Open Access’ NetSpire™ Integrated Communications System is a modular network integrated platform providing solutions over wide area fixed and wireless networks. A fundamental part of any network and a feature of the NetSpire™ solution is timing and synchronisation. NetSpire™ solutions reach a wide variety of industries including Public Safety and Security, Transport, Defense, Telecommunications, Fixed Infrastructure, Public Utilities etc. A majority of industries require all control/network components to be network synchronisation and the ability to promote accurate time over the distributed network. Time synchronisation solutions need just the right equipment and software in just the right places. Whether the application is for accurate computer time for network security, accurate record-keeping or compliance to regulations and best practices, or to improve sophisticated time-critical algorithms, taking care of time-handling within the server or a PC is critical.
