Wi-Fi Messenger

SeQent’s Wi-Fi Messenger (WFM) is an On Premise Wi-Fi SMS messaging system consisting of a software server providing a standard IETF SNPP input for message transactions, and handset applications for message composition, delivery and management. Supporting completely autonomous operation, handsets connected to the facility’s self-contained Wi-Fi have messages delivered without a mobile carrier network. One Wi-Fi Messenger Server can accept inputs from any number of SNPP clients simultaneously and support hundreds of handsets. 

When paired with a FirstPAGE Server the Wi-Fi Messenger solution can automatically forward messages sent to devices not currently registered with the local Wi-Fi to a public carrier’s SMS network or any destination FirstPAGE Server supports. This automatic routing occurs when the device leaves the Wi-Fi network and is automatically disabled when the device returns to Wi-Fi connectivity. For devices with VPN access to the facility network WFM delivery can occur over carrier data networks as well. 

Starting with the Wi-Fi Messenger Server as the base component, add a license pack for the number of devices to be connected, and the client applications for the device types to be used. Combining these components an autonomous communications network can be built off of an internal Wi-Fi network. Adding FirstPAGE automatic fail over to carrier based SMS delivery is possible for devices leaving the Wi-Fi coverage and roaming onto a carrier network. The addition of FirstPAGE Alarm Manager enables alarm delivery in a few seconds when devices are within Wi-Fi coverage and notification via SMS when offsite.

Monitoring device connectivity the server will automatically re-route messages to a carrier delivery path in the event the device is not registered on the local network. Devices returning to local network connectivity are automatically switched back from carrier to  Wi-Fi delivery.
