How implement SMS in WhatsUP Gold
Setup instructions for sending SMS from WhatsUp Gold
In order to run this solution properly you need to meet both WhatsUp Gold's and Ozeki NG SMS Gateway's system requirements. Please make sure you meet the listed below (Figure 1).
Figure 1 - Prerequisites for WhatsUp GoldYour checklist:
|SIM Card - You can get this from your local mobile network operator.*|
|Modem - Use a Wavecom, Siemens or Multitech modem.|
|Data cable - Comes with the modem|
|Computer - Recommended: Intel P4 2.8Ghz, 4GB RAM, 100GB HDD, Windows OS|
|Ozeki NG SMS Gateway - Download it from http://www.sms- integration.com|
*The SIM card will come with a plan, that will determine how much money you will spend on each SMS.
If a problem occurs in the monitored network (e.g.: down event) WhatsUp Gold notices it. Its SMS Notification Policy-set during configuration, forwards it to Ozeki NG SMS Gateway software. It translates the report into a text message and sends it to the GSM modem attached to the PC via COM1 cable or to an IP SMS connection. Which will forwards the SMS to the SMSC of the service provider(s). Then the message is sent to the intended mobile user. This stable and fast connection is achieved by Ozeki NG SMS Gateway's superior performance (300+ SMS/second to 64+ concurrent SMSC connections). Please feel free to examine the architectural diagram below (Figure 2).
