Sending broadcast messages

You can send a text message to all active users on a SafeLinx Server through broadcast messages.

To send a broadcast message, click the Tasks tab and select Broadcast a massage.

You can also define a group of users to which to broadcast a message. To set up a broadcast group, right-click the organizational unit (OU) in which you want the group added, then click Add Resource > Group > Broadcast group.

The SafeLinx Server supports the broadcast features supplied by network providers Motorola RNC3000 PMR and Dataradio. When you supply a network provider-specific broadcast identifier, the SafeLinx Server sends one data packet (up to 512 characters) to that destination. For Motorola RNC3000 PMR, the broadcast identifier is a logical link identifier. For Dataradio, the broadcast identifier is a mobile radio modem identifier. You can configure your modem to accept data packets from the destination as specified by the broadcast identifier. See your network provider for more information about how to configure your modem to receive this type of broadcast.

In addition to the broadcast features supplied by specific network providers, the SafeLinx Server allows broadcasting one data packet (up to 512 characters) to each active user, and optionally to additional user IDs or existing broadcast groups. A broadcast group can consist of user IDs or a mobile network connection (MNC), which includes all devices logged in to the MNC at the time of broadcast.
