Galleon network time server appliance

A network time server appliance receives accurate time from both a GPS and radio source, ensuring that the time is reliable and exact.

The NTP time server then sends that time to your computers or clocks, giving them accurate time. This makes NTP time servers essential for a wide range of businesses and applications that require accurate time for operations to run smoothly.

Contact Galleon Systems for more information on its NTP time servers.

What is a network time server appliance?

NTP time servers can receive accurate time from a GPS (satellite) and MSF (radio) source, ensuring the time they send to computers and clocks is reliable and accurate.

A radio antenna can be placed inside or outside and picks up the time signal from the nearest radio tower. A GPS antenna must be placed outside and can pick up the time signal from 12 satellites.

An extension kit can also be provided, allowing you to place the antennas up to 1000 metres away from your server. With this extension kit, you can position your antennas in the most convenient location for you.

The NTP time server is connected to your internal network via ethernet to ensure accurate and reliable time is provided.

This makes NTP time servers ideal for:

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