Network Timing Solutions For Data 

Regulatory and user requirements for data centers timing and synchronization demand sub-microsecond sequential time stamps. Time stamping precision and accuracy is critical not only across servers in a data center, but also between data centers in a network. From hyperscale applications to colocation data center clients, we offer a full range of timing solutions, including the Virtual Primary Reference Clock (vPRTC), that ensure precise, accurate, secure and resilient time.
