An undocumented benefit is the fact that D2D2T's inherent storage
software offloads work, makes regulatory compliance automatic and simplifies life for what is usually an understaffed, over-taxed IT staff.
Others have installed automated gates and dams in their large-diameter pipelines to take advantage of the inherent storage
capacity of their combined sewer collection to help them meet the 1994 EPA CSO regulations.
With its distributed intelligence architecture, the Avid Unity ISIS system has no inherent storage
or connectivity limitations and avoids bottlenecks that can occur in storage systems that use centralized intelligence.
Convergence is possible because any communication channel has an inherent storage
capacity (bandwidth times latency) and, conversely, any storage device has inherent communications channel characteristics (capacity divided by access time).
