Radio paging remains the right solution in many tech stacks.

Paging overcomes environmental or operational issues with on-site and across-site communications. From encrypted networks connecting hospitals across a city to antenna systems within a single building, Ikonix Technology delivers results using Ikonix Encode.

Ikonix Encode, underpinning modern paging.

Built from the ground up to modernise a well-known technology, Ikonix Encode offers key advantages to legacy radio paging systems. It's designed to meet increasing operational needs by improving delivery times while also better managing broadcast traffic.

  • Increased network availability with built-in congestion control.
  • Automatic re-broadcasting ensuring paging messages go to air.
  • Faster message delivery by matching message lengths to pager capability.
  • Critical Code calls delivered measurably faster.
  • Reliable operation through superior uptime.

Encode is relied on by major health and emergency service organisations across Australia.

Integrating seamlessly with Ikonix Messenger.

Building on the foundation laid by our Message Integration Engine, Ikonix Encode allows organisations to deploy radio paging connections. Encode is the software-defined integration point between the MIE and the antenna network. The solution scales up to operate site-specific paging, such as within a hospital, all the way up to a city- or even state-wide paging communication network with a constellation of transmission sites across vast areas.

Ikonix Encode is the functional integration layer that enables the NT's territory-wide network for NTPFES (read more here). These critical community resources depend on Ikonix Technology's paging expertise.

Established technology for modern communication.

Paging might be a legacy system, but it's just as vital as ever for uninterrupted communication, especially with Ikonix Technology's updated improvements. Our proprietary messaging algorithms allow for improved messaging throughput within the limited POCSAG bandwidth, as well as timely priority message delivery within 5 seconds, a vast improvement on SMS text messaging. 

Ikonix Technology can also deploy current encryption algorithms to ensure your organisation's communications remain private.

Protect your paging communications with encryption.

128-bit encryption is an industry standard cypher that protects your information to a degree that satisfies even Departments of Defence's classified data. By applying this to your paging, your messages are encrypted before broadcast, and only decipherable by approved devices. 

With sensitive information such as patient health data, it's vital that you protect your team's communications from prying eyes.

In times of excess dependency on a network, such as during a large-scale emergency, you need a communications system that guarantees message delivery. With our closed loop system, every message broadcast is also re-received and validated against the original, ensuring every message going out over the air contains its original, unaltered and complete information, rather than a corrupted version.

To further integrate paging into a modern communications stack, Ikonix Encode interfaces with TAP/PET and SMPP. 

TAP/PET is a protocol which allows pages to be generated offline and dumped quickly when connected to the paging network to decrease holding times on the system.

SMPP allows the system to interface for short message data transfer between systems, such as other gateways or sending SMS our over mobile telephone networks.

Integral to any technology solution is its capacity to be analysed and reviewed. Ikonix Encode allows organisations to extract performance and operational data. This provides paging user organisations with the complete overview of how information flows into and out of the network, to assess workflows and chokepoints in their productivity. 

With advanced routing capabilities, easy edits to the addressing of a message sent through Ikonix Encode can deliver this to specific, requested transmitters. Users sending a page at one location can issue information to another, even far-afield transmitter on the network. Using the example of our emergency services partners, paging from a metro operations centre can be routed to a specific regional location with information relevant to an incoming weather event, or other localised information.
