The crucial role of timing precision in modern industries

In various industries, the precision of time synchronisation is paramount. Its absence could hinder financial services firms in accurately tracking stock trading or detecting fraud attempts. Critical military missions might fail, manufacturing, healthcare and transport processes could become unmanageable, and the safety of self-driving cars would be compromised.

Enterprises rely significantly on precise timing. If servers, storage systems, switches, and routers lack proper synchronisation, transaction logs become questionable. Consider a scenario: did a transaction occur on May 4th at 11:59 or May 5th at 12:00:00? Though seemingly insignificant, this discrepancy can reverberate across interconnected systems, affecting SLAs and compliance. Timing failures can ruin video conferences, leading to poor-quality video and audio that isn’t synchronised—resulting in jitter and cutting off participant’s mid-sentence. Moreover, a lack of synchronisation between servers can jeopardise cyber security, as inconsistent log files make it challenging to comprehend when and how an intrusion occurred
