The Tyr SMS Gateway has the capacity and technical capability to be used for sending high volumes of SMS messaging quickly and reliably to mobile users in a single country or worldwide. The SMPP API is well-suited to this use; however, we also provide our HTTP REST SMS API (HTTP-to-SMS) that can be equally suitable or our SMTP API (email to SMS / SMS to email / SMTP to SMS) if you prefer. Using these APIs, messages can be sent from your application or systems through your Tyr SMS Gateway account and delivered within seconds. Delivery receipts are also provided in realtime to indicate the delivery status of your messages.

Tutorials for how to programmatically send SMS can be found at the following:


Use Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP) to send SMS to mobiles with the highest level of control, and is suitable for low or high volumes of SMS. SMPP versions 3.3, 3.4 and 5 are supported, and TLS can be used to secure the session between your application and the Tyr SMS Gateway. We believe that for both MO and MT SMS our SMPP API of the Tyr SMS Gateway service is the most reliable, available and capable implementation available from any SMPP provider.

Our SMPP v5 reference is available to provide details on our implementation of SMPP. It is also relevant for v3.4, and to a lesser degree v3.3.


The Melrose Labs Tyr SMS Gateway service is available using our REST SMS API.

Send an SMS message with the RESTful HTTP SMS API
Example using cURL, Node.js, Python, PHP

	--data-raw '{ "source": "MelroseLabs","destination": "447712345678","message": "Hello World €£$" }'

Two-Way SMS and Receiving SMS from mobiles

Enable applications to receive SMS from mobile users for marketing campaigns, receiving SMS from mobile devices for IoT/M2M, and other uses. Use with sending SMS to mobiles to enable two-way SMS messaging.

Virtual SIM Hosting

Virtual SIM Hosting (VSIM) provides a high performance method of receiving up to 200 SMS per second through a customer-supplied SIM. The mobile number of the SIM can be used to receive SMS without the restrictions of normal SIM card hosting. This service is a means of getting the performance of Virtual Mobile Numbers (VMNs) with the advantage of a national mobile number (e.g. a SIM from a mobile network in France for use with a service targeted at mobile users in France).

Virtual Mobile Numbers

Virtual Mobile Numbers (VMNs) bring high performance with low delivery latency of messages from mobiles to applications. A single Virtual Mobile Number allows an application to receive incoming SMS from all supported networks worldwide. The Virtual Mobile Numbers behave in the same way as a regular mobile number, but with the benefit of significantly higher throughput (200 SMS per second) to your application.

Data Retention and Data Privacy

Data retention and data privacy policies ensure that data is handled securely and in accordance with GDPR. Mobile telephone numbers and message content are kept encrypted at rest and in motion whenever possible. Account-level policies ensure that messages are erased in line with your organisation's data retention policy.
