The Strate Gateway Service offering provides the South African financial market Participants with an alternative to send and receive ISO15022 format messages directly to and from Strate, without utilising the SWIFT network, thereby realising cost savings. This Network used is a secure and private network that uses state of the art infrastructure. At the heart of the Strate Gateway Services lies Strate's Gateway and Tracker Applications.
The Gateway application processes and routes messages to and from the required Strate target application while the Tracker application stores a copy of the messages processed by the Gateway application on a database that resides on the Strate high availability infrastructure. The messages are stored for a period of 5 years and thereafter archived. These applications were developed and are maintained by Strate's development team.
Additional functionality is periodically added to the application to satisfy the clients requirements and to enhance Strate's service offering.
