Send SMS > SMPP

SMPP is the Short Message Peer-to-Peer protocol for conveying SMS operations. An SMPP account can easily be obtained for using the Tyr SMS Gateway or SMSC Simulator.

There are a number of different languages that can be used for sending and receiving SMS. Languages included in our tutorials that can be used for sending SMS with SMPP are:

SMPP API requirements and resources

In addition to the requirements of the chosen language, the following are required to send SMS with SMPP:

  • SMPP API account - SMPP API account for the Melrose Labs Tyr SMS Gateway
  • SMPP API account (simulator) - SMPP API account for the Melrose Labs SMSC Simulator. Allows you to simulate inbound and outbound SMS delivery using an SMPP API account with your application.
  • SMPP Protocol [reference] - Short Message Peer-to-Peer Protocol v3.3, v3.4 and v5 specifications and guides

Other APIs covered in our tutorials that can be used for sending and receiving SMS include: REST


Whether it is SMPP or another API, 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 and from mobiles. 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.
