Can you trust your critical text message notifications to be delivered by your wireless carrier?

August 24, 2015 / 0 comments / in Support  / by Jacob Allred

Here is a scenario that I’ve seen crop up several times in the last few months:

A point enters the alarm state and an SMS notification has been sent, but several hours later no one has acknowledged it yet.

Administrators typically need to build safety nets to handle any communication down times so that there is no data left uncollected
