The Prism IP Message Gateway (IPMG) is the central control point of a system. All calls, messages, alarms and notifications are processed by the Prism IPMG and logged. The IPMG manages a paging network from the message input using telephone and data lines to the output to one or more paging transmitters. The IPMG is a modular design allowing you to choose which paging and message handling functions you need.

The IPMG now features direct VoIP telephone access for the ultimate in commercial and private Radio Paging systems. Using network based direct calling to the "SIP" enabled IPMG reduces telephone interface costs and provides calling from virtually anywhere using VoIP.

The IPMG allows companies using a VoIP capable PBX to bypass the PSTN giving your users virtual access. Connect medical and industrial remote monitoring equipment using TAP, TNPP and plain text data to the IPMG using Prism Inet, the new IP interface for industry standard message input protocols. With built-in IVR/Voicemail, text messaging to pagers and phones, email copy of messages and all the popular paging signaling formats makes the IPMG the ultimate for centralized messaging.

The IPMG is designed to accept text messages using various protocols such as TNPP, Email (SMTP), SNPP and Computer Interface (CIF) connections over Ethernet and serial ports. Messages are routed out according to instructions in the User Database. The messages can be sent as Numeric (digits only) and Alphanumeric (text message) to your own paging transmitters or to other paging networks. Messages can also be sent to Email addresses or SMTP destinations for display on cell phones or Wi-Fi phones.

The IPMG manages multiple functions such as

    Telephone Interface

  • SIP software supports direct VoIP calls from public or private VoIP service providers.
  • Using 3rd party SIP trunking can replace expensive telephone circuits and expand the calling area without long distance charges.
  • Commercial paging service providers can now offer a direct low cost connection between the customers VoIP capable PBX and the commercial paging system IPMG.
  • Convert existing Analog trunks, POTS lines, T1 or E1 digital circuits to VoIP/SIP with the Prism SIP Gateway.
  • By routing calls over a network connection you locate the interface at your site or at a remote site for even more cost savings.
  • Database Features

  • Database supports from 100 to over 1 million users based on type of message input.
  • User numbers may be from 1 to 10 digits in length and is expandable for special or international applications.
