How PageGate Recieves Messages

PageGate allows for network messaging or network wide SMS messaging through a combination of the following methods: email, webpage, commandline, textfile, Internet, serial port, modem, mobile phone, wireless modem, direct database access and windows client.

SMS or text messages can be sent to cell phones, mobile phones, wireless devices, pagers, billboards, etc....

PageGate is a flexible powerful way to take control of corporate communications.

PageGate can be installed to run on a single non-dedicated workstation, or using its modular architecture, PageGate can actually be installed across a dozen or more computers for a truly high-performance messaging gateway system.

PageGate SMS Server Engine - The messaging engine takes input from any of the front-end modules and sends the messages to telecom service providers via modem, the Internet or email. Any number of the front-end modules can be used simultaneously. Licenses are required for the number of recipients setup in the messaging / SMS server. The messaging engine can run on an existing file or web server, or can be run on a separate workstation or server.

Inbound Messages - ways that PageGate can accept incoming messages:

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

This is an excellent front-end used by itself, or used as a tool for developers and system integrators, to allow text messaging from within applications. 16-bit and 32-bit applications (executables) that can be run on the commandline, or by other applications to submit messages to PageGate (this is a common integration method for 3rd party applications) For example, network monitoring software could send a text message to an administrator if an anomaly is detected within existing systems.
Web Server Interface - Web API
Send text messages via webpages. PA CGI application that allows users to dispatch messages from a webpage on your webserver. PageGate's web interface supports many types of web pages including single, group, mulitpage, 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 Interface - 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 existing mail servers.
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 a printer, and extract out message information from that data.
GUI Interface
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.
TAP-in Interface - TAP-in API
Messages can be accepted via modem or direct serial connection, using the standard TAP messaging protocol. The GetTap interface accepts these messages over a serial connection that is usually connected to a modem. The TAP protocol is the most widely used text messaging protocol for serial and dialup connections. 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). Also PageGate can act as a messaging gateway for TAP clients, simplifying setup, logging and providing a single connection for sending messages to a wide variety of carriers.
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 commandline/ASCII interface)
Touchtone Receiver Interface - Touchtone API
A voicemodem can be used to accept messages sent from a touch-tone phone, and convert them to textual messages.

Example: sending the touchtones '1#3' might mean send canned message 1 to group 3.
(requires commandline/ASCII interface)
PageGate's 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. Multiple TAP2ASCII modules can be run on the same computer as PageGate, enabling PageGate to simultaneously accept messages from multiple inbound TAP connections.
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)

How PageGate Sends Messages

PageGate is a Wireless-messaging/SMS gateway. It can accept messages from one or more different sources, and is then able to deliver those messages to wireless devices via one or more industry standard communication methods.

For example, in a simple configuration PageGate can accept messages from a dispatcher, who manually enters messages into PageGate's Windows GUI Client application, and PageGate can then send those messages to mobile phones or wireless devices via the wireless provider's network.

In a more complicated example, PageGate can be simultaneously accepting hundreds of messages from multiple sources such as email, webpages, analog modems, manual dispatchers, integration with other applications, etc., while also delivering them with up to sixteen concurrent outbound communication sessions.

Outbound Messages - ways that PageGate can deliver outbound messages:

Telocator Alphanumeric Protocol - The standard message delivery protocol for analog modem, or direct serial communications to wireless providers.
Simple Network Paging Protocol - A standard message delivery protocol for Internet communications to a wireless provider.
Wireless Communication Transfer Protocol - A standard message delivery for Internet communications to a wireless provider (both HTTP and HTTPS are supported).
Simple Mail Transport Protocol - An email protocol used by many wireless providers.
Universal Computer Protocol - A delivery protocol for analog modem, or direct serial communications to a wireless provider.
Global System for Mobile communication AT Command Set - A method used to communicate with a directly connected mobile phone or wireless modem for end-to-end wireless message delivery.
DTMF (Dual Tone Multi-Frequency) - A way to deliver touch tone messages to older numeric-only pagers and similar equipment.
Facsimile Machines - Message delivery to destination Fax machines via faxmodem.
Raw Serial
Transmission of message text over a standard serial port (direct connect or via modem).
Transmission of message text to a host via a TCP/IP connection.
Supports both GET and POST for outbound messages for delivery.
Additional Connectors (formerly called dialers)
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.
