- Email interface
This interface enables a send order to be sent by email directly to a cellphone (SMS), pager, fax (including file attachment) or telephone (voice message). Any mail program (MS Outlook, Netscape Messenger, Lotus Notes, …) can be used.
The service provides access to the short message peer-to-peer (SMPP) interface for text messaging. The SMPP interfaces applies a standard protocol primarily used for connecting to short message service centres (SMSC) for cellphones. This direct connection has advantages including the possibility of sending high volumes of messages extremely fast, easily and reliably.
The universal TCP/IP access is used to send software directly via Internet messaging. Messages can be sent easily using Telnet (Socket).
HTTP/HTTPS access allows users to send messages directly via the Internet from any software of their choice. Messages can be sent by using URLs.
The method is particularly useful for Web programmers (from PHP, ASP…). In simple terms, it is similar to calling up a website.
WebService Access offers the possibility of using standardized Web methods to send messages to various call systems.
In order to exchange text messages between different network elements and an SMSC, one can use the Universal Computer Protocol (UCP).
