PageGate Inbound

PageGate SMS Server Engine - The PageGate text messaging engine accepts messages in a variety of different ways. The following are different interface options for accepting messages into PageGate.

PageGate is modular and scaleable any single interface or combination of interfaces can be used. 

Ways that PageGate can accept incoming messages:

Command Line / ASCII Interface - GetAPI - Text API

Messages are sent to the PageGate Text Messaging Engine via a single command issued at the DOS prompt. Command line commands may also be issued from within windows or from within many 'canned' and custom applications. In addition, the Command Line / ASCII can scan one or more directories (networked or local) for text files (ASCII files) containing messages. PageGate can also 'watch' one or more files and folders for new text files, that contain messages (this is a common integration method for 3rd party applications)

Filter Pack*

The PageGate Filter Pack is used in conjunction with the Command Line ASCII Interface, enabling PageGate to pass all messages through a customizable filter. This gives PageGate the power to completely reformat the contents of, or extract data from the original message text.

*requires Command Line / ASCII Interface

Serial2ASCII Interface*

The Serial2ASCII interface is a companion module for GetSerial and unlocks the ability to monitor additional physical or virtual serial (RS232) ports.

*requires Command Line / ASCII Interface

Web Server Interface - Web API

Send text messages via web pages. The CGI application allows users to dispatch messages from a web page on your web server. PageGate's web interface supports many types of web pages including single, group, multipage, drop down lists and adhoc type web pages. This interface uses a CGI script to allow any Windows based web server to accept information entered on a web page and send it to the Text Messaging Engine.

Email (SMTP) Interface - GetEmail - Email API

Full support for SMTP and POP3 protocols for accepting and collecting email messages. Receives incoming email into the PageGate Messaging Engine. Received mail messages can also be forwarded to additional email accounts. This front-end includes a fully functional mail server and may be used by itself or in conjunction with other mail servers.

TAP over TCP/IP Server Module*

The TAP Over TCP/IP Module allows PageGate to receive messages via the TAP protocol by TCP request instead of a serial port or a modem connection.

*requires Command Line / ASCII Interface

Serial Interface - Serial API

Enables PageGate to monitor a serial connection for data. This interface is often used to accept text that would normally be sent to an alarm system, alarm panel or printer, and extract message information from that data.

GUI Client Interface - Windows Client

A simple to use Windows program for manually dispatching messages. It has many advanced features such as preset messages and recipients, scheduling, logging, reports, etc.

TAP2ASCII Interface*

The TAP2ASCII module accepts inbound TAP connections via a modem or a direct serial connection. Each message is accepted and saved in an ASCII text file, in a format compatible with PageGate's GetASCII interface.

*requires Command Line / ASCII Interface

TAP Interface - TAP API

Messages can be accepted via modem or direct serial connection, using the standard TAP messaging protocol. The GetTap interface enables PageGate to accept in text messages from many sources, and then re-dispatch the messages back out (possibly to different recipients or groups).

SNPP Server Module - SNPP API*

Messages can be accepted over the Internet using the standard SNPP messaging protocol, which then can be resent using any of the various protocols.

*requires Command Line / ASCII Interface

Touch tone Receiver Interface - Touch tone API*

A voicemodem can be used to accept messages sent from a touch-tone phone, and convert them to textual messages.

*requires Command Line / ASCII Interface

Additional Connectors

For installations that need a high message throughput or a level of redundancy, PageGate supports up to 16 concurrent dialers. Connectors have been expanded to include direct connects to telecom or paging terminals and Internet connections for sending messages via SMTP, SNPP or WCTP. This will allow the PageGate Messaging Engine to simultaneously dial out to more than one carrier at a time, or to make multiple connections simultaneously to the same or different carriers. Dialers can also be used to connect directly telecom terminals via a serial cable connection.

Direct Database Integration

New messages can be written directly to PageGate's industry standard MS Access compatible database (this is a common integration method for 3rd party applications)
