iTooth Server Suite (Bluetooth Access Control)
The iTooth Server suite is an interactive web enabled Bluetooth access control server application for installing, configuring, operating and maintaining networked Bluetooth enabled access control devices. The iTooth server application combines a powerful LAN/WAN client-server architecture with an easy-to-use user interface based on the latest Echelon LNS 3.2 network operating system, Microsoft .NET 3.0 Framework, ASP.NET 2.0 and SQL Server 2005 technology.
The result is a sophisticated server application enabling property managers, maintenance technicians or up-scale homeowners to monitor and control
networks of Bluelon BlueAccess based devices either locally or remotely from virtually any web browser in the world. The iTooth system is compatible with common networking protocols including TCP, PPP, NAT, DHCP, DNS, MD5, HTTP and HTTPS allowing the iTooth server to be hosted as locally or remotely managed servers, serving iTooth services through IP or private twisted-pair networks to the premises. Remotely located iTooth server farms can be part of a centrally managed corporate solution or offered by Bluelon Value Added Reseller (VAR) integrators as a value added service to the building owner.

What is hardware platform virtualization?
|Virtualization is an abstraction layer that decouples the physical hardware from the operating system to deliver greater IT resource utilization and flexibility. A typical production environment is shown below:|
Third party integration option (Optional)
The latest version of the iTooth Server supports a selection of legacy Wiegand enabled devices, such as, selected stand-alone Keypads, Biometric Readers, generic Credit Card type of readers, HID™ cards and a wide range of other 125Khz cards together with Mifare, iClass, and many other legacy 13.56 MHz technologies. The feature allows for over-all cost reduction in both retrofit and new projects, where it is the intention to either gradually transition to Bluetooth based access control technology or where a technology mix is desired.
The iTooth Server has been tested to be compatible with with the following third-party Wiegand based access control modules:
