Ethernet Time Synchronization

ethernet time synchronization [NTS-6002-GPS-MSF & NTS-8000-GPS-MSF]

Galleon Systems uses ethernet time synchronization to produce accurate time. The NTP time servers receive accurate time from both a GPS and radio source, ensuring that the time sent to your computers and clocks is reliable and exact.

Accurate and reliable time is essential for a wide range of businesses and applications, including offices, banks, and schools.

Contact Galleon Systems for more information on NTP time servers.

What is ethernet time synchronization?

NTP time servers can receive accurate time from a GPS (satellite) and MSF (radio) source. This makes them reliable, as they receive accurate time from more than one source.


To receive accurate time, place your radio antenna either inside or outside and your GPS antenna outside. Your GPS antenna can then pick up the time signal from 12 satellites, while your radio antenna receives time from the nearest radio tower.

An additional extension kit can be provided, which enables you to have a distance of 1000m between the antennas and server. This means you can place the antenna in the most convenient location.

The NTP time server connects to your internal network via ethernet so that it can send the most reliable and accurate time possible to your clocks and computers.

This makes NTP time servers ideal for:

  • Offices
  • Banks
  • Hospitals
  • Transport hubs
  • Factories
  • Schools
  • Warehouses

The ethernet time synchronization tools available

Galleon Systems has worked with major companies to ensure they receive accurate time, including Vodafone and Ford.

There are two models of NTP time server on offer:

  • NTS-6002 – Uses a Linux operating system and supplies two networks
  • NTS-8000 – Uses a Windows operating system and supplies six networks

Both are available with a six-year warranty and lifetime customer support.
