Computer Project of Illinois, Inc. (CPI) and The Kentucky State Police (KSP) has successfully migrated its current OpenFox® Message Switch and ancillary Databases from the current AIX environment to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) environment.

CPI spearheaded the project with a clear plan that included procurement, discovery & design, configuration testing, user acceptance testing, implementation, cut-over, and transition assistance.

CPI successfully upgraded the core OpenFox® Message Switch modules and replaced the current Power/AIX-based OpenFox® Message Switch Systems with a Linux/RHEL Virtual Machines (VM) which were provided by CPI.

The following OpenFox® components were upgraded in the migration:

  • Message Switch
  • Configurator
  • Operator Aid
  • Archive
  • Interceptor

  • Installed SQL Server 2016 and Oracle 12.1 software and database environments
