On-Premises Data Center

Historically, all organizations used on-premises data centers. An on-prem data center simply means that the organization maintains all of the IT infrastructure needed by the business on-site.

 An on-prem data center includes everything from the servers that support web and email to the networking hardware connecting them to support infrastructure equipment like uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). Depending on the organization, this can range from a server closet to a massive, dedicated private data center like those operated by large tech corporations.

Cloud Data Center

Over time, organizations have increasingly moved away from the on-premises data center. Instead, they have adopted cloud data centers.

 A cloud data center moves a traditional on-prem data center off-site. Instead of personally managing their own infrastructure, an organization leases infrastructure managed by a third-party partner and accesses data center resources over the Internet. Under this model, the cloud service provider is responsible for maintenance, updates, and meeting service level agreements (SLAs) for the parts of the infrastructure stack under their direct control.

Shared Responsibility Model

The migration from an on-premises data center to a cloud data center doesn’t mean moving everything to the cloud. Many companies have hybrid cloud data centers which have a mix of on-premises data center components and virtual data centers components. In the figure below we see how as-a-service models are shifting ownership of data center and infrastructure components from a fully owned and operated on-premises facility towards a commodity service model.

data center vs. cloud

With these new models come a sharing of responsibilities between the cloud customer and service provider. Depending on the model selected, an organization may be responsible for maintaining and securing more or less of their infrastructure stack. The breakdown of responsibilities is outlined by the cloud services provider in shared responsibilities models.

On-Premises Data Centers vs Cloud Data Centers

Nearly all organizations now have at least some of their infrastructure hosted in the cloud. The reason for this is that cloud data centers offer a number of advantages over maintaining an on-prem data center.  Some of the pros and cons of cloud-based vs. on-premises data centers include:

 

  • Scalability: In an on-premises data center, resource scalability is limited by the infrastructure that the company has purchased and deployed. In the cloud, additional resources can be quickly and easily spun up as needed.
  • Flexibility: In an on-premises data center, resource flexibility is limited by the need to acquire, provision, or update appliances. In the cloud, a customer can spin up or take down resources quickly to meet business needs.
  • Cost: Maintaining an on-prem data center is more expensive than a cloud-based one.  On-prem, an organization pays full price for all of their infrastructure. In the cloud, resources can be shared, and cloud service providers can take advantage of economies of scale.
  • Availability: In an on-premises data center, an organization has complete control over their infrastructure, which can be good or bad.  In the cloud, availability is protected by service level agreements, which may provide better guarantees than an organization can in-house.
  • Security: In the cloud, the cloud service provider is responsible for securing part of an organization’s infrastructure stack and is likely more practiced at doing so. However, some customers may want additional security of their cloud-based data centers that are not natively provided by the cloud service provider.
  • Accessibility: In an on-prem data center, the organization has complete control over the systems that it deploys and uses. In the cloud, the organization is limited to what is offered by the service provider.

With the rapid development of the global economy and the consistently improving living standard, there has been a growing number of vehicles. for efficient vehicle management, there has been an increasing number of parking lots and vehicle management areas beginning to use License Plate Recognition (LPR) products and Ultra-high Frequency (UHF) products. The automatic license plate identification enables fast vehicle access to parking, which provides convenient user experience.

Automatic Vehicle Recognition (With UHF Reader and UHF Tag)

Its operation starts when a user with the passive tag drive through the UHF reader located at the entrance of the parking lot. The UHF reader will recognize the tag. The carpark barrier will lift up for access upon valid recognition. If not, access will be denied.

Automatic Number Plates Verification (With LPR Camera)

LPR technology is an application of computer video image recognition technology in license plate identification area. Its operation starts when the vehicle is located at the entrance of the parking lot, the LPR Camera will scan on the license plate character, and its recognition technology will identify the license plate number, color and other information. If the number on the license plate is valid, the car park barrier will lift for access, otherwise, no access will be allowed.

Dual Number Plate Authentication

(UHF and LPR Based Two Level Authentication System for Vehicles)
Dual number plate authentication is a Multi-factor authentication to use of several authentication techniques together. Once the vehicle is located at the entrance of the carpark lot, both of the UHF reader and LPR Camera will start to recognise the UHF Tag and the number plate on the vehicle. If the verification of the number plate and the UHF tag is valid, the car park barrier will lift for access, otherwise no access will be allowed.

 

 

Blacklist and Whitelist Management

Car Park System management Software includes Role and Black and White Lists.

If the cars are pre-set on the white list, including _re trucks, police cars, and privileged cars, can enter and exit the parking lot free of charge. Otherwise, cars on the black list are not allowed to enter or exit the parking lot.

UHF Tag

There are two kinds of UHF tags in this long distance fixed vehicle access management application.

UHF Reader

The UHF RFID reader is an RFID long-range proximity card reader which can simultaneously read multiple passive UHF tags at ranges up to 12m. The reader is waterproof and is suitable for use in a wide range of RFID applications, such as transport management, vehicle management, car parking, production process control, and access control.

License Plate Recognition (LPR) Camera

LPR technology is an application of computer video image recognition technology in license plate identification area. This technology through the license plate crawling, image pre-processing, feature extraction, license plate character recognition technology to identify the license plate number, color and other information.

 A parking system shows the parking spaces availability in a car park or controlled parking areas. It presents drivers with dynamic information about the occupancy of lots, its amounts and locations within the venue, and enables the drivers to reduce unnecessary driving and circling in the parking.

Hence, a strong parking solution presents three main benefits: reducing vehicle congestion and time for finding a free parking spot, reducing emissions of cars due to better navigation, offering a full monitoring of all parking spaces.

 

Our parking management system provides the operators with an optimization of the revenue of their car park and the drivers with a user-friendly payment experience.

Digital Guidance Signage

We offer a very complete Digital Guidance Signage based on variable message signs displaying real-time space availability and direction to available bays:​

  •  Working in conjunction with our sensors, real-time occupancy status is wirelessly transmitted to Variable Message Signage, at every driver decision point indicating how many spaces are available, and where. ​
  •  The variable message signs are designed and manufactured to the customer requirements:
      •  
    Exterior plinth signs
      : can be mounted either to the ground or to a wall and are typically used at the entrances to multi-level car parks, or at the end of aisles in outdoor car parks.​
    •  Overhead LED signs: can be for internal way finding in multi-level car parks and are mounted on the ceiling.​ ​
  •  A mains power connection is required for each sign. ​
  •  To maximize efficiency and improve traffic flow, signage is strategically placed strategically placed down every aisle and at key decision points, delivering the right information at the right time.

We offer a fully-integrated Overhead Parking guidance for car parks operation
