ExpressBox 1T - Thunderbolt PCIe Expansion Chassis


With twice the speed of USB 3.0 and 12x faster than Firewire, the

ExpressBox 1T is the fastest and easiest solution for connecting a PCIe card using the power of Thunderbolt Technology.  Enhance the power of your Thunderbolt equipped computer with the Magma ExpressBox 1T and harness lightning-fast throughput over a single cable via Thunderbolt technology. ExpressBox 1T enables serious professionals to use specialty PCIe cards with any Thunderbolt-equipped computer, so that you can achieve high performance wherever your work takes you. Add a PCIe card to ExpressBox 1T and your computer turns into a powerful workstation capable of HD video capture and editing, media transcoding, audio processing, data processing, or high-speed storage and networks.




*Supports (1) half-length / full-height PCI Express card (max length 7.75")
*Thunderbolt features speeds up to 10 Gbps bi-directional
*Daisy-chain up to six Thunderbolt devices
*User controlled fan speed and noise
*External 65W power supply

TimeProvider® 2300 and 2700 - Edge Grandmaster Clocks

Edge Master Clocks are IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) solutions designed for deployment in current networks by locating a grandmaster at the edge or by overlaying the network with advanced boundary clocks at planned locations. In 3G and LTE-FDD networks, Edge Master Clocks can be deployed to eliminate backhaul network timing issues caused by third-party networks, multiple transport technologies, and high packet delay variation. In LTE-TDD and LTE-Advanced networks, they support the stringent phase and time requirements without retrofitting the current backhaul network. One solution does not fit every network. The new TimeProvider 2300 and TimeProvider 2700 Edge Master Clocks enable a variety of synchronization distribution architectures to economically support a variety of network scenarios.



*Mitigates impact of backhaul noise, packet delay variation and asymmetry

*Designed for the anticipated ITU-T G.8275.2 PTP profile for phase synchronization

*Support for 8 to 64 PTP clients

*Advanced performance with multi-sync capability: PTP, SyncE, E1/T1

*Extends robust holdover performance to small cells
