Supports GSM 7 bit SMS
The standard encoding for GSM messages is the 7 bit default alphabet, which
contains english characters and a few international characters for Western
Europe and Greece. These characters are defined in the ETSI GSM 03.38
standard. (International characters refer to the unicode character set, which
contains special symbols and characters.)
In GSM SMS system, an SMS message can contain up to 140 bytes (standard 8-bit
bytes) of message data. The 7 bit SMS alphabet allows you to send 160
characters in this 140 bytes. This means that, when you send a text message,
as long as the text only contains characters that are included in the
GSM 7-bit character set, 160 7-bit characters are compressed into 140 8-bit
bytes to produce the 160 character limit that we are so familiar with.
(Note: 160 * 7 = 140 * 8). Get more information
about GSM 7 bit SMS messages.
Supports Unicode SMS
If you want to send a message, which contains characters that are not part
of the GSM 7-bit character set, the full text of the SMS needs to be encoded
in the Unicode UCS-2 character set. The unicode character set can be used to
send special symbols and characters of all languages including chinese,
arabic, hebrew, cyrillic, special eastern european characters, etc.
In the UCS-2 character set, each character is encoded with 16-bits (or two
8-bit bytes). It means that an SMS message is limited to 70 16-bit Unicode
characters (70 * 16 = 140 * 8). Learn more
about Unicode SMS messages.
Supports multipart SMS
If a message is larger than 140 8-bit bytes, then there are segmentation and
reassembly standards defined, where a single logical message can be sent over
the air using multiple physical SMS messages. The receiving client then has
the ability to reassemble the segmented message so that it again appears as
a single message on the receiving device.
When a long text message is segmented into multiple physical SMS messages,
a special header is added to each physical SMS message so that the receiving
client knows that it is a multipart SMS message that must be reassembled by
the client. These headers are known as segmentation or concatenation headers
or SAR headers.
If you send a long text message containing only characters that are part of
the GSM 03.38 character set, then each SMS segment can contain up to 153
characters. (140 bytes - 6 bytes for the concatenation header leaves 134
available bytes, or 7 * 134 = 1072 bits. The most 7-bit characters that can
be packed into 1072 bits is 153.)
If you send a long text message that includes any characters that require
Unicode encoding, then each SMS segment can contain up to 67 characters
(67 * 16 = 1072 bits). Find out more
about multipart SMS.
Provides delivery reports
Delivery reports are messages, which show the accurate status of your sent
messages. In this way you can receive delivery reports when the message
arrives at the SMSC (SMS center of a Mobile Service Provider). This is
called "Delivered to network" status. "Delivered to handset"
report means that the message is received on the mobile device of the recipient.
Supports SMPP 3.4 protocol
Short Message Peer to Peer (SMPP) protocol is an open, industry standard protocol
designed to provide a flexible data communications interface for transfer of short message data
between some type of Message Center, such as Short Message Service Centre (SMSC)
and an SMS application system, such as Ozeki Android SMPP SMS Gateway.
Ozeki Android SMPP SMS Gateway supports SMPP 3.4 protocol.
SMPP connection between a PC and the SMSC.
Enables two-way communication: sending/receiving
Ozeki Android SMPP SMS Gateway makes it possible two-way communication. It
means you can send SMS messages through your Android application and you
can also receive messages. Ozeki Android SMPP SMS Gateway ensures
unlimited SMS throughput concerning outgoing and incoming messages as well.
Enables message queues
Ozeki Android SMPP SMS Gateway allows you to define the message queuing
process. Message queuing provides an asynchronous communications protocol,
which means that the sender and receiver of the message do not need to
interact with the message queue at the same time. Waiting messages can be
queued easily with this functionality. Messages placed onto the
queue are stored until the recipient retrieves them.
Access messages arrive, when your SMPP client was not connected
Since you can send and receive SMS messages through Ozeki Android SMPP SMS
Gateway, your smartphone, on which you have installed the application, works
as a server. The client-side is Ozeki NG SMS Gateway, as this software
allows you to compose and send SMS messages.
When connection between Ozeki NG SMS Gateway and Ozeki Android SMPP SMS
Gateway was failed, you get an access message about this. This
message informs you that your SMS was not sent or an incoming message was
not arrived. So if you try to connect again, you will not miss any
Works on all GSM networks
Nowadays SMS messaging from corporate system can be solved by using conventional
mobile phones (so called "dump phones"). Ozeki Android SMPP SMS Gateway
makes it possible to use your Android-based smartphone for SMS messaging,
since all Service Providers let in Android to mobile network. It allows you to
send bulk sms through your Android mobile phone from the corporate system. It
can not be prohibited by Service Providers.
How to send SMS from your Android SMPP SMS gateway system.

Comprehensive overview about the SMS application.
As you can see above you can send SMS with standard or special characters
and the system able to handle multipart messages. Besides sending and
receiving perfectly legible messages, Ozeki Android SMPP SMS Gateway gives
information about the status of the system and the messages continuously.
The article above provided reasons for why Ozeki Android SMPP SMS Gateway is
the best. Briefly, this application enables outgoing and incoming SMS traffic,
supports GSM 7 bit, Unicode and multipart SMS messages as well and provides
delivery reports and access messages. Moreover, it works on all GSM networks
and ensures message queues.
