WHY DO WE NEED A TIME SERVER?

According to ntp.org, “If business, organization or human life depends on having correct time or can be harmed by it being wrong, you shouldn’t ‘just get it off the internet’.” [http://www. pool.ntp.org/en/use.html, accessed Jan 15, 2016].  Indeterminate source identification, indeterminate accuracy variation, and the inability to log the resulting time synchronization calls to question the use of time from the internet.  What’s more, internet time servers are subject to being spoofed (bad NTP data sent from a faked IP address) and direct attacks including NTP poisoning, replay, and denial of service. So don’t leave it to chance.

Philippine Standard Time

When there is a business-critical need to trace time to an accurate source, the clear solution is GPS time server appliances deployed on the local network.  Time from GPS signals is recognized as  the  most  accurate,  available  and  traceable  time  source.  GPS- based time servers are easy and simple appliances to add to the local network. Even when different GPS time servers are deployed in  different  locations  they  will  provide  the  same  time  regardless of geographies. What’s more, GPS as a local time source can be monitored so its logs can be part of the audit trail.
