What is a Hardware SMS Gateway?

A hardware SMS gateway is a device that allows you to send SMS messages from a computer without the need for any additional external devices. It consists of the recipient's mobile phone number and an Ozeki SMS Gateway One, a hardware SMS gateway based on SIM technology. The Ozeki SMS Gateway application, which is pre-installed on the Linux operating system on our Ozeki SMS Gateway One device, is responsible for compiling the message. It requires a text body and an address. The SMS message will be delivered to your service provider by the device. The service provider will then send the message as an SMS message to the address phone number.

Is your gateway fully compatible with Huawei hardware SMSCs?

The Ozeki SMS Gateway software offers broad compatibility with various Short Message Service Centers (SMSCs) thanks to its support for multiple IP SMS standards:

  • SMPP v3.3 (widely used standard)
  • SMPP v3.4 (adds transceiver support)
  • CIMD2 (alternative protocol)
  • UCP/EMI 4.0 (another messaging protocol)
As long as an SMSC accepts connections using any of these standards, Ozeki SMS Gateway can establish communication and facilitate SMS exchange. While Ozeki doesn't have direct experience with Huawei hardware SMSCs, there's generally no anticipated issue for communication. As long as these SMSCs accept connections using one of the supported standards mentioned above, they should work seamlessly with your Ozeki SMS Gateway.
