What are SMPP, SS7, and SIGTRAN?
Before we dive into the details, there is a need to understand what SMPP, SS7, and SIGTRAN are and their role in SMS delivery.
SMPP or Short Message Peer-to-Peer is a protocol in information technology used in sending and receiving message in mobile phones, including GSM, iDEN, CDMA, UMTS, and TDMA. It utilizes a level 7 TCP/IP, which means a faster SMS delivery.
SMPP is the means for you to receive and send messages from your cellphone. An SMS message goes through the SMPP to connect to an external system and then to a message center. SMPP allows and handles high volumes of SMS at a time.
SS7 or Signaling System 7 is a standard in international communications that offloads PTSN traffic congestion to a digital wireline or wireless broadband network. It has high-speed circuit switches and digital signaling points that can exchange information between SS7-capable nodes.
What this means for SMS is quicker delivery with little to no lead time when receiving or sending messages. It also reduces the need for more resources, and therefore a cost-effective way to handle message termination.
SIGTRAN or Signaling Transport is another IT protocol that serves an extension of the SS7 family. It is unique in that it uses a specific IP transport, which is the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP). It sends SS7 signals directly over the internet.
SIGTRAN widens the reach of SMS messaging and uses the internet for high-speed delivery on a global scale.
What are the standard features of our SMPP2SIGTRAN Converter?
Our SMPP2SIGTRAN connector is feature-rich and includes a full default license that lets you extend your messaging capabilities from only a Short Message Peer-to-peer (SMPP) connectivity to a faster and more reliable Signaling Transport (SIGTRAN).
If your SMPP client needs to reach any mobile network, our SIGTRAN connection is flexible and extends the existing VAS infrastructure to connect to multiple networking entities.
Here are the specifications of the TeleOSS SMPP to the SIGTRAN converter.
TeleOSS provides a single dedicated outbound SIGTRAN connection, which is robust and high-performing to handle the SMPP conversion. Although there is no GUI for our SMPP2SIGTRAN converter, you will be able to access all related information and configurations via file.
TeleOSS allows you to view the log files in a predefined format for transactions made in the last seven (7) days. The SMS transactional log files for the previous month are also available for access in a predefined format.
Every SMPP2SIGTRAN conversion has a single SMPP port. In each port, one inbound SMPP user can use the connection to send an SMS. Likewise, a single SIGTRAN connection can be configured for each port. This connectivity ensures a secure and reliable way of sending and receiving SMS through such protocols.
The TeleOSS SMPP2SIGTRAN converter also allows you to retrieve log files for tracing client transactions and operator transactions. Each log file is available in a predefined format for your reference.
