In order to support the operation of wastewater systems a system was developed which allows us to access plant data by standard mobile devices such as WAP mobile phones. This system is suited to complement the standard application of alarm and message systems based for example on SMS or pager services. This technology provides useful options for mobile remote monitoring and remote control of automated plants. This technology is particularly appropriate for the use in remote facilities where no staff is available. The technology has been implemented succesfully and shows how standard IT and Internet technologies can be utilised to support the operation of spatially distributed plants with reasonable effort. Two implementations are presented which access plant data via WAP mobile phones and via mobile pocket PCs. First application experiences are presented.
