SkyWave, ILS team to offer SCADA integration

The companies will pair up SkyWave's IsatData Pro satellite network and ILS Technology's deviceWISE M2M Platform

SkyWave Mobile Communications, a provider of wireless data communications for the machine-to-machine (M2M) market, along with ILS Technology will pair up SkyWave's IsatData Pro satellite network and ILS Technology's deviceWISE M2M Platform.

The combined experience and expertise of the two companies enables the oil & gas, power utilities and industrial automation sectors to implement SCADA applications.

The joint technology collaboration will focus on efforts targeting the SCADA market that will enable intelligent, reliable and secure connectivity from remote field assets to enterprise applications (i.e. SCADA, MES, MRO, CRM) in an integrated tool set.

The initiative enables process and business decisions based on real-time data not limited to wire line or cellular communication with the reliable, secure, plug-and -play satellite option. Graphical design tools provide click-to-configure capabilities to integrate applications with no coding required. The joint technology provides primary or back-up connectivity for new or existing implementations.

SkyWave's IsatData Pro is used across the utility industry in telematics applications. Applications include the remote monitoring of process equipment such as measuring critical field parameters for pressure, flow rate and temperature, etc.

ILS Technology's deviceWISE M2M Platform helps customers transform raw data into actionable events that can be bi-directionally exchanged with applications without any added infrastructure or programming. ILS Technology brings its programmable logic controller (PLC) drivers and enterprise connectors for vendors such as SAP, IBM and Oracle.
