How to Prevent Costly Leap Second Interruptions

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

At the end of June this year, several high profiles websites suffered disruption and went down due the inclusion of an additional second to the international time system. The websites, including the social news and networking sites Reddit, Foursquare and Linkedin, were disrupted for several hours thanks to the inclusion of a Leap Second to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the world’s global timescale.

A New Slim 1U Rackmount Dual Time Server from Galleon Systems

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Leading providers of time synchronisation equipment and Network Time Protocol Products, Galleon Systems, have released a compact new 1U rackmountable dual time server.

Galleon’s new NTS 6001 1U rackmountable NTP time server can receive atomic clock timing signals from both the Global Positioning System (GPS) and national time and frequency radio transmissions.

Designed to fit snugly into any server rack, the 1U NTS 6001 is a stratum 1 time server capable of symphonizing a network of hundred of machines to within a few
milliseconds of UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

The NTS 6001 consists of both an integral GPS receiver that can simultaneously track up to 12 satellites, and a high gain radio receiver that can receive the MSF (UK), WWVB (USA) and DCF (Germany) radio transmissions.

The NTS- 6001 dual time server features:

  • NTP Version 4
  • Ethernet NTP output jitter typically within 50 microseconds of UTC.
  • High Reliability – solid state design and convection cooled
  • Easy to use – web based user interface for system configuration and management.
  • Free firmware upgrades.
  • LCD display
  • 3 Year Warranty.

The NTS 6001 is the latest in a long line of highly precise NTP time synchronisation devices from atomic clock experts Galleon Systems.

Manufactured in the UK, Galleon Systems have a wide range of other NTP and time synchronisation devices used worldwide by thousands of organizations who need accurate, reliable and precise time.

IBM takes over London Congestion Charge with Galleon Time Servers

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Computer giants IBM have taken over the running of London’s congestion charge scheme this week and like their predecessors, Capita, they will be synchronizing the system with Galleon Systems time servers.

Essential for the running of the London congestion charge scheme and ensuring all the 400 cameras are synchronized to the exact same time, the blue-chip company have chosen Galleon Systems as their supplier of network time servers to control the congestion charging system.

Having supplied Capita the former controllers of the congestion charging scheme with its NTS network time servers to accurately synchronize the camera system, Galleon Systems are now supplying IBM with its mission critical hardware too.

Galleon Systems range of network time servers can synchronize networks with millisecond accuracy and receive an accurate and secure atomic clock time source from the GPS network (Global Positioning System) or the radio time signal broadcast by national physics laboratories like NPL.

The London congestion scheme may not be popular with many who have to pay the daily charge but the scheme has been recognised worldwide as an effective method of reducing city congestion and similar schemes to the London congestion zone are being implemented in cities across the globe.

Galleon Systems are the UK’s leading supplier of network time servers and NTP (Network Time Protocol) time synchronisation equipment, having been providing network timing solutions for over a decade.
