MegaMatcher Accelerator

Solution for large-scale AFIS or multi-biometric systems

MegaMatcher Accelerator is a hardware/software solution that provides high speed, high volume biometric identification for national-scale projects.

The Extreme and Extended versions are designed to run on server hardware and perform fast biometric template matching on the server-side of a large-scale AFIS or multi-modal system. The Standard version and Development Edition are intended to be run on a common PC. MegaMatcher Accelerator software licenses are available for new and existing MegaMatcher Extended SDK customers.

MegaMatcher Accelerator Extended

MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended is a family of biometric solutions for fast fingerprint, iris and face matching on the server-side of an AFIS or multi-biometric system. The solutions are intended for national-scale biometric identification projects with millions of people enrolled in the database.

  • These biometric matching engines can be used with MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended:
    • Fast fingerprint, iris and face matching engines that can be used separately or together. See technical specifications for engine comparison and licensing model for engine availability.
    • Fingerprint, face, iris and voiceprint matching engines that can be used separately or together to validate matching results produced by the fast fingerprint, face and/or iris engines. See MegaMatcher 10.0 SDK reliability tests for more information.
  • Available as installation CD image which includes:
    • Debian Linux OS;
    • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended software.
  • Server hardware is optionally available. In this case the MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended software will be pre-installed by Neurotechnology on each unit, and the customers will receive ready-to use hardware/software solution.
    HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9 server units are offered with these specifications:
    • 2 x Intel Xeon processor E5-2680 v3 (12 cores, 30M cache, 2.5 GHz);
    • RAM, depending on the number of biometric engines:
      • 128 GB RAM (8 x 16 GB DDR4 2Rx4 PC4-2133P-R) – for single biometric engine;
      • 256 GB RAM (16 x 16 GB DDR4 2Rx4 PC4-2133P-R) – for two biometric engines;
      • 384 GB RAM (24 x 16 GB DDR4 2Rx4 PC4-2133P-R) – for three biometric engines;
    • 6 x 300 GB HDD (SAS, 10,000 rpm);
    • HP iLO Advanced;
    • HP Smart Array P440ar/2G FIO Controller.
  • Multiple MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended units can be combined using the included cluster software to reach a higher level of performance.

A client communication module is included with MegaMatcher 10.0 Extended SDK. The module allows the sending of a task to MegaMatcher Accelerator, querying the status of the task, retrieving the results and then removing the task. A high-level API is provided for the developer, all low-level communications are hidden.
