SeQent Announces the Availability of its NEW Wi-Fi Messenger Solution

London, ON – March 16, 2015 – SeQent the leading provider of innovative Real‑Time Wireless Alarm & Event Notification and ANDON-Industrial Digital Signage solutions is announcing the BETA release of the Wi-Fi Messenger family of products. This product addresses a need in the marketplace for a reliable, text messaging solution based on Wi-Fi infrastructure and commodity Android, IOS and Windows smartphones, with no reliance on the internet, cloud or carrier coverage.
Wi-Fi Messenger (WFM) is a self-contained text messaging system consisting of a software server providing a standard IETF SNPP input for message transactions, and handset applications for message delivery and management. With completely autonomous operation, handsets connected to the facility’s Wi-Fi infrastructure receive messages without a public carrier network. One (1) Wi-Fi Messenger Server can accept inputs from any number of SNPP clients simultaneously and host 2500 handsets.

When paired with a FirstPAGE Server, the Wi-Fi Messenger (WFM) 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 re-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.

“SeQent’s customers, having experienced many issues with the use of carrier hosted mobile phones for automated messaging, were looking for a self-contained solution eliminating the reliance on carrier coverage or Internet connectivity. This solution needed to be internally hosted and not rely on any outside infrastructure for message delivery. Wi-Fi Messenger provides this solution using internal Wi-Fi access points, a local server and traditional smartphones.” Says Scott Burns, SeQent’s Chief Technology Officer.

Several large manufacturers, including a domestic automotive OEM have committed to piloting this BETA solution in a plant that is already using the FirstPAGE and FirstPAGE Alarm Manager family of products. The stated objective is to expand upon the data interoperability with their Motorola MOTOTRBO™ digital two-way radio system and a smartphone (i.e., the NEW Motorola LEX L10 device).
