Pitch Booster – for HLA Wide Area Networking

Home » Products » Pitch Booster – for HLA Wide Area Networking

A Persistent Simulation Enterprise

Pitch Booster enables you to easily run your simulations between different sites, no matter if they are far away, if they are behind firewalls or if the communication links are slow or unreliable. With a Booster installed in each location, it looks like all simulations are in the same room.

Pitch Booster™ is also a revolution when it comes to simplifying network and firewall configuration issues, enabling you to quickly setup and run one or many federation executions across your organizations WAN or over the Internet.

Connect any number of federates, federations and RTIs. Pitch Booster™ is firewall friendly – make one minor modification only once.

Features
Connect Nations, Continents and the Cloud
Pitch Booster enables you to build national and international training networks within your own organization and with partners. Perform distributed analysis or engineering between different sites in your organization. Use the power of the Cloud and connect simulations in the Cloud with your local simulations.
Seamlessly Mix Local and Remote Systems
With Pitch Booster you can connect to remote simulations, just as if they were in the same room and on the same network. Make your systems work together using Pitch pRTI and the HLA standard. Discover and interoperate with assets in local and remote sites. Run several exercises and RTIs in parallell over one Booster network.

Support Mobile Simulations
Pitch Booster enables you to connect sites even if they have less than perfect connections. Deploy training systems in the field using 3G and 4G mobile networks. Install simulations in remote sites where high speed networking is unavailable. Benefit from simulation and training almost anywhere.

Improve Performance and Fault Tolerance
Pitch Booster helps you optmize the use of your networks by applying several types of smart compression. It also provides fault tolerance for the communication. Even if the network is temporarily broken, your simulations will not be terminated. The data flow resumes as soon as connectivity is regained, with minimal impact on your simulations.
Get in Control of Your Simulation Cloud
It is easy to get perfect insight into the status of your enterprise with the powerful graphical user interface of Pitch Booster. Add Pitch Commander and you can monitor and control local and remote systems across all sites. The Web View of Pitch pRTI gives you even more detailed information across all sites.
Compatible with Your Existing Network
Pitch Booster enables your simulations to stay on your local network while interoperating with simulations on other sites. There is no need to modify your existing corporate network or to move your simulations to dedicated networks or VPNs. Pitch Booster works well behind firewalls. Install Pitch Booster once and interoperate as much as you need without complicated reconfigurations.
