Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9918502A1] A method to deliver standard-compliant messages between locations utilizing conventional transmission pathways (16) without requiring a direct link between standard-compliant devices, or to deliver a standard-compliant message to a non-compliant recipient for subsequent use or manipulation of that data. A store-and-forward process is used while emulating the standard-compliant association between originating (12) and receiving (20) sites. A standard-compliant device operatively associated with the originating site transmits a formatted message file that is received by a network access device (NAD) located at the originating site (14), with that NAD simulating the presence and configuration of a selected compliant device (perceived as a recipient device by the transmitting device). Packaging is added to the message file for transmission over a suitable pathway to the destination site's NAD (18), which simulates the presence and configuration of a selected originating device in order to open an association and deliver the message file to a destination device, software application, or other intended recipient.
