How does LYNX fit into Series25?
LYNX allows your student information system and other Series25 tools to share and appropriately update class section data. The Interface keeps the section data you are processing synchronized between your local database and your hosted Series25 database located on CollegeNET servers. LYNX also seamlessly delivers data to the Series25 Optimizer. LYNX is a significant upgrade that brings all your data together.
Minimal Presence With No Maintenance
The minimal LYNX-APP, a lightweight Java service, is the only installed presence for LYNX on your local server. Its primary job is to detect changes and move data, not to process it. LYNX exports raw, complete section data from the SIS to Series25 servers and only posts new location assignments back to the SIS. The result is highly efficient performance that requires no maintenance from your institution's IT staff.
If You’re Not Using LYNX Yet
The Interface is designed to move and track data between multiple SIS types and can also accommodate multiple 25Live instances. So, whether you're established with your current SIS, transitioning from one SIS to another, or sharing SIS data with multiple 25Live campuses, LYNX can easily accommodate your institution.

If you aren’t using LYNX, we strongly recommend you talk to your Account Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) about upgrading to start experiencing the benefits.
