AP Network Time

NTP (Network Time Protocol) is central to networks that rely on their controller or service platform to supply system time to managed devices. Without NTP, system time is unpredictable, which can result in data loss, failed processes and compromised security. With network speed, memory, and capability increasing at an exponential rate, the accuracy, precision, and synchronization of network time is essential in an enterprise network. The controller or service platform can optionally use a dedicated server to supply system time. The controller or service platform can also use several forms of NTP messaging to sync system time with authenticated network traffic.

The Network Time screen provides detailed statistics of an associated NTP Server of an access point. Use this screen to review the statistics for each access point.

The Network Time statistics screen consists of two tabs:
