Project design specification • Introduction to SMS Messaging • Basic concepts of SMS Technology • SMS gateway protocols • How to send/receive SMS • Project architecture
Introduction to SMS Messaging • SMS stands for Short Message Service • Enables the sending and receiving of messages between mobile phones • One SMS message can contain at most 140 bytes • 160 characters (7-bit character) • 70 characters (16-bit Unicode) • SMS messages can also carry ringtones, pictures, operator logos, wallpapers, animations

Project architecture • Web Browser: Running on client-side, it allows users log in and send SMS messages. • EVI (Enterprise Voice Integration) profile: contain the information of customers • SMS Gateway: an SMS gateway can be set up to handle the connections to the SMSCs • SMS Center: A SMS center (SMSC) is responsible for handling the SMS operations of a wireless network • Web Application: Running in the server-side, it handles requests from SMS users for sending and receiving SMS message
SMS gateway providers • Criteria • Cost for sending SMS messages • Network coverage • Protocols or interfaces supported • API documents • Number of free SMS messages or credits • 2-way SMS messaging • Support service
