04/29/2019 How Mobile Technology Is Fighting the Spread of Disease

Mobile technology is not new to health developments--cell phones have been put to task in an impressive range of technologies to improve public health. An important and relevant instance of this approach is the use of texting to address disease epidemics. This happens in a great variety of ways, including using SMS and related mobile technology to track diseases, and to encourage patients and doctors to take protective measures against rapidly spreading diseases.

A powerful example is Alerta DISAMAR, a project under the United Nations-Vodafone Foundation that uses text messaging to track the spread of infectious diseases as well as to create a valuable store of information for epidemiologists. Alerta DISAMAR was first conceived in 2001 following the death of two sailors in Peru from malaria, leading the navy to seek a way to stave off further harm.

04/19/2019 Send Alerts from Network Monitoring Software

When a failure is detected in a business' or companys network infrastructure, it is important that the network administrator (or others) are aware of the problem. The easiest way to do this is to send text message notification(s).

While many network monitoring applications have the ability to inherently send email notifications, if the network failure impacts the email system, the alert will not be sent. In order to ensure that alerts are sent and received, we recommend using a 3rd party solution like PageGate along with cellular hardware to send the notifications wirelessly. That way if there is an issue with the network infrastructure the notifications will still be sent and received.

With the release of PageGates filter pack, its possible to format messages completely differently for recipients and groups that need it. Often times, when you use a third party message aggregator like Active911, I Am Responding, Infobip, Clickatel, The Fire Horn and similar, those services need messages formatted in a very specific and static way. Due to their message parsing requirements, most will need the same number of fields in the same exact position for every message sent.

03/25/2019 Can Text Messaging Help Protect Your Kids from the Flu?

Are your kids getting their flu vaccines this year? Text messaging may be offering a simple new way to make sure the answer to that question is "yes."

For children between the ages of six months and eight years, the flu vaccine must be administered in two doses delivered at least 28 days apart; the first vaccine primes the child's young immune system, and the second strives to offer immunity to the year's upcoming flu virus. Should a child miss one of these doses, they will not have full immunity to the illness.

Having reliable, redundant and failover methods of delivery can make all the difference in crisis situations.
