EtherPage is a wireless middleware solution which allows a wide range of applications including help desks, database management systems (DBMS), network monitoring tools, and hundreds of others to send wireless alerts to pagers and cell phones. Key features of the product:

  • Extremely reliable delivery and support for high-volume messaging. Etherpage can support thousands of devices. Field proven to handle millions of messages per month.

  • Web interface which supports EtherPage configuration, submittal of messages, and status monitoring which can be accessed from any host on the network.
  • Redundant server support allowing for multiple parallel EtherPage servers to insure 100% uptime.
