We're using (as a stratum 1 NTP clock) the Datum Inc. TymServe 2100 box, a
nice 1U rack-mount unit which receives GPS and outputs NTP and 1PPS
(satisfying 2 above) and also has a 10MHz output (satisfying 1 above).  A
rubidium oscillator is an option on this box.  See http://www/datum.com/ for
more details.
