Innovative Business Software, a major supplier of central station automation software, has earned the first-ever UL certification for a cloud-based monitoring product. The DMP SCS-VR virtual receiver was a key component in developing this new approach to central station automation. Using the SCS-VR, SBN Cloud allows central stations of all sizes to provide monitoring services without the cost of installing, maintaining and operating the infrastructure required to respond to alarm signals. The SCS-VR manages all network and cellular alarm signals, supervision and substitution messages, with the capacity to monitor up to 20,000 panels. Users can select one of five standard software options, from 500 to 20,000 panels, but the number of panels is actually unlimited. The service is hosted on triple redundant infrastructure in two U.S.-based data centers more than 1,000 miles apart. Both have been approved for U.S. government contracts and audited to the NIST 800-53 standard.
