Option cards for time servers

Upgrade your time server to suit your needs

Being modular is what makes Bodet time servers so unique. Buying a time server is a long-term investment for your business, but even so it can be hard to predict what we'll need in 5 or 10 years. This is why we offer modular NTP time servers which by using option cards will evolve with your company.
