Definition Edit

The network time protocol (NTP)

is used to synchronize the time of a computer client or server to another server or reference time source, such as a terrestrial or satellite broadcast service or modem. NTP provides distributed time accuracies on the order of one millisecond on local area networks (LANs) and tens of milliseconds on wide area networks (WANs). NTP is widely used over the Internet to synchronize network devices to national time references.[1]
