Plaza Computer Systems and Central Systems

IHM distant


G.E.A. is at the cutting edge of information technology in this field. Plaza computers are central to toll systems and are considered to be sensitive appliances. Their technology uses the most advanced and complex techniques of data communication: local operating networks at the lane and peripherals level, Ethernet networks at the plaza computer system level and high data rate numerical communication networks between toll plazas. The available functions cover all the requirements of real-time monitoring on graphic screens and video displays, audio-video communication with patrons or collectors, remote lane operation, revenue auditing and data exchange with other host computers or software.
