The FbF bioServer is a high-speed, high-volume biometric transaction-processing
engine with an objective of eliminating the time and cost required to develop
and integrate a scalable biometric matching server.
The bioServer is designed to support scalable deployments
ranging from a single PC-class computer to hundreds of servers distributed
across a wide area network. With a
common strategy across such a large variance in operating capacity, the
bioServer is able to more effectively serve as a universal model for processing
biometric requests in both small scale and nation scale solutions. Further, this scalability will allow the
bioServer to more effectively be deployed in remote and distributed processing
scenarios where 1,000’s of local servers are required in the absence of
reliable network connectivity (e.g.
developing nations and military applications).
FbF bioServer is comprises of various components which are:
Figure 1, shows the different components of FbF bioServer and how
they are tied and communicate with each other. Figure also show how the client
application can communicate with bioServer as per their requirement on
different interfaces exposed to them.
Q: What is FbF bioServer V2.0 License?
A: FbF bioServer V2.0 License is a
combination of different sub-licenses which are provided to you as per your
requirements. Few of these sub-licenses are mandatory to run the FbF bioServer
and others are optional depending on what Biometric modality you want to work
on (Like Fingerprint, Face, Iris etc).
Following sub-licenses are
possible in a FbF bioServer License:
Q: What type of network environment is required in order to connect to FbF bioServer V2.0? Can I just use a household wireless environment?
A: There is no special network requirement for connecting to FbF bioServer. You can connect and communicate with FbF bioServer in “Large Scale Active Directory Driven Environment” or even in a “House Hold Wireless Network”.
Q: What is Taxonomy and how do I get Taxonomy?
A: You can consider Taxonomy as a Unique Id assigned to client by
Fulcrum Biometrics. You can get it from Fulcrum Biometrics; you will not be
able to perform any operations on FbF bioServer unless you have a minimum of
One Taxonomy with you.
