The Galleon NTS-6002-GPS Network Time Server combines a GPS receiver with an embedded solid state computer running the Linux operating system.
The unit connects directly to your network via a CAT5 Ethernet connection and fits in a standard 19″ rack, 1U high. This GPS NTP server incorporates a GPS computer clock and a highly accurate remote antenna that tracks up to 12 satellites for increased precision. The antenna is fully weather prooof (IP65) as it must be installed externally, preferably on a roof top with a 360° view of the sky, it can be positioned up to 200m (600 ft) away as standard, or up to 1,000m (3,000ft) using an optional antenna extension kit.
The NTS-6002-GPS has a backlit LCD display to show run-time information for both the GPS subsystem and the NTP server and to aid installation. The Software drivers conform to the Network Time Protocol Version 4 (NTP V4) and are available for uni-cast, broadcast or multi-cast NTP time synchronization. Configuration and management of the unit is straight forward via a network interface. The IP address of the unit can be configured by using DHCP to assigning an IP address automatically or a fixed IP address can be used.
The NTS-6002-GPS has dual Ethernet ports enabling it to serve time to 2 independant networks and can handle more than 1,000 NTP requests per second per network, making it the first choice for providing accurate time information to large networks with thousands of clients!
