Principles of synchronisation with NtpServer
When synchronising network time it is important, that the time source is secure and accurate. This is where ntpserver steps in and provides large networks with exact time
Don't forget to check out our leading NtpServer
Dedicated NTP GPS server receives its time signal from the GPS satellite system (each satellite contains an atomic clock). These signals offer excellent accuracy and furthermore are available everywhere on the planet where there is a clear view of the sky.Using three or more of these signals the gps can work out exactly what time it is.
NTP implements authentication by using an agreed set of keys between a TimeServer and NTP client, that are encoded in the timestamps. An NtpServer passes a timestamp to a client in one of a selection of encrypted keys and added to the message. If a timestamp is received by the client, the security key is encrypted and checked against the list of stored secure keys.
GPS NtpServers provide your network with accurate and verified time source. TimeServers ensure that all networked computers are synchronized automatically to the exact time through your network so everybody in your company can have access to the exact time.
What does NTP stand for? What is UTC? What is a TimeServer for NTP? Where is the source of TimeServer's time accuracy? How come I can synchronise my stations? Can I receive a radio time signal from anywhere? What about GPS signal from satellites? What about large networks?
NtpServer machines are like other computer servers in the sense they are usually located on a network. An NtpServer gathers timing information, usually from an external hardware source and then synchronises the network clock to that time.
