GPS Time Sync

GPS Adapter Time Synchronization
The GPS satellite system is widely recognized as the most precise time source commercially available today for time synchronization of sites geographically spread. The Napatech Intelligent Network Adapters can, by use of a Napatech Time Synchronization Unit (NTTSU), be synchronized to a GPS signal.

This capability enables precise latency measurements of network traffic flowing between the sites, which in turn can be used to troubleshoot and optimize networks for better real-time performance.

This is especially important in VoIP applications (to reduce echo and time lag), and in applications that operate in race conditions, such as online auctions and stock exchange trading.
