ASR 1006 as Stratum 1 Clock?

Hello!

Is there an attachment for a GPS module for the ASR-1006 that will allow me to use it as a stratum 1 clock? I've found some info on the ASK9K, but nothing for the 1006. Any help or links would be appreciated!

Thanks!

There is not enough "market"

There is not enough "market" for Cisco to R&D a stratum 1 module.

It is better to get a GPS-based stratum 1 appliance elsewhere.  Otherwise, one can use a pair of Linux servers to act as a stratum 2 appliance.  Better yet, Linux boxes can be hosted on a Raspberry Pi or Beagle Bone units.  Either one can be powered up using the USB ports.  We have a few in our DC and they're being powered using the USB ports of the HP servers.  Works very well!

The beauty of the Raspberry Pi setup are: 

1.  Components are inexpensive (main component cost <US$100 plus extra for the NTP board); and

2.  Open source
