SMPP (Short Message Peer-to-Peer)

YateSMSC it’s a conventional Short Message Service Center with the functions of receiving, forwarding, storing and delivering SMSs in GSM, UMTS, LTE or custom networks. In addition to delivering Subscriber to Subscriber messages it can also implement various Application to Subscriber and Subscriber to Application scenarios.

A full featured, fully documented SMSC

Easy to operate SMSC solution for MNOs, MVNOs, private networks and labs using a JSON API through YateMMI web-interface.

YateSMSC, as well as other Yate solutions, offers a JSON API for configuration that can be used to setup SS7/SMPP interfaces, configure general network settings, request delivery of SMS and others.

The IP used to access the JSON API is provisioned by YateMMI (Mobile Management Interface) or can be set by hand.
