What is an SMS Gateway?
An SMS gateway is a software application that allows businesses to send and receive text messages to and from mobile devices. It acts as a bridge between the mobile network operators and the business’s messaging platform, enabling them to deliver messages to customers in real time. Essentially, it is a middleman that facilitates the delivery of text messages.
How Does an SMS Gateway Work?
An SMS gateway works by connecting to a mobile network operator’s Short Message Service Centre (SMSC), which is responsible for routing text messages to and from mobile devices. When a business sends a text message, it is first sent to the SMS gateway, which then forwards it to the SMSC. The SMSC then sends the message to the intended recipient’s mobile device.
The SMS gateway can be integrated with a business’s messaging platform, enabling them to send text messages directly from its system. It can also be used to receive replies from customers, which are then forwarded back to the messaging platform for analysis and action.
