CARE operates in places around the world where access to the Internet is challenging. Having hosts and router clocks synchronized plays a vital role in communications and applications. Multiple users over an IP service, security firewalls, high traffic LAN systems and server timing drifts cause standard NTP services to reset timing, causing asynchronous transmissions. When data transmissions become asynchronous, VoIP users experience "jitter" which manifests as a distortion or stutter of voice or video communications. For CARE, these communications can be critical.
Greg Sjogren, Chief Technology Officer for CARE said, “By relying on highly accurate, synchronized time from Sapling products, instead of standard NTP services, CARE’s communications and applications can operate more effectively and efficiently.”
“Sapling is pleased to be working with CARE and sponsoring time synchronization equipment, helping to keep all 73 of their offices in sync. We hope our partnership allows them to focus on what they do best, humanitarian efforts around the world,” said Lou D’Amelio, Sapling’s Director of Sales and Marketing.
