Motorola radio digital paging system

Union Gas Limited is a major Canadian natural gas utility which provides energy delivery and related services to more than one million residential, commercial and industrial countries in over 400 communities in northern, southwestern and eastern Ontario.

Union Gas operates a wide-area Motorola digital paging system for dispatching repair crews. The paging system uses synchronous HDLC data links between the central (hub) location and the pager transmitters. Kelcom, a southern Ontario-based radio connectivity company, employed The Software Group's SyncSwitch to provide IP-based WAN infrastructure for the Union Gas paging network. By converting the hub-and-spoke HDLC leased line network to an IP-based WAN using SyncSwitch, Union Gas captures significant operational savings over the predecessor leased line network.
