computer on your network is designated the Map Distribution Server.
Three Maverick programs (CommAgent, MapUpdateServer,
and ScheduleServer) on this machine enable the distribution
of map and software updates, enable Scheduled Routing capabilityand
provide full communication functionality for your Maverick Mapping System
software coordinates the real-time network distribution of street closures
throughout the system. In Maverick version 5.1 or greater, it is possible
to open or close streets from any networked workstation. These closures
will then be broadcast instantly to all other connected Maverick workstations.
MapUpdate Server is the software that handles the distribution
of maps to stations within your system. This process enables all network
stations to operate using the same MapSet and is virtually invisible
to all but the Map Administrator.
When updated map layers are available, the System Administrator will
initiate the distribution process and each Workstation will be notified
by a pop-up window that new map files are present. Offline Workstations
will receive the update notification when they come back online.
CommAgent is a program
that facilitates and monitors communication between Maverick and its
information sources as well as communications between the various Maverick
components on the network. CommAgent also handles the distribution of
updated maps and Maverick program updates.
