The tasks are perfectly distributed, and exchange is optimally coordinated between the two main building blocks - AquisNet DAS and AquisNet Data Center. The result is a perfectly balanced and highly stable operation of air quality monitoring networks of any size. AquisNet is a complete solution for air quality monitoring networks. KISTERS AquisNet is available for both: the data center and the monitoring station.
The modularity of AquisNet provides customers with a wide range of options. AquisNet can be deployed as a complete package with software installed at a central control center, as well as at individual remote monitoring locations. Alternatively, AquisNet can be installed only at the central control center, or only installed at individual monitoring locations to provide specific functionality.
AquisNet consists of five fundamental software modules. A functional system can be built by combining just two of the modules, namely the system core with either AquisNet DMO or AquisNet REP. The DV forwarding module and DMS station module, used in individual metering points outside the master station, are optional components.
The strengths of the proposed valid and sound solution concept are briefly presented in the following:
Stability, availability and responsiveness
KISTERS software has a reputation of extreme stability. Software developed by KISTERS is used worldwide by many agencies and industrial players in markets with strict requirements in terms of high-availability and responsiveness that many would find difficult to meet.
KISTERS achieves astonishing levels of stability, availability and responsiveness by means of sharing application layers between its applications. Time series data management is a core competency of KISTERS who have been producing time series data management software for almost 25 years. Other examples of shared expertise/software layers are: Web publishing, GUI development, and Open Data standardization.
Local, national and international experience
KISTERS has a long history of providing environmental software to public authorities or subordinate structures in the US and Canada. Examples from the field of hydrological monitoring include the California Department of Water Resources, New York City Department of Environmental Protection, US Geological Survey, Merced Irrigation District, Turlock Irrigation District, Oregon Water Resources Department, City of Philadelphia, City of Austin, Berkeley National Laboratory, BC Hydro, Alberta Environment, and Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources to name a few. With a client base where more than 97% of our clients are government or public sector agencies, KISTERS is adept at delivering complex projects on-time and within budget.
Incorporates the latest standards and technologies
KISTERS’ software solutions, whether they are for air quality monitoring, hydrological monitoring, or energy monitoring, are known around the world for their high quality, high capacity, scalability and technically accurate results. More than $7 million US is invested annually on research and development initiatives at KISTERS to ensure our solutions are meeting the evolving demands of our clients and keeping up with the pace of technology change. KISTERS software is also developed according to DIN ISO 9001-2008 standard, ensuring the strictest of procedures and processes are followed during the development.
Deliver a productive, easy to learn and user friendly system
Organizations responsible for air quality monitoring often collect large volumes of continuous air quality data. This data needs to be processed to assure quality and to transform it into useable information. Varting numbers of staff is involved in the collection, processing, reporting and management of this data. AquisNet must deliver on specific general requirements relating to: technological capability, support industry standards, meet end-user requirements, foster increased adoption and offer best in class software support resources. AquisNet fulfills all of these key requirements.
AquisNet also provides organizations with;
