Definition

What does NTP mean?

Network Time Protocol
Network Time Protocol is a networking protocol for clock synchronization between computer systems over packet-switched, variable-latency data networks. A less complex implementation of NTP, using the same protocol but without requiring the storage of state over extended periods of time, is known as the Simple Network Time Protocol. It is used in some embedded devices and in applications where high accuracy timing is not required. In operation since before 1985, NTP is one of the oldest Internet protocols in use. NTP was originally designed by David L. Mills of the University of Delaware, who still develops and maintains it with a team of volunteers.
