Connection Pooling is used to deliver a maximum return on your ERP user licensing costs.
Although most wireless devices perform specific, targeted tasks, in many cases, it does not make sense to allocate a full ERP system license simply for data collection. Inovity’ business connectors take this into account, and provide a mechanism by which data connections can be shared among many users.
It works by having a server own the data connection process. When a device needs access to a specific data connection, it will notify the server which will provide it the connection. If one is not available, the server will place the request in a queue and possibly start an additional connection to the data source.
This process works well because most transactions process in a few milliseconds, therefore a single data connection can easily support a large number of users.
