NYI Launches High Precision Time Service, Powered by Perseus, at Its New York and New Jersey Data Centers

Service Enables Customers to Accurately Synchronize Their Time Systems Across Multiple Data Centers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2014) -  NYI, a New York company specializing in customized technology infrastructure solutions, today announces the first of several joint solution offerings in conjunction with Perseus Telecom, provider of ultra low-latency global connectivity. The partnership will offer NYI customers access to Perseus telecommunication services, while Perseus clients will have direct access to enterprise-class colocation and a full suite of cloud and managed services from NYI. 

The first new joint services offering called High Precision Time ™, is now available at NYI's New York and New Jersey data centers. This next-generation offering enables customers in the financial, legal and healthcare communities to synchronize their time systems across a multitude of data centers where Perseus offers the service.

"We are committed to alleviating the complexities customers face when trying to achieve and maintain a highly accurate and provable time synchronization policy, and partnering with Perseus allows us to further that effort," states Phil Koblence, Chief Operating Officer at NYI. "NYI continues to establish global partnerships that provide world-class infrastructure services to match the diverse needs and requirements of our customers."

High Precision Time™ includes access to a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-certified GPS antenna, as well as Network Time Protocol (NTP) and Precision Time Protocol (PTP) connectivity with nanosecond accuracy to the Coordinated Universal Time UTC (NIST) timescale. Services include SLA reports on quality, availability and high accuracy of UTC (NIST) time with end-to-end custody, which allows proof of calibration with U.S.-certified time base for precision and compliance purposes.

"Introducing High Precision Time™ in NYI data centers is a key strategy for us, as our mutual customers will now have access to low latency connectivity to financial markets on a global scale," states Andrew Kusminsky, Chief Operating and Strategy Officer at Perseus Telecom. "These trading firms and vendors require help to mitigate risk and meet new financial compliance guidelines, and we look forward to working with them to meet that high level of responsibility in compliance and high-precision trading."

At NYI data centers, both companies' clients can directly cross connect to High Precision Time™. This gives customers access to NYI's fully redundant infrastructure, cloud computing and hybrid services to support their business-critical operations and also:

  • Compliance-ready proof of government certified time through a wide range of delivery methods, such as NTP, PTP, 1PPS and GPS
  • Professional services to aid in implementing time in their environments
  • Access to a certified Stratum-1 time source
  • The ability to build global synchronization capabilities that calibrate within sub-nanoseconds to the UTC (NIST) timescale
