If you want to use mobile messaging in your company, the best practice is to setup an SMS gateway on one of your servers to handle all your mobile messaging needs. This SMS gateway can be connected to the mobile network through a wireless link, by using a GSM modem or through the Internet (Figure 1). It will provide a central point of access for your office users and your IT system when they want to use mobile messaging. This way you can avoid the chaos independent SMS service subscriptions can cause over time.
Wireless connection to the mobile network
A wireless connection can be setup by
attaching a GSM phone or GSM modem to your
computer with a data cable. After the phone (or modem) is attached,
Ozeki NG SMS Gateway needs to be configured
to operate the phone. When you setup this kind of connection
you will need a SIM card, that you put into the phone (or modem). When you
purchase the SIM card from your local mobile network operator, you should
select a price plan that offers good prices on SMS. A wireless connection will
allow you to send up to 10000 SMS messages per day. If you need greater
performance, you should consider to use an IP
SMS connection or more than one
Internet based connection to the mobile networkIf you wish to connect your SMS gateway to the mobile network through the Internet (in other words you want to use an IP SMS service), you should find an IP SMS service provider. This service provider will give you connection details after you sign up for it's service. When you select a provider make sure to find one, who is able to provide SMS over SMPP. SMPP is the best protocol for SMS messaging over the Internet, because it is asynchronous, fast and reliable. After you have signed up for the service, you need to configure the SMPP service provider connection in Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. The advantage of an IP SMS connection, is that it offers much higher throughput. The disadvantage is that it is often more expensive to send SMS messages this way, then by using a wireless link.
