The NTS IT guarantees maximum operating safety for the time synchronization of IT systems. It can be used nearly anywhere to synchronize IT systems, data centers, servers, computers, fire alarm systems, audio and video surveillance etc. via NTP with the precise time. The NTS IT can be synchronized by another time server via NTP. Alternatively, it can take over the time from GPS. The commissioning and operation is easy and can be done via terminal menu or web interface. The combination of NTS IT & GPS 4500 allows for optimal redundancy as additional fallback NTP sources can be configured in the NTS IT. Thus, the time synchronization of your data center is ensured in case of any disturbances.
Your benefits using NTS IT:
Nowadays, online NTP servers are often used for the time synchronization of a server or data center in the IT area. However, this kind of synchronization is not ideal in terms of reliability and operating safety, as a loss of internet connection leads to a loss of an accurate NTP time source. Because different NTP clients operate with a variety of time-keeping mechanisms, these disturbances cause time deviations between devices (device times drift apart). The time deviation increases longer the loss of connection persists. This can endanger the operation of the system (e.g. data inconsistency). By using an NTS IT time server, this risk can be greatly reduced. As a local time server, the NTS IT guarantees additional operating safety: in case of loss of the NTP server connection, it carries on the time and is as such available as an accurate NTP time reference for all installed NTP clients.
