Miscellaneous Methods

Top  Previous  Next

Outside of SMS, email and paging, PageGate has the ability to communicate in other methods to a variety of sources and devices. PageGate's miscellaneous delivery methods are:

 

XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol)

This protocol allows PageGate to communicate with an XMPP server/chat system such as Jabber. Click here to access the steps to create an XMPP carrier.

 

HTTPGET

This protocol allows PageGate to pass an HTTP GET request to a web API. This is useful for sending messages to a variety of platforms, such as message aggregation services like The Fire Horn or carrier lookup services like Data24-7. Click here to access the steps to create an HTTPGET carrier.

 

HTTPPOST

This protocol allows PageGate to pass an HTTP POST request to a web API. This is useful for sending messages to a variety of platforms, such as message aggregation services like The Fire Horn or carrier lookup services like Data24-7. Click here to access the steps to create an HTTPPOST carrier.

 

FAX

This protocol allows PageGate to use a faxmodem to deliver messages to destination Fax machines. Click here to access the steps to create a FAX carrier.

 

FAXSrv

This protocol allows PageGate to pass facsimile messages to either a local or network available Microsoft fax server. Click here to access the steps to create a FAXSrv carrier.

 

RawSerial

This protocol allows PageGate to deliver messages as raw data strings over over a serial port. Click here to access the steps to create a RawSerial carrier.

 

RawTCP

This protocol allows PageGate to deliver messages by Raw TCP to a host IP. Click here to access the steps to create a RawTCP carrier.

 

File

This protocol allows PageGate to output a message as an ascii formatted file to a specified directory. This is incredibly useful when implementing the PageGate Filter Pack as it allows you to put messages through for secondary processing. This protocol also, just as an example, allows you to keep a hard record of messages that are sent from the program by keeping a copy of every message sent as a file in the specified directory.

TONE/Touch Tone/DTMF (Dual Tone Multi-Frequency)

This protocol allows PageGate to use a dial-up modem to deliver touch tones to older numeric-only pagers and similar equipment. Click here to access the steps to create a TONE carrier.

 

UCP (Universal Computer Protocol)

A delivery protocol for analog modem, or direct serial communications to a wireless provider. Click here to access the steps to create a UCP carrier.
