Q7520010: Is there any additional hardware required to send out SMS notifications?
Yes, you need a GSM modem.
A GSM modem is a serial- or USB device. It has a slot for a SIM card. You can use a regular SIM card, i.e. the same one as used for mobile phones. You must connect it to the machine where the ActiveXperts Network Monitor Engine service is running.
ActiveXperts recommends the 'SAMBA 75 GSM/GPRS Modem'. It is reliable and has a good price/quality ratio.
ActiveXperts offers a special SAMBA/Network Monitor bundle (artcile# AX007-0250). For more details, click here.
