SMPP SMS Gateway

Operate your own bulk SMS gateway service using the Melrose Labs SMPP SMS Gateway platform. Our cloud-based platform enables you to operate your own gateway and manage customers, billing, supplier connections, routing and reporting. Use the SMPP SMS Gateway to start a business in mobile messaging, provide your organisation with their own messaging capability, or to upgrade your existing infrastructure with greater reliability, capacity and capability.

The SMS gateway is the essential core element to enable you to process SMS messages between your customers and mobile users. The gateway not only handles the technical aspects of conveying messages from your customers, via your suppliers and onto mobile users, but also allows you to monetize the service and charge your customers for the SMS traffic that they send and receive. Prepay and postpay charging models are supported and traffic rating allows you to apply different pricing based on factors such as destination/origin, time-of-day, outbound (A2P) / inbound (P2A) and SMS features (a sub-set of dynamic SMS pricing).

Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP) is the API that is used to enable your customers to connect with SMPP SMS Gateway and for the gateway to connect with your suppliers. Other SMS APIs can be provided, such as REST, SOAP, HTTP, SMTP and others, to aid integration with customers and suppliers.
