When a failure is detected in a business or companys network infrastructure, it is important that the network administrator (or others) are aware of the problem. The easiest way to do this is to send text message notification(s).
While many network monitoring applications have the ability to inherently send email notifications, if the network failure impacts the email system, the alert will not be sent. In order to ensure that alerts are sent and received, we recommend using a 3rd party solution like PageGate along with cellular hardware to send the notifications wirelessly. That way if there is an issue with the network infrastructure the notifications will still be sent and received.
