Short Messaging Service (SMS) allows sending/receiving of short textual messages to/from mobile phones and value-added services.

The maximum length of a single SMS content is 140 bytes, which will result in 160 7-bit characters. However, longer text messages can be sent by splitting the message into multiple SMS with the help of User Data Headers. This is done automatically by Wire2Air Mobile Messaging Gateway so that applications do not have to worry about the splitting and concatenation.

WAP Push messages can also be sent via SMS. The gateway supports sending of Service Indication messages that contain URL links to online content such as ringtones or logos.
Submitting SMS Messages to the Gateway:

Wire2Air Mobile Messaging Gateway allows you to send SMS messages with a simple HTTP API that can use:

  • application/x-www-form-urlencoded format
  • multipart/form-data
  • The URL parameters
 
Here is an example SMS submission in application/x-www-form-urlencoded format:
  • POST / HTTP/1.1
  • Host: cmmghost
  • SMS Poll
  • Connection: close
  • Text2Win
  • Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
  • Content-Length: 35
  • To=%2B358501234567&Text=Hello+world

The same submission can be done with URI parameters by doing a HTTP GET for URL:
http://smsapi.wire2air.com/?To=%2B358501234567&Text=Hello+world


SMS Gateway Protocols
The gateway can send SMS messages either "over-the-air" (via a GPRS/GSM modem) or with a direct connection to operator's SMS Server (SMSC).

  • GSM 07.05 (GSM/GPRS modem AT commands)
