Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP) is a fast and reliable protocol that is used by telecommunications companies around the world to send SMS messages. SMS Broadcast can now offer an SMPP connection to businesses wanting to send large numbers of messages to Australian mobile phones.
To connect to SMS Broadcast's SMPP server you will require an SMPP client, preferably on a high-availability server. SMPP is a complex protocol, so if you are developing your own SMPP capable software you should have on hand a developer with SMPP experience.
Our SMPP service supports
We run a limited version of the SMPP protocol with a reduced set of commands and functionality. Generally, the server is limited to the Australian mobile network only, and GSM SMS only. This means you cannot send MMS messages, and can only send messages containing a limited set of characters. The SMS Broadcast SMPP service is available on request and is suitable for clients sending large numbers of messages each month. Please contact us to enable this service on your account.
SMS Broadcast's SMPP server supports both SMPP v3.4, and is backwards compatible with SMPP v3.3.
SMPP v3.4 is the preferred protocol as you can send and receive messages on a single transceiver connection, whereas in SMPP v3.3 you would need to establish a transmitter connection for sending messages and a receiver connection for receiving messages. Additionally, in SMPP v3.3 you cannot receive delivery status information.
SMS Broadcast need to manually create an SMPP username and password for you. Call us on 1300 667 405 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for SMPP activation. We will also send you full documentation and connection settings to get you started.
We have special wholesale pricing available for our partners sending large volumes of messages to Australia. If you are currently sending more than 3 million message per month, please contact us for pricing details.
SMS broadcast delivers to all Australian mobiles through direct on-shore connections with Telstra, Optus & Vodafone without the use of low-grade international routes
