In the world of modern computing, accurate timing is everything. As networks grow increasingly complicated, they demand reliable standards that ensure everything is running on the same unified schedule.NTP, or Network Time Protocol, is a standard method for synchronizing different computer clocks. Here's how it compares to SNTP, or Simple Network Time Protocol.
Masterclock manufactures a variety of timing PCIe cards to provide millisecond synchronization accuracy for your server or PC. Options for our timing cards include; extended temperature range, TCXO and OCXO time bases, and multiple input/output codes such as time code input from GPS, IRIG-B, SMPTE, EBU and IRIG-B12.
In the world of timing systems, precision and accuracy are everything. In order to synchronize components across great distances, it’s vital that you retain the ability to communicate cleanly.
Most typical coax-based GPS timing networks you encounter in the real world fall prey to basic signal propagation challenges. Latency, degradation, and interference are among some of your worst enemies, and your existing systems may not be able to overcome them. Could optical fiber systems hold the key to building superior timing architectures?
Accurate timing and synchronization can be accomplished in many ways. While your specific choice of technique depends on your requirements, adhering to proven standards make your systems more practical, robust, and scalable. Here’s why you may want to consider employing IRIG-B time codes.
Maintaining accurate time is key in the travel industry, especially in airport terminals and air traffic control systems. Airports and airlines are particularly busy during summer and holiday vacation periods, which is stressful for workers as well as passengers. Having correct airport terminal clocks and in-sync air traffic control systems is essential. One way to reduce stress, prevent delays, and ensure smooth transportation schedules is to maintain precise time synchronization.
In today's economic world, the word on the tip of all of our tongues is "globalization." Long before the days of traveling distance by train, the people of the world explored the furthest reaches of our planet to discover the many cultures and customs of those lands. However, with expedited mass transit came the need for our world to begin solving a very fundamental problem in travel logistics: "What time is it?"
