WITS signal stands for Wellsite Information Transfer Specification, I would like to utilize this signal in an algorithm we have written in MATLAB. Is there a way MATLAB can run the algorithm involving WITS signal?

The Kepserver (https://www.kepware.com/en-us/products/kepserverex/drivers/wits-level-0-active/) does support this protocol.
The WITS suite is responsible for transferring Wellsight data to HMI, SCADA and OPC Clients. Within the WITS suite, there exists two drivers, viz. WITS Level 0 Active and WITS level 1 Active drivers.
The WITS Level 0 Passive Driver is used in conjunction with Kepserver to transfer the Wellsight data to an OPC Client. The MATLAB OPC Toolbox provides OPC client functionality and can read data from OPC servers.
So yes, one can use Matlab OPC Toolbox to create an OPC Client, use that OPC Client to connect to a server which supports one of the drivers within the WITS suite, and access the data stored on the server. The data being the Welllsite Data.
