Test SMPP compliance and performance of SMS applications, SMSCs and SMS gateways.

Categories: Messaging 

Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP) implementation testing shows the level of conformance to the protocol when sending and receive SMS messages between applications and mobiles. The implementation's level of performance is also determined.


SMS applications (clients) and SMSCs/SMS gateways (servers) can be tested using this service. Automated and manual testing is used with servers and clients. Some services are only available to those with a Pro account from Melrose Labs.

SMSC / SMS Gateway Testing (SMPP Server)

Testing shows the conformance of an SMSC or SMS Gateway to the SMPP protocol support and its performance, e.g. rate of SMS processing. SMPP account credentials are used to connect to the SMPP server of the SMSC or SMS Gateway and perform testing.

SMPP test available:

  • Bind Type and Version Support (SMPP v3.3, v3.4, v5) [example]
  • SMS submission rate
  • Delivery receipt support and reception rate
  • Attribute testing (e.g. validity period adherence)
  • SMPP load testing (simultaneous binds, SMS load)
  • SMPP operation support

Non-conformance with the SMPP protocol, connection attempt reliability and response timings are also reported.

The SMSC/SMS Gateway Bind Type and Version Support test is publicly available on this page. All other SMPP implementation testing requires a Pro account from Melrose Labs.

SMS Application Testing (SMPP Client)

Our SMSC Simulator can be used for testing your SMS application. Testing can include submission rates, the behaviour of the application when errors are encountered, SMPP operation support, connection reliability testing, MO SMS and delivery receipt handling.

SMSC / SMS Gateway Testing

Please provide the system ID of the SMPP account.
Please provide the password of the SMPP account.
Please provide the hostname or IP address of the SMSC / SMS Gateway.
Please provide the port number of the SMSC / SMS Gateway.
Please provide the system type of the SMPP account (if any).
