My network has monitoring software (Whats Up Gold) that sends out alphanumeric alerts to Skytel pagers via TAP ("telelocator alphanumeric paging"). whenever something critical throws an alert. We've been doing it this way for years - circumventing traditional email - just in case email ever went down, those pages would never make it out.
Now we're looking into BES and Blackberry in general, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience or any pointers in using TAP to send messages to a Blackberry device. I found a document on Blackberry.com called the Paging User Guide (located here: http://tinyurl.com/4g3mq
) that speaks of using TAP on the second page, but I've been unable to get it to work.
If anyone has any experience with this, I'd be welcome to hear it.
