Hi Akin,

The Octoclock-G would be suitable for this purpose, and yes, it does
contain a GPSDO (OCXO). https://kb.ettus.com/GPSDO#GPSDO_.28OCXO.29

The Octoclock-G does not contain an antenna, you must provide one to the
GPS Antenna input (SMA).

The X3xx series do not support IEEE 1588, however, the N3xx series USRPs do
support White Rabbit, which is an extension of the IEEE-1588-2008 standard.
More info can be found here on it
