GeoEvent Server is capable of receiving event data from virtually any source by using an input connector. An input connector must know how the data is being received, as well as how the data is formatted. These tasks are handled by adapters and transports, which are technical implementations beneath each and every connector.
GeoEvent Server provides a number of connectors that enable the creation of new input connectors and output connectors.
- Adapters include generic JSON, Feature JSON, GeoJSON, RSS, XML, and text.
- Transports include system files, HTTP, SMS, SMTP, TCP, UDP, WebSocket, Esri XMPP, and Esri feature services.
If creating a new connector using out-of-the-box GeoEvent Manager does not meet your needs, GCS can create the appropriate custom adapters, transports, and processors using the GeoEvent Server Software Development Kit (SDK).
GCS successfully implements GeoEvent Server for large commercial customer integrations.
