Time Drift on BGS5T | Telit Cinterion IoT Developer Community

February 7, 2017 - 1:38pm, 1522 views


The Terminal BGS5T's system clock has a huge timedrift.

In order to prove it, I have been sending its timestamp to a server.

I made sure that my server was always sharp correct and in UTC.

I then calculated the difference between the server's timestamp and the module's timestamp

Conclusion: after 12h, all my 15 machines had a drift of around 400 secs!

Anyone with the same problems? Ideas to overcome this problem?

Gemalto, get a grip and start producing something good!
