This document describes the situation of using a remote warehouse (with no
direct LAN access) with E-WMS.
It is possible to use E-WMS ASP in a remote warehouse. Please have a look at
this sample scenario, where the main office hosts the SQL server, the IIS server
and the RF services PC. The remote warehouse has Internet access to the WMS site,
by using a VPN connection over Internet. Using VPN is optional but provides a
private connection instead of public connection.
A specific bandwidth cannot be
indicated as system requirement for E-WMS, this depends on the number of hand terminals, and whether the
bandwidth is shared for other purposes. A bandwidth and performance test using the WMS client on the hand terminals is
recommended, before going live.
SQL data is not
exchanged over the Internet, only the IIS server accesses the SQL
Between HQ and warehouse, only HTML or XML generated by the IIS server is sent to the warehouse, and input from the
hand terminals is sent back. Exact Globe Next and WMS control centers can still
be used by means of terminal server or Citrix solution.
