Understanding Network Time Machine Clock Products

There are two major time keeping protocols in use today on networks: The NTP protocol and the PTP protocol.  TimeMachines offers both types and their products represent major advancements in performance and value for accurate network time synchronization.

NTP: short for Network Time Protocol, is designed to synchronize the clocks of computers over a single network, no matter how large or complicated. The synchronization occurs through packet-switched variable-latency data networks and has been in operation since the mid-1980s. NTP’s main intention is to synchronize all participating computers within milliseconds of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

PTP: short for Precision Time Protocol, based on the IEEE 1588 standard, is also designed to synchronize clocks through commuter networks, but with a focus on local area networks and sub-microsecond ranges. A typical PTP system usually consists of various ordinary clocks connected to a single network. Automatically,  grandmaster clock is chosen and all other participating clocks synchronize directly to the grandmaster’s timescale.
