Editing a Carrier

Top Previous Next


To modify an existing carrier, click on the + next to the carrier's name. By clicking on the + next to the carrier's name, it should expand three sub-sections:




Clicking on Settings will take you to a screen that looks identical to the initial carrier setup screen. You can modify the protocol and any of the carrier's options there.


Clicking on Advanced will take you to a screen where you can specify other variables. This section's layout and options will change depending on the protocol specified in the carrier.









Failover is the ability of PageGate to send an undeliverable message to an alternate host. For example, some carriers support multiple TAP terminals. Other carriers support both SNPP and WCTP hosts. If you configure multiple TAP Terminals or hosts for one carrier, you can specify a failover. The failover settings at the carrier level is used to redirect all the pending messages to another carrier when the original carrier can't be contacted.


This field will set the priority of the carrier. The priority determines the order in which messages are handled. This value may be set from 1 to 100, where 1 is the highest priority and 100 is the lowest priority.


There are some carriers that require a username to have messages successfully accepted. If the carrier requires a username, type the username in this field.


There are some carriers that require a password to have messages successfully accepted. If the carrier requires a password, type the password in this field.

Msg Limit

The message limit field specifies the number of messages than can be queued for this carrier at once. For example, if a carrier can only receive 10 messages at a time, enter 10 in this field.

Max PIN Length

This field is used to limit the number of digits accepted from a recipient's ID/PIN field for this carrier (extra digits are stripped of the beginning).

Drop non-printable characters

Certain characters such as carriage returns and some international characters cannot be read by a carrier. Check this option to have those characters automatically removed from any queued message.


This button saves any changes made to a carrier's Advanced Settings.
