How to send Pages
|Top Previous Next|
PageGate can be configured to deliver messages to pagers by modem, serial or internet methods of delivery. Pagers receive their service through a local paging transmitter or from carriers like USA Mobility and American Messaging and this determines what you'll need to configure in PageGate.
On-site paging transmitters, like those made by Zetron, Glenayre and Motorola, support receiving messages via modem or serial line by the TAP protocol and PageGate supports TAP delivery by either method. For more information on how to configure either a modem or serial TAP carrier, have a look at the Creating a TAP Carrier section of the documentation. PageGate
Pagers hosted through a paging company can be messaged with any protocols the carrier supports. For example, American Messaging and USA Mobility support the SNPP, WCTP, SMTP and TAP protocols. SNPP and WCTP are more efficient and reliable than SMTP and should be implemented where possible. If you're looking for a method of message delivery that isn't reliant on your internet connection, most pager companies still support dial-in TAP terminals.
PageGate also supports sending TAP by TCP/IP as well.
