In 1993, retailers of petroleum products began introducing computer systems at service stations to deal with integrated pump control, payment cards, epos (electronic point of sale) terminals, etc.. International standards IFSF the U.S., Europe and around the world reap significant cost savings by implementing network devices based on open standards systems. New devices, such as car ID, may make use of existing standards IFSF. Simple IFSF design and engineering means less testing. Unified system architecture simplifies applications and interfaces. Evolution of standards IFSF avoids sudden aging. IFSF is completely compatible with TCP/IP. By Open Systems-based technologies restrictions are avoided in any particular platform or equipment manufacturer. This enables reducing to a minimum the cost of installation and maintenance. In the absence of an approach based on common standards, petrol retailers may choose to use equipment and systems from one or multiple vendors. Both approaches have serious shortcomings. Since the hierarchical architecture is not the optimal control solution due to its complexity, this work explores a computer system designed to sell liquid fuels, gas and other goods at gas and petrol stations, a system based on the international IFSF standard, and which aims to improve the data transmission speed between the different network platforms. In many cases, these platforms are not synchronized, not interconnected, and do not support unified communication standards. It is necessary to build an open, interoperable system connecting different devices into a single network, so that they can exchange data and instructions. Therefore, a peer-to-peer network has been used where the network controller could be eliminated without loss of functionality. An open standard has been provided, and also free choice for add-ons` modifications, implementation of new features, and maintenance.
