SMS gateway is a software platform that enables short text messages to be sent and received. SMS messages from the platform are sent to the direct channels of cellular operators to similar platforms. Sending messages is possible via HTTP API or SMPP protocol. These protocols are standard for SMS exchange.
Why do I need SMS gateway?
Without going into technical details, it is essential to send SMS in bulk in an automated way. There are no restrictions on the geography of delivery and the number of messages to be sent. The SMS gateway is operated through a web interface. To send SMS, you just need to go to your personal account, which is designed as a website, load a database of numbers, configure the message and click on the "Send" button. There is no need to type text, add recipients and perform other actions, which take a lot of time and effort. A signature can be added to the message, and the SMS gateway can also be integrated with a CRM system.
Advantages of the SMS gateway
Functionality. The SMS gateway developed by SMSTraffic is suitable for installation in a large bank and a small company. It is undemanding to resources and has a ready-made API for connecting to internal systems and standard connectors for connecting to operators. Bulk SMS. You will need your own SMS gateway if you need to send a large number of messages in a short period.
The cellular operator provides guaranteed bandwidth, but if you use the gateway with other customers using the same channel, all will share the operator's bandwidth. Data protection. Installing your own gateway reduces the length of the intermediary chain to the mobile network operator, so if you have critical data sent via SMS, this option may work for you.
