Time Synchronization Needs in Communications and IT by Intel Corporation

This Gestalt IT Showcase is presented by Kevin W. Bross, Principal Engineer/Modular Architect at Intel Corporation.

Key Insights:
– Distributed applications and communications systems need timing synchronization
– What other applications are driving synchronization needs? What level of synchronization is needed?
– Timing references are often tied to GPS devices; should we be integrating GPS units into NICs and servers, or should we leave them as dedicated timing appliances?
