If you do want something all-in-one with PoE, the LeoNTP is available 
again for pre-order. It is a lot more expensive at £420 (plus GST?) but it 
is also rated to 100,000 clients per second. In 2016 got one free in 
exchange for hosting it in the NTP Pool, and it handled peaks of 45,000 
pps on the hour or half-hour without a sweat (other parts of my network 
melted though). The shop also has GPS antennas and extension cables.
