SMS Gateway Overview
Last Updated on by
Short Message Service (SMS) is a text messaging service that enables the sending and receiving of messages between mobile phones. A text message can include 160 characters if 7-bit character encoding (Latin characters) is used or 70 characters if 16-bit Unicode UCS2 character encoding is used (non-Latin characters such as Chinese). Sending SMS text messages requires the eFORMz Assembly Engine, the eDIRECT+ SMS Gateway and an SMS Provider.
NOTE: Minisoft recommends three SMS Providers: CDYNE (http://www.cdyne.com/), DialMyCalls (http://www.dialmycalls.com/) and SendHub (https://www.sendhub.com/). To learn more about the listed recommendations, it is suggested that their websites be visited for comparison purposes. If a different third party SMS Provider is being used, contact our support team at email@example.com.
