GMDSS Server


The GMDSS Server is a software based solution acting as a central point for any GMDSS network. As a key component of the GMDSS network, the GMDSS server is specially designed for 24/24 hours and 7/7 days operations. In order to warranty such robustness, many key points are continuously considered since preliminary design:

  • Robust and modular software design;
  • Detailed logging of every operation (regular and abnormal);
  • Strict checking of every inputs (configuration and Data);
  • External User interface based on a Web Server;
  • Redundancy and backup considered since first design;

The GMDSS Server is based on a robust software-based stream routing matrix able to route both input streams coming for example from receivers or operator consoles and output streams going to transmitters or operator consoles. The routing matrix may be configured such a way to feed Voice/DSC/NAVTEX/NBDP Encoders/Decoders and also operator console with any stream depending on the needs. Symmetrically, the routing matrix is also able to feed back any stream to any transmitters or transceivers.

The GMDSS Server product is fully integrated inside a 19" - 4U rack with hot-swappable dual power supplies from 100/240 VAC - 50/60Hz, a RAID 1 redundant hard disk system (hot swappable disks on front panel) and the possibility to change the Air Filter on the front panel for an easy maintenance on site. The GMDSS Server has basic LED indicators available on the front panel for Fan monitoring, Temperature monitoring, Power indication and hard disk activity. The GMDSS Server works under Windows 7 Pro operating system (license included).

The GMDSS Server uses Graphical User Interface for system setup, monitoring and maintenance available through user friendly HTML pages (Web remote control). It provides multiple management tools for:

  • Network Architecture Management;
  • Network Supervision/Monitoring Management.
  • DSC/NAVTEX/NBDP Database Messages Editor;
  • Voice/DSC/NAVTEX Scheduling Management;
  • DSC/NAVTEX History Log;
  • MMSI Database Management;
  • User Database Management;
