You can configure one or more pagers as destinations for event messages from older network engines. Newer network engines that run a Linux operating system do not support pagers. The Pager DDA supports standard TAP.
For information on how to configure a pager destination, see Configuring Destination Delivery Agents (DDAs). For additional information, see the following:
Configuring Event Message Format to configure how the event message appears at the pager destinationNote: The event message format for pagers is very brief to conform to pager space limitations.
Occasionally, a pager message may contain extraneous junk characters. These characters may come from the paging service, appear as a result of interference, or appear when the pager battery is low. Often, cycling power to the modem and waiting for 10 seconds, or disconnecting the modem then reconnecting may solve the issue.
