Low/Medium volume SMS

To send/receive/process low- and medium volume SMS (max. 10 messages per minute), use a GSM modem.
Install SMS Messaging Server on a Windows computer, connect the modem to it (USB/COM) and insert a SIM card.

ActiveXperts supports the majority of all available GSM modems. Recommended: a Cinterion GSM modem.

High volume SMS

To send/receive/process high volume SMS subscribe to an SMPP provider.
Install SMS Messaging Server on a Windows computer, connect the SMPP provider over the internet/VPN.

ActiveXperts supports the vast majority of SMPP providers. Recommended: Aerialink SMPP services (world-wide coverage).

SMS using direct database access

With ActiveXperts SMS Messaging Server, it is easy to send and receive SMS messages. The core of the product runs in the background on a Windows machine (32-bit or 64-bit). Messages are stored in a database (MS Access, MS SQL or MySQL). You can easily send out SMS messages by creating new messages in the database:

SMS using API

It's easy to send SMS messages from other applications. This can be a custom application (e.g. C#, VB.NET) or an existing application (e.g. MS Excel, MS Access) that makes use of the API:

How SMS Messaging Server works

ActiveXperts SMS Messaging Server

Database

The 'Message database' plays a central role in the SMS Messaging Server. It contains incoming and outgoing messages. This database can be MS SQL Server (Express), MySQL or MS Access.
To send out a message, create a new record in the Message database. This can be done in several ways:

The service, running in the background, reads the record from the database and sends out the message to the recipient.

Manager and Monitor

The SMS Messaging Server ships with two graphical applications: the SMS Messaging Server Manager to view messages and configure the system, and the SMS Messaging Monitor to monitor all communication channels, real-time.

API

The SMS Messaging Server allows you to create, delete and modify in/outgoing messages, as well as process incoming messages. The API can be used in any ActiveX/COM compliant development language, incl. VBScript, Javascript, Visual Basic, Visual Basic.NET, Visual Basic, Visual C++, ASP, ASP .NET, PHP, Delphi and more.

The first API sample illustrates how to create SMS messages from a script. The second API sample illustrates how incoming messages can be processed.
