Enterprise Messaging System (EMS)

EMS (VOLTDS) Release Notes

Solution Overview

The SWITCHWARE Enterprise Messaging System (formerly known as VOLTDS®) is a network control and message routing software system that provides message delivery functions for the SWITCHWARE® and EZswitch® core applications allowing them to communicate with external nodes in the network including ATM’s, POS devices, switch networks and core systems. EMS also manages the overhead associated with coordinating communication requirements between the application and the external nodes. It accomplishes this using a library of device drivers, with each driver associated with a supported communication protocol.

A browser-based graphical user interface provides detailed monitoring and online information for all nodes in the network. It also provides network and application maintenance plus audit and event log review.

  • Message delivery manager
  • Strips protocol from messages
  • Supports multiple protocol types
  • Dynamic networking
