The Symmetricom® SSU 2000 is an intelligent, fully manageable Synchronization Supply Unit or Timing Signal Generator. It is used by communications network operators to generate and distribute superior synchronization signals for their networks. In addition to traditional TDM network timing capabilities, the SSU 2000 supports packet networks with signals including IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and carrier-class NTP for advanced network services. The SSU 2000 platform is also ready to support the seamless introduction of SyncE-capable elements into your network. Designed in a NEBS-compliant package, it utilizes the latest hardware and software integration technologies.
Industry Standards Compliance
The SSU 2000 is designed to meet the latest and evolving industry standards, including ANSI, Telcordia, ITU-T, ETSI,
IEEE 1588 and CE/AS.
The SSU 2000 architecture is designed to integrate intelligent, functional modules into a flexible, fully redundant system to seamlessly satisfy current and future requirements.
The system provides total output capacity of up to 1280 unprotected ports or 640 protected ports. Up to 160 outputs are available in the main unit, and up to 1120 additional outputs are available through four expansion shelves with a capacity of 280 outputs per shelf. Output modules may be configured in redundant pairs providing twenty 1:1 fully protected outputs per pair. Expansion shelves are designed with redundant connections for reliable uptime.
Auto-Reconfiguration: If a module is removed and a like module installed in the same slot, the new module will be automatically configured to the same settings as the previous module.
Input signals are passed through in case of multiple internal failures, including clock failures.
Each SSU module has an integrated CPU with software for superior reliability, flexibility and functionality. Modules can be removed or inserted while the unit is operating without any degradation of the output signals. Each intelligent module supports the management of critical, major and minor alarms. Powerful management can be performed to and within each module through the communication module.

Been working with PICS Telecom for years. Wonderful company and Bill McAuliffe is a great rep to work with!
I think Bill McAuliffe is the best. Always helpful and has gotten me out of a lot of jams.
I work with Bill McAuliffe and a lot of times we are buying switches but often we have off the wall or weird equipment that we have to find and Bill often times goes above and beyond. He may not always be able to get us the best price, but we definitely come back for the Service and effort.
I have worked with PICS Telecom for years and it has been a wonderful experience. Every one is very supportive and provides excellent customer service. Bill McAuliffe always goes above and beyond to address our needs and locate (or in some cases, build) difficult-to-find equipment.
Worked with Bill McAuliffe finding some much needed, hard to find parts. He hooked me up and was a pleasure to deal with. Will definitely buy from again!
Found PICS Telecom during a online search for secondary market equipment. Had a conversation with Bill and he helped me find the equipment I was looking for and gave me a great price! I have completed 2 other transactions with him since then. This is a wonderful company to work with, Thanks Bill for all of your help, you have been awesome to work with and I look forward to working with you on future equipment needs.
We have worked with Bill several times on several projects and Bill has never let us down. He is always quick to respond to our questions and can acquire specific gear we are looking for within a very short period of time.
Bill is always very helpful on getting the equipment we need. He is fast in response time and always competitive pricing. If there is any issues with the equipment after receiving it he has replaced it with no questions. In short a good person / company to deal with.
I appreciate the quick response and shipping. I try to check with you any chance I get when I need to purchase Ciena gear. You have great pricing and I have not received a defective unit yet so I know that I will get a quality part when I purchase thru you.
Thank you and it’s been a pleasure working with you and your team! I look forward to doing more business with you in the future!
I have been pretty fortunate lately in regards to equipment failures and replacements, but PICS has always been (thanks to the quality of service I’ve received from you) at the top of my list when I do have a need.
You and your company did an excellent job with the Nortel C1500 core repair and purchase. We did test both units upon receiving them, and they tested as advertised…If ever the occasion comes up with a neighboring telco in need of your services I will not hesitate to recommend you and your company.
PICS TELECOM has always been there to help! When I reach out to Bill, he is usually able to get me what I need or help point me in the right direction. They have done an outstanding job on repairs of some equipment and provided me with options to buy other gear. Bill even helped me go to bat against UPS when they DESTROYED a $10,000.00 Fujitsu card in shipment. He certainly did not have to intervene and help with that claim but he was 100% there to help. Great guy and a great company!!
Bill McAuliffe and team have always been wonderful to work with. Bill is helpful and diligent and has helped me find necessary equipment many times when I had a short time window or needed something unique. Really appreciate the support over the past 15+ years.
Bill and his group are always very responsive. Inventory is always up to date. Any warranty issue has been dealt with quickly and easily.
We had a bit of unexpected excess capital to spend and were nearing year end.
On short notice Bill and the PICS Telecom team delivered on a couple new servers we had planned for the following year– receiving it before the end of the year warehouse inventory shutdown.
Great communication, responsiveness, and get it done attitude equaled a big win for us. We were able to start configuration and installation of the new servers starting right after the new year and got that all in and ready well ahead of schedule.
Bill at PICS always responds fast and tries to get us what we need, when we need it.
I really like working with PICS as they have helped us out in a bind, many times. Their products are great and if I ever have problems, PICS takes care of the issue right away. Very impressed with this company.
Bill McAuliffe from PICS Telecom has been an absolute pleasure to work with. His responsiveness to DFN’s requests has been exceptional, ensuring that we receive timely solutions. Bill stands behind the products he sells, giving us complete confidence in our purchases.
I have worked with Bill and his team for over 10 years as a manager at several different telecom companies. Everywhere I go, I make sure that PICs Telecom and Bill, specifically, is added to our preferred vendor list. They are responsive, timely, and professional. If they do not have the units in stock, they track them down. If we have issues with defective equipment, they resolve the issue quickly and without drama. I will continue to use PICs Telecom as a preferred vendor as long as I am active in the industry. Great company to work with.
