09/04/2019 Text Messaging Can Help Weight Loss, Study Says

In a pioneering study published in Computers, Informatics, and Nursing in 2013, text messaging was isolated and tested as a weight loss tool: the small study divided 28 overweight and obese adults in a community-based weight loss program in the Richmond area into control and experimental groups. The experimental group received text messages tailored to aid in the weight loss process twice per week throughout the 12 week duration of the study.

09/02/2019 Did you know PageGate Can be Used Without Carrier Specific Information?

NotePage, Inc. is pleased to announce our PageGate software can now utilize a new carrier lookup service called Data24-7. Data24-7 is a carrier lookup service, which means you don't have to know the carrier of the cell phone numbers you would like PageGate to send messages to. With this service, PageGate can perform on the fly lookups of your cell phone numbers, matching them against the carrier list provided by Data24-7.

Additionally if you are using PageGate with cellular hardware you do not need to know the carrier associated with each number you are sending messages to!

08/30/2019 How Message Volume Impacts Cellular Hardware

Cellular hardware is, by far, the fastest and most reliable method of sending SMS with PageGate. However, the hardware itself has its own limitations on how fast it can push the traffic to the outside world.

Typically speaking, cellular hardware will be able to accept one message for delivery every 2 or 3 seconds, which means that the upper delivery rate on most cellular hardware is between 20 and 30 messages per minute. If you try to push more traffic than the device is capable of handling, you'll receive a CMS Error 500 indicating that the device has been overloaded and that can cause message delivery headaches like missed messages.

08/26/2019 When Crisis Strikes

We have all seen the tragedies that have struck a little too close to home. Be they humans doing or the acts of mother nature, they are jarring at best, in part because they so often feel as though they are beyond our control. While we certainly can't prevent all tragedies, or even predict them, the way we react to such events can be powerfully influential. When crisis strikes, here are some things you can do to help yourself and those around you:

08/21/2019 The Advent of Access: How Smart Phones Have Changed the World

With the ongoing move of smart phones towards near-ubiquity, much of society has come to take these do-all devices for granted. In overcoming the novelty of smart phones, many of us have lost our one-time sense of awe at this technology, and have ceased marveling at the effect it has had on the world around us. However, it is undeniable that smart phones have exerted a huge and multi-faceted impact on society, and continue to do so to this day.

More significantly than GPS tracking your run or making waiting in line a little more bearable, smart phones have virtually changed our society's concept of access, making information available to smart phone users at almost any time and any place.

08/16/2019 Send Text and SMS Messages through Verizon EMAG

PageGate supports sending messages through Verizons Enterprise Messaging Access Gateway (EMAG).

When registering on EMAG, we recommend registering for the WCTP, SNPP and SMTP API's. Registering for all three allows you to configure a failover system where PageGate can use WCTP to deliver via HTTPS as a primary method of delivery, then fail over to the point-to-point SNPP host is something goes wrong. If a negotiation with the SNPP host can't be made, it can then fail over to deliver via email/SMTP.

08/12/2019 Why SMTP Messages Fail

A brief look at greylists and blacklists
The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is the most commonly used internet based protocol for third party SMS delivery. Almost every major carrier in the US and Canada supports this protocol and, as a result, this is the most heavily used protocol. The down side to this protocol is that it is effectively Email, which means that there are a lot of issues that can arise from using it.

Why SMTP Messages Fail


08/09/2019 Did you know that the Filter Pack can be used to Reformat Messages?

With the release of PageGate's filter pack, it's 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.

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.
