"We see great potential in India for the OPC DataHub," said Mihir Gangoly, Managing Director of Protocol. "India is a very price-sensitive market and yet demands new technologies."

The OPC DataHub is a single tool for OPC-based process data integration. An engineer can use it to aggregate OPC servers, tunnel data across a network or the Internet, and bridge between different OPC servers. Management can configure the DataHub to access live OPC data from Excel, a web browser, or cell phone, as well as store the data in any ODBC-compliant database.

"With the OPC DataHub, connecting to multiple OPC sources and distributing the data becomes really simple," said Mr. Gangoly. "When we analyzed the OPC DataHub we realized that it would sell very well."

"Protocol is ideally positioned for the task," said Andrew Thomas, President of Cogent. "The company has the technical expertise, the marketing savvy, and an extensive distribution network all across India. We are pleased to be working with Protocol to provide our customers in India with local representation in this rapidly-expanding market."

Protocol Automation Technologies Pvt. Ltd. is a software solution house based in Bangalore, India, serving the Automation Industry with time tested quality products, services and support. For the past decade Protocol has been providing complete solutions for the industrial sector in India and the Middle East in a multitude of vertical markets.
