IB (Information Broker)

IB (Information Broker)
Today, the integration and coordination of airports’ business models, technological infrastructure, and countless different subsystems is more important than ever.
TAV Technologies IB (Information Broker) is delivered to remedy these integration problems with its sophisticated capabilities by implementing the functions of industry-wide accepted Enterprise Service Bus technologies.
The queuing of messages and creating an information integration web between different systems using an open platform with different protocols is an example of this information exchange.

TAV Technologies IB captures operation and management information from each of the systems running in the airport and provides real-time information for the overall management of the airport. TAV Technologies IB provides a common platform for all distinct systems to run in synchronization and exchange real time data.

IB is a unified information distribution and transformation system with almost no limitations. The IB system is an XML-based protocol interface that utilizes the information to be transferred either in batch or in real-time mode.
