MMS Virtual Mobile Service

Overview

MX Telecom MMS Virtual Mobile Service is designed to receive MMS messages via an 11 digit MSISDN. Incoming MMS messages are handled via MX Telecom's direct connections into mobile operators' MMSCs.

MX Telecom will provide a Virtual Mobile number, which will be the "MMS Send-In" number, as part of a multimedia messaging service. This allows content providers to outsource all MMS receipt requirements to MX Telecom's MMS Virtual Mobile Service.

Technical Information

Upon receipt of an MMS message on the Virtual Mobile number, MX Telecom's MMS servers will automatically send a standard web HTTP request to your own servers. This request will include the sender's mobile number, a .zip file (which contains all the components of the MMS message itself) and a time/date stamp.

To setup an account, MX Telecom will require a URL to which the incoming MMS message information should be sent to via HTTP GET. Technical information on the HTTP interface can be found here.
