to Interpage's Self-Dispatch and Touch Tone Gateway Services Overview page

[ Back to Main | Overview | TAP/IXO Self-Dispatch | Touch Tone/DTMF Numeric Dispatch | WebAlert | Signup Form | Contacts ]
Messages dispatched to Interpage via TAP/IXO or Touch Tone/DTMF can be distributed by the Interpage Scheduler (for a demo, log in as guest and leave the password blank), which allows customers to have their TAP and/or Touch Tone messages sent to a variety of end devices, such as pagers, cellphones, fax, Text to Speech, and/or email addresses.
TAP/IXO Gateway: Use your modem or server with TAP or IXO protocol software to dispatch pages, e-mails, fax messages, and/or voice messages to one or more recipients. Emergency response departments, 24 hour "on-call" personnel, and other services which require an alternate to Internet access via dialup may benefit from Interpage's TAP/IXO Gateway to facilitate the dissemination of time-critical messages when Internet connectivity is down or otherwise inoperative.Touch Tone / DTMF Access
TAP Self-Dispatch recipients may be email addresses, Cellphones, Alpha and Numeric pagers, international mobile phones, and even POTS (voice) telephones and cellphones which lack text-messaging capabilities via the OutVoice text-to-speech notification service. The Interpage TAP/IXO Gateway is configurable from the Web and/or Telnet, and messages may be redirected instantly via any Interpage delivery method.
A demonstration of the Web-based "scheduler" is available here; please log in as guest and leave the password blank. You may also connect via telnet to interpage.net, log in as guest, and select option 6 from the main menu.
TAP/IXO Gateway access costs $50 per month, with a one-time $50 set-up fee. 10,000 messages per month are included, after which each additional message is billed at 2 cents.
A Numeric page to email, fax, mobile phone, sms, pager and voice gateway service is also available. The numeric pager gateway is a variant of the DirectPage(sm) service, whereby an individual caller, operator, automated voicemail system, or any other device or system which dials out via Touch Tones (DTMF) may dial into Interpage's DirectPage Numeric Interface, enter a unique PIN to identify the desired account, and then a numeric, alpha, or pre-programmed message, which will in turn be delivered to one or more e-mails and/or destination devices (such as cellphones, pagers, fax machines, or using text-to-speech voice synthesis via the OutVoice service).WebAlert Service
As with the TAP/IXO Gateway service (above), scheduling "where" and "when" received Touch Tone pages go is entirely controlled by the Scheduler Web-based interface (log in as guest and leave the password field blank) or via telnet access. Customers may "schedule" when received pages are sent out, to whom, and via what mechaism directly from the schedule page, with any changes taking effect immediately.
The Numeric Paging/DTMF to E-Mail Gateway costs $50 per month, with a one-time $50 set-up fee. 10,000 messages per month are included, after which each additional message is billed at 2 cents. Single-User plans start at $10 per month and are discussed on the DirectPage service page.
Integration of Modem, TAP/IXO, Touch-Tone, PIN-based and/or Web Submissions with an Interpage-hosted database of notification destinations. WebAlert integrates a variety of legacy equipment, such as voicemail systems, paging terminals, numeric and alpha paging systems, Operator-Dispatch services and other similar equipment and systems under a single, web-based interface. Incoming dispatches from any of the above sources may be ordered, screened, prioritized and ultimately sent to one or more destinations based on the extant WebAlert settings. By having all messages sent to the Interpage WebAlert service, continued remote/manual adjustments of equipment when a given recipient changes is no longer needed -- all notification equipent can be set to contact the Interpage Web-Alert server via DTMF/Touch Tone, Modem, TAP/IXO, HTTP (Web), and/or SMTP (Email) and incoming connections from remote sites can be processd and altered through the WebAlert interface, eliminating the need to manually change all remote equipment when a given notification regime changes. WebAlert also makes it easy to add alternate "on-call" personnel or responders via a unified web-based interface instead of processing manual changes at each office or piece of equipment which sends out alert messages.
