and their interconnection elements.
KIT LEN-B: Includes two LENs (simple tests).
