(available on NXS Rev. 3 – 4 and MHD devices)

Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP) is a protocol used in the telecommunications industry. It is an open, industry standard protocol designed to provide a data communication interface for the transfer of short message data between External Short Messaging Entities (ESMEs) and SMSCs. The SMPP protocol is often used to allow third parties to send messages to SMS gateways for further processing.

The SMSEagle device is equipped with an embedded SMPP server. It supports SMPP in the following scenarios:

  • Receive SMS requests via SMPP and send messages to the carrier via SIM and radio module
  • Receive incoming SMS from cellular carrier via radio-module with SIM and forward SMS to SMPP client

Within the SMPP feature it is possible to:

  1. send SMS text messages (max. 1300 characters)
  2. receive delivery reports
  3. specify the encoding of the message (7bit ASCII or UTF-8 is supported)
  4. receive incoming messages and forwarding them to the SMPP client
  5. select modems that are used for sending/receiving SMS (only for multimodem devices)
