Before getting into the details of How a Gateway works, let us go through What is SMS Gateway?

About SMS Gateway

SMS Gateway such as MSG91 is a channel which enables a computer to send or receive SMS to or from a telecom network, which eventually gets routed to the mobile phones.

Gateway is a website through which users are able to send or receive SMS (Short Message Service) to recipients within the cell of the gateway, this could even be an international gateway serving across different countries. Gateways connect to the SMSCs (SMS Centers) via internet for a hassle-free real-time message delivery.

The messages written in the user-friendly language in the application is translated to the mobile carrier compatible language which would be delivered over transmission networks to reach the recipients at the SMS Gateways using different APIs (Application Programming Interface).

API Integration

An API allows the user to integrate the SMS sending platforms to their Apps and Websites. API integration plays a key role in the process of sending SMS to mass recipients via users Website or App. These SMS would largely depend upon and the API programming and are often seen in sync with the user’s action.

Here the SMS is sent from a PC with the target App or the Website which is connected to the SMS Gateways with the help of different compatible APIs.
