Text messages (SMS and MMS)
In todays mobile messaging systems SMS text messages are often used in a two way
scenario. An IT system can send out SMS messages to mobile phones to notify people
about certain events, and people can send reply
SMS messages back to confirm they have received the message. The message exchange can
also be initiated by the mobile user, who sends in an SMS message and receives a
response from the system. Ozeki NG SMS Gateway makes this two way communication
Automated voice calls are appropriate when the mobile user needs to be contacted
urgently, or it is important to have an immediate reply or information about whether
he got the message or not.
The voice call feature of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway can be accessed the same way
as the SMS feature. A telephone number and the message text (or a file name
to a previously recorded audio file) should be provided. After receiving the request
Ozeki NG will dial the telephone number and when the call is picked up by the
remote end it will read in the text using the built in text to speech engine
(or it will play the previously recorded audio file).
During the call the remote party can optionally press a DTMF key on the telephone
to confirm the call. In all cases a report is returned to the application
containing information about whether the call was successfully completed, what percentage
of the audio was played, and which DTMF key did the remote party press. This
way confirmed notifications and customers surveys can be executed with great
Setting up an automated SMS or Voice call
system in your company
It is very easy to setup a system, that makes it possible to communicate with mobile
users through SMS text messages or voice calls. The first step is to
download Ozeki NG SMS Gateway and to
install it on one of your Windows computers. After
the SMS gateway is installed, you need to setup a communication link to the telephone
For SMS/MMS communication you can use a GSM modem
or an IP SMS connection as the communication link
to the mobile telephone network. A GSM modem is basically a mobile phone that is attached
to your computer with a data cable. It can send SMS messages to the mobile network
the same way your standard mobile handset does. (If you don't have a GSM modem on hand, you can
order one directly from us.) The term IP SMS connection refers to an SMS service provided over the Internet. This
service is often provided by mobile network operators for those who want to send large volume of messages. There
are many IP SMS service providers out there who can supply connection details to their service. If you
use an IP SMS connection your Ozeki NG SMS Gateway system will forward the SMS messages to
the mobile telephone network through the Internet.
For making voice calls you have three options to setup a communication link to the telephone
network. (An SMS connection cannot be used for voice calls.) For voice calls you can
use a GSM Voice gateway (If you don't have one, you
can order one from us.), or you can sign up for a SIP account at a VoIP telephone
service on the Internet, or if you have an IP PBX
with SIP support in your office, you can configure Ozeki NG
to use it for making outgoing voice telephone calls.
Detailed configurations for all of the above options are available on this website.
Once the communication link to the telephone network is established you can send
out test messages from the graphical user interface of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. If you have configured
an SMS link you can send SMS, if you have configured a voice link, you can ask the
software to dial voice calls, if you have setup both you will have both message types available.

Once an SMS/Voice gateway system has been installed and connected to the telephone
network, SMS and voice call services can be launched and applications can be built.

To launch a service or to build an application the first thing to do is to determine which interface
is the most appropriate. The most popular interface among businesses is the Database interface.

(MS SQL, Oracle, Mysql, etc) for storing information, you will probably find it
easy to send SMS messages or to initiate voice calls by simply inserting a new record
into the database. Ozeki NG SMS Gateway can be configured to pickup outgoing SMS
text messages and Voice messages from database tables. Incoming messages can be
also inserted into database tables.
