- Python - Python programming language
Whether it is Python or another language, you can send SMS and receive SMS between applications and mobiles for a wide range of uses with a number of our services. Please consider using our Messaging, SMS gateway and Bulk SMS solutions.
If you are interested in testing your application's SMS support and are using the SMPP protocol, then we recommend that you take a look at the Melrose Labs SMSC Simulator service that can simulate SMS message delivery to mobiles (MT SMS) and simulate SMS messages from mobiles (MO SMS). The SMSC Simulator supports SMPP v3.3, v3.4 and v5, and has a high degree of SMPP protocol conformance. Later in 2020 we will be providing access to the Melrose Labs Tyr SMS Gateway for A2P, P2A, bulk, wholesale and business SMS, and for text marketing and other applications. The Melrose Labs Tyr SMS Gateway will support REST and SMPP APIs.
