About Vocera Incoming WCTP Adapter
The Vocera Incoming WCTP Adapter implements the Wireless Communication Transfer Protocol (WCTP) protocol as a server
(specifications use the term Carrier Gateway) with the intent of receiving inbound messages
and providing responses to the senders.
This adapter supports versions 1.0 through 1.3 of the Wireless Communication Transfer
Protocol (WCTP). This adapter version implements support only for Enterprise Host clients, and
it does not support multi-recipient messages.
Support is provided for inbound WCTP from operator consoles, pager consoles, emergency

WCTP provides a simple means of passing alphanumeric and binary messages between wireline
systems and two-way capable wireless devices. The wireless device need not be capable of
responding; a one-way numeric pager would be equally as accessible as any device capable of
bi-directional messaging. WCTP is directly applicable for messaging to and from most other
wireless technologies, including PCS, GSM, and cellular.
