Uses of SMPP around the world as part of an SMS Gateway.
Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP) is used as an access protocol, or SMS API, by SMS gateways around the world. Other SMS APIs such as HTTP, SMTP and XML are also often offered. SMPP is however preferable to these other SMS APIs. This is due to it being ideal where significant volumes of SMS are sent and/or received or when vendor lock-in must be avoided.
An SMS gateway typically sits between the application that needs to send/receive SMS and a mobile network's Short Message Service Center (SMSC). Providers of SMS gateway services include SMS aggregators and mobile operators.
The following is a list of international SMS gateways from around the world that support SMPP.
