Global Positioning System (GPS)
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information in all weather conditions. The system provides critical capabilities to military, civil and commercial users around the world.
A GPS receiver will receive these signals and use geometric calculations to estimate the location of the receiver relative to those satellites. This GPS signal can not only be used to calculate a position, but it can also be used as a very accurate time base. This makes the GPS system the ideal way for accurate time synchronization of the network.
Why Time Synchronization?
Most organizations today rely on networks of computers, all of which rely on clocks. So what happens when the clocks in these computers don’t agree with each other – or with the correct time? What happens to the processes running in these networks?
A time bomb is ticking away in the heart of most IT infrastructures – the same infrastructure on which organizations depend to produce products, buy from suppliers, sell it to customers, prepare financial reports, and communicate both internally and externally, in short to do all the things modern organizations do. When the clocks in a network fall out of sync – with each other or with the correct time – bad things start to happen.
- Processes fail.
- Data is lost.
- Security is compromised.
- Legal exposure increases.
- And organizations lose credibility with customers and business partners.
Because most people mistakenly assume that computer clocks are inherently accurate. They also don’t fully appreciate the consequences making computers interdependent when the clocks in these computers don’t agree. Finally, they don’t realize that solutions to the network synchronization issues are inexpensive and easy to implement. These solutions are called network time servers.
GPS MASTER CLOCK SYSTEMS:
NTP OR THE NETWORK TIME SERVER:
The Network Time Protocol, or NTP, offers a way to synchronize time on all the various server, desktop and appliance elements on a network in order to avoid a great number of operational issues.
- Stratum 1 Operation Via GPS Satellites
- Stratum 2 Operation via NTP Servers
- Independent Time References: GPS, Time codes; 1PPS, 10 MHz
- Multiple NTP ports for easy network configuration and adaptation
- Synchronize thousands of client, server and workstation clocks
- Enhanced network and security features
SELECTING THE RIGHT GPS RECIEVER
With a wide range of options to select from the GPS Network Time Server is your answer to bringing perfect timing across your network securely, reliably and easily. Let us help you to choose the relevant product according to your requirement.
GPS Based Synchronized Clock Displays
Network Time Displays
Network Time Displays are maintenance free clocks that keep accurate time by synchronizing their time – over the network – to a GPS based network time server.
Time Displays use the existing Ethernet network infrastructure and the standard network time protocol (NTP) to keep the time correct and all international time zones can be set on Display by adding offset to the UTC through Communication Software.
Each display is configurable to synchronize with a network time server and will accommodate a second time server as an alternate. These time servers need only be accessible over the LAN/WAN and support NTP.
