Synchronise every second
 

To work, your network infrastructure needs a single accurate time reference. All IT equipment has an embedded hardware or software clock which is used by the equipment to timestamp files, transactions, events, images, etc. This internal clock drifts like any ordinary watch. It becomes an issue when these devices are connected to a network and share common resources such as file systems.

Why is time synchronization important for your network infrastructure?

Why is time synchronization so important?

To work, your network infrastructure needs a single reliable and accurate time reference shared by servers or computers.

All IT equipment on your network has an embedded hardware or software clock which is used by the equipment to timestamp files, transactions, events, images, etc.

This internal clock drifts over time, like any ordinary watch. It becomes an issue when these devices are connected to a network and share common resources such as file systems. For example, logging messages from multiple systems becomes very difficult if they are not at the same time.

How to synchronize your infrastructure

The most secure way to synchronize the clocks of devices from your network is to use a time server.

The server synchronizes to a reference time and broadcasts it locally, securely, in your infrastructure using standard time protocols such as NTP (Network Time protocol) or PTP (Precision Time Protocol).

Equipped with a high-performance time base, the time server continues to deliver over the network an accurate and reliable time even in the event of temporary loss of the reference signal.

Our NTP servers enable you to capture a reference time via:

  • Satellite (Galileo, GPS, Glonass, Beido),
  • Radio (ALS162, DCF77),
