A network time server is not something many business owners think of, and timekeeping is usually not a priority for network administrators. However, proper network time synchronization is an essential part of monitoring a network and resolving issues within it.
Numerous organizations have network devices that use an internal clock or make use of a Public Internet Time Server. The problem is that both of these timekeeping methods are less than optimal solutions. Most companies would be best served by implementing a Stratum 1 NTP server to ensure that devices on the network are properly synchronized, maintain accurate time behind a firewall, and comply with timekeeping regulations.
