Protogate History

Until January, 2000, a company called Simpact designed, manufactured, and marketed data communications servers that link IP networks to legacy and specialty WANs. With over 25 years of experience and more than 10,000 installations worldwide, Simpact was the leading supplier of legacy and specialty protocol solutions for mission-critical applications.

Protogate is a descendent of Simpact, sharing many of the same employees and customers. We at Protogate are committed to continuing to develop hardware and software to satisfy all data-transport needs. Most of us were long-time employees of Simpact, and have in-depth knowledge of Simpact's products. Together we provide Protogate with expertise in every product which was being supported by Simpact, as well as in the products we've developed since Simpact closed.

Protogate's customers cover a wide range of Fortune 1000 companies, including financial data service providers, banks, telcoms, airlines, and utilities. We also supply government agencies and military organizations throughout the world.

Protogate Products

Freeway Data Communications Servers
The Freeway line of programmable data communications servers provide multiprotocol WAN-to-LAN connectivity. Freeway servers interface with a broad range of computer platforms including IBM, NT, DEC, HP and Sun systems. When used with Protogate's Message Switch software, Freeways can provide a smooth, phased migration path from serial-line WAN data transport to IP data transport.

ICP Boards
Protogate's intelligent communications processor boards (ICPs) provide high-speed real-time data communications. ICP boards are the component of our Freeway servers which perform the low-level serial-protocol data handling.

Protogate's engineers have developed the industry's most extensive library of legacy and specialty protocols, to satisfy many LAN-to-WAN networking needs. Our library contains over 100 protocols, which cover every major industry, including financial data services, transportation, manufacturing, utilities, government, and the military.

Training Classes
Protogate offers training classes, either at your site or at our company offices in San Diego, to instruct your engineers how to use our products. These classes cover everything from how to retrieve WAN data from a Freeway, to how to implement your own custom serial protocol.

Professional Services

Protogate offers a complete line of professional services including project development, installation, and ongoing maintenance. Protogate Engineering Services also provides custom, turnkey networking solutions. We specialize in writing custom applications which run on our Freeway to provide specialized data communication handling (store-and-forward message services, cataloging, re-formatting, traffic accounting, etc.). If you have special needs, please contact us for more information; we'll be happy to talk to you about your requirements.
