SMPP compliance and performance testing of SMSCs, SMS gateways and apps.
Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP ) implementation testing shows the level of conformance to the SMPP protocol when sending and receiving SMS messages between applications and mobiles. SMPP testing also determines the implementation's level of performance.
SMS applications (clients) and SMSCs/SMS gateways (servers) can be tested using the SMPP Testing service. Automated and manual testing is used with servers and clients, and covers SMPP v3.3, v3.4 and v5. SMPP testing consultancy services are available for indepth testing.
Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP) is used worldwide by applications to send and receive SMS messages to and from mobile users and devices. Compared to other SMS APIs, SMPP is often preferable because it is ideal when handling high SMS volumes, an industry standard protocol, and avoids vendor lock-in that can occur with proprietary protocols.
Melrose Labs provides a range of SMPP Testing services:
Test your application's ability to send and receive SMS when using SMPP. The simulators are used to test MT SMS to mobiles and MO SMS from mobiles.
Dedicated SMSC Simulator instances and MO/MT Load Test Clients available on request.
SMPP Penetration Testing
Determines vulnerabilities in SMPP server, SMS gateway or SMSC SMPP implementation.
SMPP client for testing with SMS gateways and SMSCs from a web browser. Supports SMPP v3.3, v3.4 and v5.
SMPP packets are analysed as they pass between the client application and the SMSC or SMS Gateway. The SMPP Analyser acts as an SMPP proxy, with the client application binding to the service and the service onward binding to the SMSC or SMS Gateway. Statistics on PDU type counts, outstanding delivery receipts, and malformed PDUs are provided.
Available on request.
SMS Platform Testing
SMSCs, SMS Gateways and SMPP Servers
Testing shows the conformance of an SMSC or SMS Gateway to the SMPP protocol 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 tests available:
- Bind Type and Version Support (SMPP v3.3, v3.4, v5) [example]
- SMS submission rate (single bind)
- Delivery receipt support and reception rate
- Attribute testing (e.g. validity period adherence)
- SMS load testing (simultaneous binds, SMS load) [example]
- 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. For all other SMPP implementation testing please contact us to discuss your testing requirements.
SMS Platform Testing
SMS Application Testing
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.
Melrose Labs SMPP Testing pricing for our consultancy services is available on request.
