Multinational corporations often require a setup where a central SMS
application communicates with users in different countries. It is a common
requirement that the users communicate with a local phone number not
an International one. In this example
we give you a possible setup to create such a solution.
To create an SMS system that can serve users in various countries, we
recommend you to setup an Ozeki NG SMS Gateway server in each country
with a GSM modem attached to it (Figure 1). Each Ozeki NG installation
can be configured to communicate with the same database server over
the Internet. For this an SQL to SMS
gateway configuration should be created and the communication with the
database servers can be done through ODBC or OleDb links. Ozeki NG handles
connection link failures properly. This means that no messages will be lost
even if the database connection over the Internet is not reliable.

If the SQL to SMS gateway configurations are setup, the central SMS application
can communicate with the users by simply inserting and reading SQL records to
and from the database.
