Santa Rosa, CA, January 10, 2001 — EndRun Technologies, a precision time and frequency company, today announced a new breakthrough product based on their "Indirect GPS" Timing Technology – the Praecis Cntp. It is used to synchronize clocks on servers and workstations across entire enterprise networks. Accurately synchronized clocks are critical for log file accuracy, billing systems, e-commerce, database integrity, and other essential applications in today"s corporate enterprise network.
The Praecis Cntp is a breakthrough in network synchronization because it is the first standalone network time server based on a new "Indirect GPS" timing technology. Competing products base their internal timing on GPS, which requires a rooftop-mounted antenna. Installing the antenna with its many yards of cabling is usually a problem, contains many hidden costs, and can be impossible in some locations. By contrast, the Praecis Cntp derives its timing information from the CDMA cellular mobile telecommunications network, an indirect form of GPS. Since these signals can be received inside buildings there is no antenna installation hassle, thus saving customers time and money. Praecis Cntp can establish UTC time to the 10-microsecond level of accuracy which easily fulfills current network sync requirements.
"We are very excited with initial interest in the Praecis Cntp", says Peter England, Vice President of Sales. "Many networking customers are put off by the prospect of having to install a GPS antenna and long cable runs to the roof. Praecis Cntp takes the hassle out of installing an NTP server. Combine that with the fact that it is very competitively priced and you have an easy sell."
