Ozeki NG SMS Gateway is going to be connected to Ozeki Phone System through an SMPP connection. In this network the PBX sends out the data to SMS Gateway in an SMPP then the Gateway forwards the message through the chosen service provider to the final users mobile device.
Step 1 - Adding SMPP connection to Ozeki NG SMS Gateway

While defining the route you have to add the name, the source, the condition and the destination of the rule. In our example , Ozeki Phone System will be the source and the destination will be one of the Hungarian service providers (e.g.: T-mobile, Telenor, Vodafone).
Step 3 - Creating an SMPP connection in the Ozeki Phone System software.
After you finished configuring Ozeki SMS Gateway, the configuration of Ozeki Phone System is the following. First, you have to create a connection point between the two software. You can create this by adding an Outside line in the GUI of Ozeki Phone System.

By clicking on the log button, the user can see in the details that Ozeki Phone System successfully connected to the SMS Gateway.
Step 4 - Creating a dial plan
As in the SMS Gateway, you have to create a routing rule in the PBX. You can create this by clicking on Add in the dial plan.
The dial plan defines where the PBX should send the data. In the settings of the connection you can add source, conditions and destinations. As a destination, you have to choose the SMPP connection so that the PBX will send out the data to the SMS Gateway.
Step 5 - Sending SMS message
To be able to create your sms service, you have to install an SMS Extension in the PBX. You can add this solution by clicking on the add button in the extensions.

In the case of proper setup, you can see in the logs of both the PBX and the SMS Gateway that the PBX forwards the SMS message to the gateway, which receives that and sends out the message to the chosen SMS provider.
