GPS network time server front view

Receiving GPS Time for Network Synchronisation

To synchronise a computer network or other technology systems to GPS time, you need a GPS network time server. GPS network time servers are simple to install, easy to use, and can maintain millisecond accuracy for all connected technologies. Used in stock exchanges, air traffic control, and banking systems, GPS time servers provide an efficient and cost-effective solution for maintaining network synchronicity.

6 digital wall clock for hospitals

Digital Wall Clocks for Synchronised Time around Hospitals

Because health care is based on multi-disciplinary teams, treatments, meetings, operations and procedures often require strict coordination to prevent wasting time and provide an efficient service. Making sure everybody has access to a synchronised and accurate time is part of this process, which is what makes precise and reliable digital wall clocks for hospitals so important.

6 digit LED PoE clock

Using PoE Clocks (Power over Ethernet)

Power over Ethernet is ideal for powering and controlling wall clocks and other time devices. The accuracy of a network’s NTP time server can be used to maintain an accurate time on the PoE clock. This means the clock will never drift and will always be accurate to the second - ideal for ensuring punctuality in organisations that runs to a tight time schedule. No matter how many clocks are running on the PoE system, they will all maintain the exact same time, eliminating time inconsistencies in large organisations.

A GPS time server

Installing a GPS Time Server for Network Synchronisation

As the name suggests, GPS time servers receive their time from the GPS system (Global Positioning System). The GPS signal is basically just a time code sent down from the satellites’ onboard atomic clocks. This time signal is what satellite navigation systems use to triangulate positioning, but because it is generated by atomic clocks is extremely accurate and precise.

Time reference for PC synchronisation

Time reference for PC synchronisation

UTC is an atomic clock time reference used to ensure all PCs and computer networks, no matter where they are in the world, are all running the same time. NTP time servers are used to receive a times source and distribute it around a network but there are various choices for locating a source of UTC for time reference for synchronisation.

Four digit ethernet NTP digital wall clock from Galleon

Using an ethernet NTP digital wall clock

Ethernet NTP digital wall clocks plug into an NTP time server using an Ethernet cable. This means that the time signal is sent from the NTP time server directly to the Ethernet NTP digital wall clock, maintaining its accuracy. Ethernet clocks are precise, reliable and synchronised. This article explains how to use an Ethernet clock in your business.

NTP GPS time server from Galleon

Why your Network Needs an NTP GPS Time Server

NTP GPS time servers are becoming an essential tool for business networks. With the ability to synchronise hundreds of computer, switches and routers, an NTP GPS time server can keep a network accurate to within a few milliseconds of UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
