A typical network time synchronization scenario is depicted
in the diagram shown below.
In this scenario, each workstation synchronizes to a central time server on the corporate LAN. The server operates PresenTense Time
Server software to synchronize its own clock to a primary and / or redundant time source on the global internet and each work station
in turn operates PresenTense time client software to synchronize to the corporate server.
In this manner, time stamps are propagated from a single network host with access to an accurate time source to clients on the network
without such access. This guarantees a coherent propagation of time to all clients with a minimum of traffic going over external
For applications where time accuracy requirements are even higher or corporate security policies do not allow external time source
synchronization, PresenTense Time Server can be configured to synchronize with a GPS time
