NTP server at the Catalonia Neutral Internet Exchange (CATNIX) has been updated. In particular, a new NTP server has been installed at CATNIX’s facilities located at Campus Nord (CSUC-CN). The new server, a Meinberg Lantime M300/GPS, has a high stability TCXO oscillator, GPS receiver with an internal GPS card to simultaneously get synchronized with the satellites to which it has visibility at any moment (between 3 and 8), and anti-lightning protection.
The speed test available at the Catalonia Neutral Internet Exchange Point (CATNIX) has been updated. This free service, which is available on the website, allows the user to easily check the quality of his or her internet connection by providing download and upload speeds in megabits per second (Mbps), and its latency in miliseconds (ms). Indeed, it also provides supplier information as well as a graph showing the test evolution.
