WHAT'S NEW IN SMS and MMS TOOLKIT 5.3

New features in ActiveXperts SMS and MMS Toolkit 5.3

  • SMS and MMS Toolkit 5.3 now supports WAP 2.0 which makes sending and receiving MMS messages using the MM1 protocol more faster and reliable.
  • SMS and MMS Toolkit 5.3 now has the option to set a validity period for MMS messages send using the MM1 and MM7 protocols.
  • SMS and MMS Toolkit 5.3 now uses a timeout for multipart messages. When parts are not received after one hour, the missing parts are marked in the received message.
  • SMS and MMS Toolkit 5.3 will return delivery reports in SMPP receiver mode, allowing users to parse the reports by themselves. This allows you to use a separate transmitter and receiver channel while keeping deliveryreports functionality.
  • SMS and MMS Toolkit 5.3 contains a workaround for a bug in older WaveCom modems. These modems sometimes return corrupted delivery reports.
  • SMS and MMS Toolkit 5.3 now returns more specific error messages on SMPP connection errors. Also SMPP throughput has improved.
  • SMS and MMS Toolkit 5.3 now supports per message TLV fields for both send and receive in asynchronous SMPP mode.
