Domain Time II is a comprehensive software solution from Microchip that simplifies time synchronisation across the network. Versatile, high-accuracy time clients keep the network hierarchy synchronised to a GNSS referenced network time server. Easy to use management tools simplify and automate many tasks related to keeping these clients up to date and monitoring functions track time client sync across the network notifying you of any problems.
Designed to conform to your existing network infrastructure and to scale easily across installations of any size or complexity, Domain Time II additionally has unmatched accuracy, manageability, security, and verifiability features that are essential in any environment with mission-critical systems.
Superior management tools enable Domain Time II to completely control your entire network time system from a single workstation thereby saving you time and effort. You can install, update, configure, monitor, troubleshoot, and track licensing of Domain Time II enterprise wide.
Used in conjunction with a Microchip network time server, Domain Time II provides more features to ensure accurate delivery of time than any other network time product, including high-accuracy time protocols, time-source averaging, clock training, slewing, target seeking, and an efficient time cascade update hierarchy.
Providing the reliability demanded by today’s networks, Domain Time II software servers automatically take over for each other when one becomes unavailable and clients automatically find alternate time servers if there is a failure.
Domain Time II provides built-in protection against malicious or inadvertent tampering with the time on your network.
Domain Time II incorporates and tracks multiple types of data that verify exactly who synchronised from whom, when, and what were the actual adjustments were. This information can be collected remotely by the Management Tools to provide unimpeachable audit records of time synchronisation across your enterprise.
Domain Time II supports NTP, IEEE 1588-2008/PTP (Default Profile) and Domain Time II protocols to meet your synchronisation requirements. Flexibility in client configuration allows for mixed protocol networks to achieve the best synchronisation and management performance to meet your sync objectives.

Time Client Software: High-accuracy time client for Windows: fully configurable, fully automatic, or entirely manual. Can completely replace the Windows Time Service.
Time Management Tools: Domain Time II Manager is an integrated suite of Windows applications and services that allow you to remotely install, configure, control, and monitor your Domain Time II components across the network. The program is designed to be the central control centre for your time system, and it has many powerful features to simplify all aspects of configuring and using Domain Time II
Time Server Software: Domain Time II Server is a Windows system service that is configured to obtain time from a GPS referenced network time server such as a Microchip SyncServer, and then distribute that time reliably and securely to other client machines that run the Domain Time II Client. In particular, the Server can be configured to be a master or slave server and function automatically in the Windows Active Directory environment to cascade time throughout both large and small networks. When installed on Primary Domain Controllers (PDC) and Back-up Domain Controllers (BDC) it can automatically maintain the correct time hierarchy as the roles of the PDC and BDC change.
The full Domain Time II interactive documentation set is available via Microchip’s website for you to use. This is a very educational and complete resource to better understand how the software works and how to configure the time hierarchy in your network. Included are many useful example network diagrams of specific configurations. View documentation
