Global SMS gateway for reliable and technically rich capability to send and receive A2P and P2A SMS between applications and mobiles using SMS APIs that include SMPP v5 (v3.3 and v3.4 also supported), SMTP (email to SMS / SMS to email), SIP and secure HTTP REST. Coverage highlights of the Tyr SMS Gateway include UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.
A2P (application-to-person) messaging is the sending of SMS messages for delivery to mobiles. It is a quick method for conveying a message to a broad audience, or a single message to an individual, and is used by businesses of all sizes, including media organisations, banks, retail and other enterprises for a variety of purposes. It is commonly used for time-critical alerts, reminders, OTP authentication codes, IoT/M2M and marketing but also for providing information and communication to both staff and customers.
Tyr SMS Gateway accounts are an excellent choice for sending messages to mobiles on almost any mobile network in the world. They can also be used for P2A (person-to-application) SMS to receive inbound SMS from many mobile networks around the world, using Virtual Mobile Numbers (VMNs) or Virtual SIM Hosting (VSIM).
Bulk SMS Accounts
A2P (application-to-person) bulk SMS messaging is the sending of large numbers of SMS messages for delivery to mobiles. A2P bulk SMS accounts provide access to an SMSC gateway for sending SMS, the capacity to handle high volumes of SMS messages and wholesale SMS pricing.
The Tyr SMS Gateway is suitable for bulk SMS, i.e. high volumes of SMS messages, as well as low volume messaging. Accounts are capable of handling up to 100 SMS/sec on request with single or multiple SMPP gateway binds. We recommend SMPP rather than REST when using the Tyr SMS Gateway for bulk SMS.
SMS APIs, Capacity and Capability
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 that can be equally suitable or our SMTP API (email to SMS / SMS to email) 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.
SMPP over TLS Support
SMPP over TLS is supported to secure the session between your application and the Tyr SMS Gateway.
SIP SMS MESSAGE Support
We are a provider with SIP MESSAGE support for sending and receiving SMS.
SMS Webhook Support
When an inbound MO SMS is received from a mobile, or a delivery receipt is generated for an MT SMS to a mobile, a call can be made to your webhook to convey the event.
Reliable and Dependable SMS
Our services can be depended upon to deliver your messages 24x7. The Tyr SMS Gateway infrastructure that we operate for message delivery spans multiple redundant, independent and geographically separate sites throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas. In the unlikely event that one of our sites completely fails, our remaining sites will continue to provide service for all of our SMS APIs. The redundancy includes both inbound and outbound SMS.

Virtual SIM Hosting (VSIM)
Virtual SIM Hosting 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 (VMNs)
Virtual Mobile Numbers bring high performance with low message delivery latency using Virtual Mobile Numbers. 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.
VMNs can be used to provide a local number to which mobiles from the same country can send messages for the same cost as sending a message to any other local mobile number. Mobiles from other supported networks worldwide can also send to the same number.
