An atomic clock provides an extremely accurate source of time. There are various types of atomic clock, mostly found in laboratories: Caesium Clocks; Hydrogen Clocks; and Rubidium Clocks. Most commerc...
The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is utilised by NTP Server systems to distribute accurate time information to network time clients. The NTP protocol is widely used throughout the Internet to provide sy...
Network Time Protocol (NTP) provides algorithms and defines messages for the synchronisation of time clients to an accurate time reference. This article discusses how to configure a Linux NTP Time Ser...
The Windows operating systems from Windows 2000 onwards has an in-built time synchronisation service - 'Windows Time'. The Windows Time service facilitates a Windows network to provide synchronisation...
PC's have internal real time clocks designed to maintain system time. The internal clocks rely on relatively low-cost crystal oscillators, which are notoriously inaccurate. In many cases PC system tim...
The MSF-60 atomic clock synchronised radio time transmission is utilised by many NTP Time Server and PC computer systems to provide accurate synchronisation of time critical applications. This article...
The latest Windows operating systems from Microsoft have a time synchronization service installed by default called 'Windows Time'. The time service allows a Windows network to provide time synchroniz...
Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to advertise time to network time clients on an IP network. NTP is a UDP based protocol that is used to synchronise system time on network devices. This article des...
The Global positioning System (GPS) is a US military system primarily intended for global navigation. The system provides highly accurate positioning information for navigation. The GPS system consist...
Each PC has an integral real-time clock that maintains internal system time. PC clocks have low-cost crystal oscillators that are notoriously prone to drift. With time each computer in an organisation...
