Timing & Synchronization Solutions

Empowered is Canada's Primary Reference for Time, Frequency & Phase Synchronization, for all markets and requirements

Most organizations need at least one network time server to provide Stratum 1 GPS-referenced NTP that is secure, accurate, reliable and easy to use. Protect your organization's network, log files, and operational integrity and eliminate the risk of taking time from the Internet. Trust Empowered's expertise to help you find the right solution for trusted source of official time for your network and applications.

High quality synchronization is essential for LTE, LTE Advanced, and Voice over LTE, to deliver optimal performance. IEEE 1588 – also known as Precision Time Protocol, or PTP – is the standard for extending precise frequency, time & phase synchronization to the wireless network edge.


Precise, secure and reliable timing and synchronization is essential for Wireline and Wireless Service Providers. Modular, fully redundant timing distribution systems are required in central offices, along with scalable solutions for smaller offices, and intelligent management systems, to support a wide range of legacy, IP and Next Generation Network applications and services.

Microsecond timing is an operational necessity for monitoring and control of the new Smart Grid, SCADA control systems, Protection and Control, Phasor measurement units (PMUs), IED’s for sampled values, revenue meters and peripheral substation equipment all require precise timing. \

Empowered has built strong relationships with key Energy and Utilities companies across Canada over more than a decade, helping our clients design, deliver and implement precise timing solutions for many different applications.

Empowered supports all solutions from Microsemi's Time and Frequency Division, from specialized solutions for the cable industry, satellite operators, telemetry and other specialized applications, to components like oscillators and chip-scale atomic clocks, to cesium primary reference and and hydrogen masers.
