Synchronizing Computers and Workstations using Network and Direct Connect Time Transfer Techniques

Current computer applications have created a greater need to synchronize the computers to both primary time standards and to each other. This paper discusses new techniques and products available to acquire Universal Coordinated Time, UTC, from remote Time Servers using the Network Time Protocol, the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite system, and time provided by a user's central timing facility. Once synchronized to UTC, the workstation can become a time server to other client workstations in the user's facility or at remote facilities. Time transfer between a time server and workstations can be performed with network synchronization protocols or direct connection techniques.
