To get Solarwinds' NPM to send SMS alerts to mobile phones, you'll want to integrate it with our program PageGate. PageGate can be configured to receive alerting notifications from the NPM, then pass those alerts to the outside world as text messages.

The steps to install PageGate can be found here:

The steps on how to integrate Solarwinds and PageGate can be found here:

If you need any help along the way, just let us know.

Hi, Okay thanks.

How do I specify recipients? Like how do I say send messages to mobile +267 76582145 for example.

I also don't understand the carriers part what are those and how do I know which carrier to use in Botswana?

Hi, okay I managed to figure out where I specify the recipients but I cant add them, when I try Recipients- Add I get the error in qoutes "At least One Carrier Must Be Created."

If I could maybe get a clear understanding of what the carrier is and how/where I could get a carrier address I should be able close this case.

Hi Aaron

I am not winning with this, i am having trouble understanding the carriers part, how to setup recipients.

Maybe I dont understand the whole carrier concept if maybe you could explain to me what a carrier is then I would be able to set that up correctly.


Because now when enabling the alerts on Solarwinds console when I get to the part where I specify who should receive this smses thats where i get stack. That field is blank and I think its because it wasn't setup properly from the PageGate Admin.
The previous videos you sent didnt really go into detail on what is required under carriers, where we supposed to specify the cellphone numbers

The Carriers in PageGate effectively tell the program how to talk to the outside world. So, for example, let tells PageGate how to talk to Verizon when a text message needs to be sent to a Verizon phone or how to talk to AT&T when an SMS needs to be sent to an AT&T phone.

So, you've mentioned you wanted to send SMS. What region of the world are you in and what carriers do your recipients use?

Hi,thanks for the response, I am in Botswana, Southern Africa Region, and assuming carriers refers to mobile network service provider we have the following network providers in Botswana.

-Orange
-Mascom
-Be Mobile

Hm... to my knowledge, the best way to send SMS to African carriers is by use of a cellular modem. A cellular modem is a device that provides a cellular connection to a system. PageGate can use this device to send (and receive) SMS messages just like a cell phone does.

Multitech's MTC-H5 and rCell 100 series are examples of these types of device

So, once you have a cellular modem, we could use that device to send SMS directly.
