Real time data updating on Webpages from multiple sources –critical for managing geographically distributed systems
Managing large number of remote installations requires real time information updated. Web pages provide the interface and they should have the capacity to connect to multiple locations and update data in real time. Webyfy has developed a technology stack which creates complex webpages with real time data updated directly from multiple locations.
Geographically distributed systems can have hundreds of systems connected to a central location or amongst each other. A command center which monitors various activities of multiple locations simultaneously, needs to represent data from multiple locations in a single interface. This needs to be a web page to enable access from a PC or from a mobile device especially if monitoring is carried out from multiple locations and by multiple people.
The data may need to be represented in the form of a graph or on a map or on a data grid or a combination of all these. Further, the web page may contain a combination of live videos, audio links, data presentations, graphs, ON/OFF and other controls to control the assets in the remote locations. In addition, these web pages must connect to different locations to gather data in real time and update the page. The complexity is significantly high. The conventional technology may find it difficult to satisfy all these requirements simultaneously.
Webyfy has developed a technology stack which can satisfy the need for creating such a complex webpage. The technology enables the web page to gather data directly from respective locations without depending on the web server. It has the capability to update data in real time.
The technology stack also enables automatic map based web page creation with data from multiple sources displayed in real time. In addition, changes colour of icons representing locations depending on the alarm levels or based on the rules defined.
The web pages can be created through configurations without writing any software. They can be altered during run time without affecting the function of any other part of the system. This is the most exciting part of the technology stack.
