Overview and Maintenance of Meinberg LANTIME Systems, Hands-on Lab

Efficient administration of your LANTIME server works out well with some fundamental knowledge in time and frequency synchronization. We will cover basics in synchronization technologies, learn about NTP and PTP timing protocols and have a detailed look in different Meinberg products with particular hardware and software functions for successful troubleshooting.

In the course you will learn key LANTIME features such as NTP Client Monitoring, NTP security methods or how to configure 99 available virtual interfaces with separate VLAN settings.

Meinberg Product Training is suitable also for you, if you have just realized timing synchronization requirements in your network, but may not know where to start or which technology is the best choice to meet your needs. Come and join us as well!
