Centralized Management System
This software-driven system is the same as that used for SHIELD and can manage thousands of EDGE systems spread across multiple geographies. It also manages other functions like security, commissioning of new installations, periodic software updates, aid in diagnostics, maintenance of EDGE systems, trouble ticketing among many other functions.
This can stand alone managing the system automatically and escalating as required or controlled by operators through Remote Monitoring Stations. Authorized persons can assess the system through their mobile devices and get alerts as deviations happen in real-time. Like the EDGE system, a centralized management system consists of functionally independent modules that can be assembled using a configuration system based on requirements.
This can be hosted in a cloud environment or in a dedicated server as per cost-effectiveness and/or security concerns.
