NTP - We offer a broad range of Network Time Servers using NTP (Network Time Protocol). These NTP Servers provide a convenient and flexible means of accurately time-synchronizing computers, time displays, PBX's, and a wide variety of other equipment. All of the Network Time Servers from Brandywine use Network Time Protocol, or NTP for network time synchronization. These network time servers are secure, reliable and easy to install and use to provide your system with accurate timing. A GPS NTP server will give your company the necessary accuracy for military applications, hospitals, technology companies, and many other utilites that require precision timing to support network accuracy and efficiency.
For more infomation on Network Time Servers please see our Network Time Server FAQ page.
PTP - Brandywine Communications started a new range of instruments utilizing the Precise Time Protocol (PTP).This new line using IEEE 1588 PTP can be used in many applications including TE, WiMAX, Ethernet Backhaul, Passive Optical Networks (PON), Circuit Emulation Services (CES), Electrical Power Distribution, Automation & Motion Control, Test and Measurement, and for many Military apps.
