Physical SIM Hosting, or Virtual SIM Hosting, is the use of a mobile SIM card to receive and/or send SMS messages. Physical SIM Hosting involves having the SIM card in a GSM modem. Virtual SIM hosting allows SMS sent to the mobile number associated with the hosted SIM, to be passed from the mobile operator's core signalling network to a gateway application, typially using SMPP. SIM hosting allows a customer to use a regular mobile number to send and/or receive SMS, thus enabling the use of a specific mobile number that the customer may prefer.
