Please allow me to resurrect this thread.
In the business of TV broadcasters and media companies, a NTP server can be of great importance. Here is the feedback request from one of our customers:
Our audio mixer tries to reach an NTP server when it starts. We also have a physical clock inside the TV car that has be perfectly synchronised as it serves for coordination with the news. As these devices start much faster than the time needed for the process “powerup of HD4 cellular modules, get sync, get PepVPN up and then company NTP is available”, then it gets a wrong time and stays like this. Then we have to reboot certain devices after vpn is up to recover the correct time and only then can the local team work. It is not convenient and risky
It is a matter centralisation of all networking functionality and its concentration into the main router HD4 in their truck. If it could be used as a reference, all devices in the truck would then be asap available and they wouldn’t need to wait 15 min before they can act. These 15 min can be quite important in this market segment.
Hope this helps,
