Systems that are used in plant and industrial
automation to monitor and manage automated
processes are commonly referred to as Supervisory
Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.
PageMate has been providing robust and reliable
electronic messaging support for SCADA systems for
more than twenty years. Some industry-leading
SCADA systems manufacturers now provide
integrated support for PageMate in their distributed
control systems products.
PageMate architecture was designed from the ground
up specifically to serve the unique requirements of
automated systems that can impose variable and unpredictable demands on message volume. The distributed nature of
SCADA systems requires a client-server architecture that supports operation in heterogeneous networks. Robust and reliable
message delivery with support for self-monitoring, automated fail-over and audit trail are
sine qua non
systems that automate, control and support the operation of bet-your-business processes. PageMate has incorporated these
criteria and characteristics in software architecture since its inception.
As electronic messaging and communications technologies have evolved, PageMate has grown from a simple one-way tone-
and-text paging utility to a two-way message delivery and tracking agent with support for interactive web access and more
than a dozen protocols in worldwide markets. The most recent addition to PageMate's protocol menu is MOTOTRBO Text
Messaging Protocol, providing support for message dispatch to two-way portable radios supporting both voice and text using
TDMA technology in narrowband radio environments.
