SMPP (Short Message Peer to Peer Protocol) is a telecommunications protocol which lets applications send/receive SMS through interaction with an SMSC (Short Message Service Centre).
Whilst there are numerous other protocols which have the same intent, SMPP has the greatest market share and is widely regarded as an industry de-facto standard.
Similar to our SMS API, our SMPP Interface facilitates programmatic interaction with our messaging platform. However, it is not as 'everyday' as HTTP and requires the technical capacity to support it.
Cost of SMPP
Unlike our other submission methods, the use of our SMPP Interface requires a monthly volume commitment or a service charge that is in addition to the cost of messaging.
Further information and pricing for our SMPP Interface can be given upon request.
