  • Network Time Protocol (NTP) and Bodet Equipment

Network Time Protocol (NTP) is widely used in LANs (Local Area Network) and WANs (Wide Area Network) to synchronize computer clocks to standard time. NTP sets up a reference server within the network to deliver accurate time to all NTP clients requesting it.

Bodet provides full NTP system solutions including NTP time servers and NTP analogue and digital clock displays.

Netsilon NTP servers can source highly accurate time references including GPS (Global Positioning System), IRIG Time Code, NTP and PTP (Precision Time Protocol). Our NTP servers provide accurate time to computers on a network as well as to our NTP clocks. Located in your network, behind your firewall, a Netsilon NTP server offers additional security, control, accuracy, and availability compared to using free NTP servers provided on the internet.


Bodet NTP clocks contain built-in NTP clients to provide accurate and versatile time displays, and take advantage of the low installation costs of using either existing or dedicated Cat5/Cat6 ethernet network cables.

Bodet NTP clocks allow for bi-directional communication over the network, including remote status monitoring and configuration of all network and display parameters via the supplied BodetDetect Software. Once configured, NTP clocks operate autonomously, including automatic adjustments for daylight saving for any time zone in the world. There is no need to change out batteries because Bodet NTP clocks use Power over Ethernet technology to run.
