Network Time Protocol or NTP is a protocol that allows synchronizing local computer clocks with a reference time, via the information network.
From the very beginning, this protocol was designed to offer synchronization precision of less than a second. Compared to the Time Protocol service, which offers a time service without any infrastructure, the NTP project offers a global and universal synchronization solution that can be used worldwide.
