Why You Need An NTP Time Server
Time is critical for transactions across computer networks. Many events on the network need accurate time to initiate and control processes, and complete transactions such as authentication. Accurate time for time stamps and log files is also very important for billing systems, network diagnostics, digital forensics, high-reliability databases and process analysis.
Yet clocks in electronic devices are not designed for accuracy. A typical clock can drift more than one hour in a year. The solution is to employ network time synchronization.
Time synchronization is an important criterion for efficient network operations. A network time synchronization implementation is simple and relies on a network time server as a network master clock. The characteristics determine the security, reliability, and accuracy as well as the ease of manageability of the network time application.
Accurate, Secure Timing
GNSS / GPS Time Servers
The most secure timing available, the SecureSync is built on a platform of configurable capability components, either by hardware, software or system integration, to offer precisely what you need at the lowest cost of ownership.
Safran fully supports the implementation of PTP (IEEE-1588v2) for applications that require microsecond accuracy on networks and devices.
