DX-Altus is built on Omnitronics’ philosophy of modular system architecture, a key aspect of reliability. By using a dedicated server, DX-Altus avoids many of the downfalls of a PC infrastructure. The product life for the DX-Altus is estimated to be 2.5 to 3 times that of the average PC. In addition, the system is not fallible to common PC problems such as viruses.
DX-Altus takes reliability even further by providing complete redundancy. Firstly, soft degradation is included. For example, in the unlikely event that an operator’s module fails, a standby module will be switched into operation. In addition, if the Enterprise version of the DX-Altus is chosen, a whole of system backup can be created with a seamless changeover to the backup system in the event of an outage. For organisations that cannot afford any communications downtime, this feature is invaluable and provides complete peace of mind.
