The Dispatcher software module performs a one-to-many data management function. It receives paging data from the encoder and sends the data to all “In Service” base stations on the paging channel. Encoded messages are sent in UDP packets as Broadcast or Unicast on the customers network.
Dispatcher sends confirmation to the Page NoLoss server when an encoded packet is sent out to ipBSCv2’s for possible retransmission if packets are missing during a switch between computing planes in a redundant system.
Dispatcher tracks ACKs, NAKs, and no responses from base station controllers (ipBSCv2) for each FLEX batch and sends a copy of each batch to the Dispatcher Archive PostgreSQL database for decoding and use in message logging.
