Messages can be sent to pagers, cell phones or other
devices any number of ways. We've detailed some of the
more common ways below.
NotePager Pro - standalone messaging
Messages are created on a computer and
then can be sent to mobile phones or pagers.
1.) An individual, group or multiple
recipients are selected from a list. The message is
then sent to the mobile phone, sms device or pagers.
2.) The SMS or text messages can
be sent via the Internet to the paging or wireless carrier.
There are two new protocols SNPP and WCTP which are
supported by many of the larger carriers. If your carrier
supports these protocols this is probably the easiest
way to send messages! Check the list to see if you carrier
supports them! SNPP
Support or WCTP
3.) If you have a traditional modem,
messages can be sent by dialing out and connecting to
the modem at the paging terminal. The software will
then send the message in a format that the terminal
understands. The terminal then broadcasts the message
to the appropriate wireless device.
4.) In many cases messages can
also be sent to the paging carrier via email. This is
the least reliable delivery method. The SMTP email protocol
was not designed for paging or "instant" delivery,
depending on the routing of the email there can be significant
time delays. If you are using messaging for critical
applications we would encourage you to utilize one of
the other delivery methods.

WEB INTERFACE - WEB PAGES
Text or SMS messages can be easily sent from Internet
or intranet web pages. Web pages can be created to include
drop downlists of users or groups, or if you prefer
each mobile device can have its own personalized web
COMMANDLINE/ ASCII INTERFACE - COMMANDLINE &
SMS or text messages can be sent from a commandline
or by scanning a predetermined file for text messages.
This interface is commonly used to add a level of notification
to existing applications.
Text or SMS Messages can be initiated by monitoring
a serial port. The message can then be forwarded to
mobile devices. This interface is frequently used to
add a layer of wireless notification to alarm systems
or legacy building control systems.
Messages that come into the engine via the TAP interface
can be redistributed to other devices. (TAP is the protocol
used to dial out via modem to the terminal).
Email messages or notification of newly received
email messages can be easily forwarded to pagers, cell
phones, SMS devices or other wireless devices.
