Getting clocks to agree on the time is tricky. Getting them to agree on
the time better than 100 nanoseconds is even trickier.

In this talk I will provide an introduction to the basic principles of
the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and how it can be used to precisely
synchronize computers over a LAN.

Speaker Bio
