Equinix Precision Time

Equinix Precision Time delivers a subscription-based time service for customers who need to synchronize the client devices on their network with accurate PTP and NTP time. When subscribed to the service, client devices can synchronize with Equinix Precision Time servers over Equinix Fabric .

Precision Time uses redundant GNSS (GPS) receiver-based time sources that are backed-up by Rubidium atomic clocks to ensure holdover accuracy. The GNSS receiver and the antennas used in the EPT infrastructure have the capability to receive signals from multiple GNSS constellations, including GPS L1, GLONASS L1, BeiDou B1, Galileo E1, and QZSS L1. These time sources, when used in concert, provide multiple levels of redundancy. The GNSS-enabled grandmaster clocks use Rubidium oscillators that can provide up to sub-microsecond accuracy when locked with the GNSS (GPS) source. Even with a loss of connectivity to the source, the service is able to maintain an accuracy up to the sub-microsecond level.

Equinix Precision Time 2021.5 is available September 27, 2021.
