The communication server that link's it all together

The Comms Server PRO for Windows NT (CSPNT) is the core element of the Global Connect solution. The CSPNT will route the data from any 'upline' object to a 'downline' or 'client' object.
CSPNT is build as an object container. You can place the required objects into the container, make the proper links between the objects, and your CSPNT will start working. Not every object has the capability to interact with any other object of course. You can't connect an ALC upline to a UTS downline. Common sense is always needed.
CSPNT can be located in one ore multiple PC's running the Windows NT operating system.

There are a few permanent components in the container. Those are like the configurator, the system monitor application, an SNMP interface, to name just a few. In general you could call those permanent components the management tools.

The architecture of the CSPNT is designed is such a way that the implementation of a TCP/IP network can be made in a evolutionary way with minimizing the risk of network disturbance.

CSPNT must always have a connection to the TCP/IP network. Either through the downline or through the upline object for data communication, as well as for any management functions.

Any object manages it's own configuration elements. An upline object for instance will deal with the upline parameters like IA/RID, while a CCP client object will deal with the TA/SID's. Within the configuration the link has to be made between the client objects and the upline objects. One upline object can connect to one or several client or downline objects. One client or downline object can connect to one or several upline objects.

If a CSPNT is at a critical position in your network, there is the option to have a second CSPNT in standby mode, that will take over from the active CSPNT as soon as required. This can be done by a management command, or automatic if configured in that mode. The standby CSPNT will take over all the interface connections from the active CSPNT, and the data communication will resume within seconds.

When there are remote CSPNT's in your network, you can have the configuration of all servers at the central CSPNT. Whenever there is a change in the configuration, all CSPNT servers will update automatically and download the new configuration, and this will be activated at the pre-defined date and time.

With the Server Monitor tool, the system administrator can see any element in the entire network that is connected via a TCP/IP interface. This will extend to the possibility to see the configuration and the data going to a printer connected to a CCP client device. Your whole data network is visible from a single PC screen at any place in your network assuming the user has the authority to activate this application.

CSPNT has also a MATIP object. With this object CSPNT can either provide a MATIP client or downline interface or it can work itself as a MATIP client. The MATIP object can be linked to either an ALC/UTS upline or downline whatever configuration is required.
