Architecture Overview

ICM’s Auto Bag Drop architecture is multi-tiered comprised of the ABD Client, the Bag Drop Server, the ABD System Manager server and the airline Departure Control System (DCS). The Bag Drop Server provides communications between the DCS host and a number of ABD Clients and contains the multi- airline business logic decisions. The ABD System Manager server monitors both the ABD hardware and the applications, providing the appropriate information, access and control to authorised personnel (for ABD hardware, software updates and overall transaction data). The ABD application provides the end-user functionality that the ABD offers to the passenger for baggage drop off.
