Failover is the ability of PageGate to send an undeliverable message to an alternate host. For example, let's say that you have two cellular modems. You could configure one cellular modem as the primary method of delivery, then configure a second carrier for the backup modem and configure the first carrier to fail over to the second.
Alternatively, you could configure a failover to go to a completely different method of communication. So, the program would initially try to negotiate SMS delivery with your cellular modem but if the hardware is unreachable, you can have it failover to an SMTP, WCTP, SNPP, TAP or any other delivery method instead. 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 determines this carrier's place within the priority system.


By default, all carriers have their priority value set to 100 which puts them all on equal footing. If you leave 100 as your baseline, giving a carrier a priority value lower than 100 will be considered more important with a value of 1 being the most important and a value higher than 100 will be considered less important up to the maximum value of 32000 being the least important.

Msg Limit

This field determines the number of messages that the cellular modem can handle in one block. This setting is directly effected by the make and model of cellular modem you have as different devices have different settings and limitations. Set this field to 5 for most cellular modems but if you notice that you're running in to CMS delivery errors, lower this value as appropriate.

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).
