The Traffic Management system is a client-server application based on MS SQL as underlying database. The Database Server is equipped with 2x network cards whereas one of these connect to the Internet for allowing remote access via a firewall and the other connects the clients to this server via a Fast Ethernet switch. Unlimited clients can access the server via a web interface. The clients are working on the server through the network and all data is entered, saved and manipulated here. External clients can access only when the firewall was opened for their individual IP address.
TrafficBox allows new & existing broadcasters to achieve more efficient workflow.
