Core principles

The industry-leading MX Telecom SMS Gateway is one of the highest volume SMS Gateways in the UK today. It has been designed with 3 principles in mind:

  1. Reliability
  2. Capacity
  3. Functionality

The MX Telecom SMS Gateway uses direct connections into the heart of Mobile Network SMS Centres (SMSCs), providing high capacity, reliable, and fast SMS connectivity, direct to an end user's mobile phone. MX Telecom only uses its own direct connections to various operators, and does not go through any third party providers. It is a complete solution; hosted, designed, developed and supported by MX Telecom.

The advantages of using MX Telecom

MX Telecom are unusual as a Bulk SMS aggregator to use a cross-network routing strategy, meaning that our partners are not dependent on just one mobile network for sending SMS. If a network does experience problems, messages are simply sent via a different route. This adds an extra level of redundancy, which is part of MX Telecom's commitment to delivering the highest possible quality of service.

The MX Telecom SMS Gateway has a very high capacity, with any bottleneck tending to be at the partner or mobile network operator end of events. On the very rare occasions when the throughput of messages starts to approach the maximum capacity of the SMS Gateway, an intelligent queuing system is invoked, which prevents one partner's messages blocking the rest of our partners' traffic. Therefore, no partners can ever monopolise the SMS Gateway, because of this unique bandwidth sharing algorithm. So, even when very many SMS messages are sent or received through the MX Telecom Gateway, partners can rest assured that they will not have to wait for their messages to be delivered.

Finally, an extremely high level of detail has been implemented in the SMS Gateway to deal with network operator and handset-specific issues. Sometimes a certain type of message sent with a certain configuration to a certain handset on a certain network may throw up problems. Where the networks or handset manufacturers have been unable to offer a solution to these problems, MX Telecom have implemented work arounds into the SMS Gateway, such that messages are reconfigured and rerouted appropriately.

In summary, by sending and receiving SMS via the MX Telecom Gateway, partners have access to a lot more than just a direct pipeline into the mobile networks.
