ActiveXperts SMS Component works with virtually any GSM 07.05 and GSM 07.07 compliant GSM modem. ActiveXperts recommends one modem in particular: the Cinterion MC55iT modem. This modem is guaranteed to work with ActiveXperts SMS Component on all Windows platforms (x64 and x86).
The Cinterion MC55iT modem is guaranteed to work with ActiveXperts SMS Component on all Windows platforms (x64 and x86). It is a quad-band modem that can be used in all existing GSM networks in Europe, USA and Asia (850/900/1800/1900 MHz). It is a serial port based modem that can also be used with a USB-Serial adapter, and requires a SIM card in its SIM slot to operate.

If your computer does not have a COM port interface but a USB port instead, ActiveXperts recommends the FTDI USB-Serial adapter to connect the modem to one of the USB ports on your computer. This 'FTDI UC232R' adapter is fast and reliable, and comes with drivers for all 32- and 64-bit supported Windows operating systems.
For virtual hosting solutions (Microsoft Hyper-V, Vmware), you may not have exclusive access to your serial- or USB port(s). In this case, you can use a TCP/IP-Serial adapter. We recommend the 'Digi One SP'. This adapter is also used in situations where you want to place the modem on a different location, for instance because of electrical interference.
