UMD- Edge is an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) platform that enables Enterprise Systems to relegate responsibility for control, management and monitoring of Edge Devices, such as RFID and barcode readers, actuators, sensors and human interface terminals.
UMD- Edge is based on next generation message management software, which moves data capture functionality from Enterprise Systems to locally based network devices.
The UMD- Edge modular construction makes it ideal for many data capture applications, such as:
UMD- Edge Technology:
The UMD- Edge environment is provisioned as software running on one or more dedicated computer servers. There are two key elements to the software:
1) UMD- Edge Message Bus This message bus allows Software Interface Modules to seamlessly interchange data and procedures. It is the core of the system that provides modularity and system flexibility.
2) Software Interface Modules This is the software that uses the UMD- Edge Bus for communications. There are four types of module:
Software Interface Modules are provided off the shelf from our growing library, or custom written to suit the application.
RFID installations can generate thousands of messages per minute and data needs to be filtered before it reaches the Enterprise System. UMD- Edge Server solves this problem by separating the Edge Device infrastructure and data capture from the Enterprise System by:
Unique Micro Design can provide complete customised UMD- Edge installations through our engineering ICT solutions offering.
