The central server is the heart of any noise monitoring system. It is recommended to dedicate a powerful, reliable and secure server for this purpose. For many customers, it is too expensive to invest in a proper server solution. Furthermore it gives more work for your IT support staff that probably already have full working load.

This way we will take care of the management of the noise system and you will have secure access to the noise data through a web interface. All communications will be secure links with password protected login. Noise data will be safely archived so that old measurements can be easily retrieved if you should later on need to document historic values.
