Integrating the eG Manager with NowSMS Lite

The NowSMS Lite is a software gateway that allows sending of SMS messages using a GSM (GRPS/EDGE/3G) modem.  It allows clients to submit SMS messages for delivery via the GSM modem, using HTTP interface that supports HTTP GET method.

You can integrate the eG manager with NowSMS Lite so that:

  1. the alerts generated by the eG manager are automatically converted into SMS format and forwarded to the NowSMS server through a HTTP interface;
  2. The SMS alerts received by the NowSMS server are then delivered to configured mobile phones using a GSM modem connected via serial port or USB.
