UCP Advanced Settings

Failover is the ability of PageGate to send an undeliverable message to an alternate host. For example, some carriers support multiple UCP terminals. Other carriers support both SNPP and WCTP hosts. If you configure multiple UCP 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 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.


If the receiving UCP system requires authentication credentials, enter them in this field.

Msg Limit

This field determines the number of messages that can be negotiated with the receiving UCP system in one session. Most UCP terminals can receive up to 25 messages in a single transmission but set this value appropriate to what the receiving system supports.

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).

Pulse Dial

If you need to use pulse dialing instead of tone dialing, check this option.
