We have had a request for help with a project from a organisation and part of the requirements is there MUST be an NTP server within the cellular/router, this is how we need it to run,
Time preference to run in this order:
- GPS Receiver
- Cellular Tower reference (without SIM card)
- Cellular Tower reference (with SIM card)
- Internal Clock
- external NTP Server 1
- external NTP Server 2
- external NTP Server 3
- external NTP Server 4
- external NTP Server 5
Currently the organisation is looking at another Australian brand of router that is Linux based (we have the full SDK authority for this brand though not the resources to develop the solution currently), the other issue for the current brand they are looking at is it does not support LTEA with there modems unless the organisation agrees to by ten thousand units upfront (we and them both said we’ll look elsewhere).
Just wanted to add out weight to have an NTP server added in, especially with the MAX range as they can reference with the inbuilt GPS unit (which is especially useful in remote areas when travailing without cellular coverage).
Happy to Help,
