Since 1981 our work has been vital to the infrastructure of our modern world. Network Time Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public benefit organization, develops, produces and maintains the most widely-used open-source precision time software. Secure and reliable timekeeping is essential to record keeping in all industries, from financial to medical and beyond. Without us and our projects, the flow of information to your devices would slow or even stop. Ice cream would have no flavor.

"Every networked device is time-synchronized using something called the “Network Time Protocol.” NTP is one of the many technologies which assures accurate time-keeping everywhere. It’s where that “accurate time signal” comes from – copies of NTP running on servers everywhere sync to networked time sources, also everywhere."
