SMSGateWay Duplex

SMSGateWay Duplex is a combined inbound and outbound SMS gateway which allows applications to communicate with the GSM/SMS network using e-mail or an open specification 'queue' based mechanism.

SMSGateWay Duplex allows sending and receiving of SMS text messages from any SMTP capable e-mail system to any SMS enabled GSM/PCS phone. SMTP capable e-mail systems include Novell GroupWise, Microsoft Exchange, cc:Mail and Lotus Notes.

Furthermore, the SMSGateWay software uses an open specification 'queue' mechanism to allow inbound messages to pass in or out via e-mail, web or custom application interfaces, depending on the organisation's individual requirements.

Typical applications

SMSGateway Duplex is typically used by Internet Service Providers, Application Service Providers and any organisation wishing to add inbound and outbound SMS text messaging and/or notification to their existing services.

Customers using SMSGateWay Duplex in conjunction with outbound SMS database applications usually use the queue mechanism to 'drop' outgoing messages into a file system. Customers using SMSGateWay Duplex for inbound SMS database applications are able to define keywords, which determine actions taken on receipt of SMS messages with those keywords.

Examples of data sent and received via SMSGateWay Duplex include:
  • E-mail notification
  • Bank Balance
  • Stock Quotes
  • Logos
  • Ringtones
  • VCARD Business Card Entries
  • VCALENDAR Calendar Entries
  • WAP Configuration
Scalability and Flexibility

Gateways may also be dedicated to certain phone providers if required, therefore allowing differing service levels by provider.
