Technically Speaking

How does Axxon Intellect PSIM software work? We answer a few of your technical questions here.

What is Axxon Intellect PSIM's architecture?

Axxon Intellect PSIM software forgoes classic client-server and three-tiered architecture for a distributed model. Axxon Intellect PSIM uses three components: server, client and gateway. The servers form a network segment with a peer-to-peer structure all data or event connections are server-to-server where possible. Clients connect to one or many servers directly or through gateways.

Gateways serve as traffic routers and optimizers, defining segments of the distributed network. A peer-to-peer Axxon Intellect PSIM network takes advantage of the many types of connectivity (LAN, WAN, mobile) between participants in a network and their cumulative bandwidth, rather than conventional centralized resources where a relatively low number of servers provide the core value to a service or application.

A distributed approach means that Axxon Intellect PSIM is highly reliable and fail-safe if a problem arises in a module or network link, Axxon Intellect PSIM automatically switches over to another functioning server.

The server component of Axxon Intellect PSIM currently runs on NT, Linux, and AIX machines.

Axxon Intellect PSIM's open architecture and object orientation means that we or our partners can provide drivers or connectors for your hardware. With Axxon Intellect PSIM, theres no need to upgrade your hardware until youre ready to grow.

What is Axxon Intellect PSIM built on?

Axxon Intellect PSIM is coded in industry-standard C++. From the ground up, Axxon Intellect PSIM uses an object-oriented approach anything connected to it (a camera, for example) is represented as a consistent abstraction to the end user. Users dont have to worry about the type of camera, how its connected, or where its mounted they can control all of the cameras (or other sensors) the same way.

What kind of terminals can users access Axxon Intellect PSIM from?

Any user with a Windows workstation can be set up to use Axxon Intellect PSIM. For mobile users, Axxon provides a special module that extends Axxon Intellect PSIM access to cell phones, PDAs, vertical tablet hardware, and other devices.
