Keysight Technologies has partnered with FSMLabs to offer TimeKeeper, an enterprise-class clock synchronization, monitoring and time distribution platform that manages and monitors time-critical applications, devices and infrastructure.

"This partnership with Keysight Technologies further accelerates the rollout of TimeKeeper, FSMLabs' enterprise-class clock synchronization and time distribution platform," said Cort Dougan, CEO of FSMLabs. "Our expertise in time synchronization technologies, coupled with Keysight's superior sales and support worldwide, extends the reach of this unique technology, offering Keysight's customers access to advanced time synchronization capabilities for time-critical applications."

Available as software as a service (SaaS), TimeKeeper extends Keysight's portfolio to include time accuracy testing and latency analytics for the following solutions:

- Network Emulator – enables users to accurately test application performance due to network delays by emulating realistic network conditions in the lab at speeds from 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) to 100Gbps.

- TradeVision – network and market data analytics solution that allows users to monitor worldwide trading infrastructure latency in real-time and improve performance of trading applications.

- Metronome Timing System – scalable time distribution platform that offers time-synchronized testing of complex, distributed networks and time-sensitive applications.

- IxNetwork – network infrastructure performance test solution that enables users to test the scalability, accuracy, failure recovery and correction algorithms for IEEE 1588v2 PTP transparent and boundary clocks.

"The addition of TimeKeeper strengthens Keysight's market leadership in time synchronization and latency simulation in key markets such as financial services," said Areg Alimian, Senior Director of Product Management at Keysight Technologies. "TimeKeeper enables Keysight to offer customers a single time measurement tool to reduce regulatory risk where reporting, regulatory compliance and management of their timing infrastructure is critical to their success."
